Con Woman Jailed

Posted by Neil on Tuesday, 07 October 2014 at 10:36:32

Filed under: Announcements, Sports, Crime

A con woman who stole £20,000 from Lymm children's football team has been jailed after trying to get job as teacher. A fraudster who ripped off a junior football team in Lymm has been jailed after forging a security check to try and get a job in education.

Sheryl Ingham - also known as Cheryl Lee - attempted to change a letter that alerted recruiters at a teaching agency in Leeds to a criminal conviction.

That conviction related to an appearance at Warrington Crown Court in September last year, when Ingham admitted stealing more than £21,969.55 from Lymm Piranhas Junior Football Club. As voluntary treasurer, the defendant paid 29 cheques from the club into her own bank account.

Ingham, then using the surname Lee, was given a prison sentence of 16 months, suspended for two years, by Judge Nicholas Woodward. Despite the conviction, Ingham, aged 39, of Suffield Road, Gildersome, tried to gain employment with Celsian Education, in May this year.

Subsequent checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service - formerly known as a CRB check - flagged up Ingham was subject to a suspended sentence. A certificate confirming the security alert was sent by the DBS to Ingham, who was obliged to present it to the prospective employer.

However, West Yorkshire Police confirmed she tried to doctor the certificate, and continued trying to gain a job working with children. The defendant eventually handed herself into police on July 4 after the forgery was discovered. Ms Ingham was jailed for 16 months at Leeds Crown Court on September 2, this year. She pleaded guilty to the use of a false instrument with intent to be accepted as genuine.

Lymm GP Arrested

Posted by Neil on Wednesday, 10 September 2014 at 15:23:53

Filed under: Announcements, Appeals for Information, Crime

A Doctor from Lymm has been arrested in a police probe on suspicion of possessing and distributing indecent images.

David McMaster, aged 49, is a GP at Quayside Medical Practice in Failsworth, Manchester. He was arrested by police and bailed while the investigation continues. Mr McMaster has also been suspended from working as a GP following the arrest.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: “Following an investigation a 49-year-old man from Lymm was arrested on suspicion of possessing and distributing indecent images.

"He has since been bailed. Enquiries are continuing."

A spokesman for the General Medical Council said Mr McMaster can longer practise as a GP, while he is under police investigation.

NHS England in Greater Manchester has confirmed it is aware of the arrest. It said it was working with Quayside Medical Practice to ensure services for patients are not affected.

According to the practice website, the experienced doctor has been a GP for 25 years.

Mr McMaster has also held a senior position as a board member of the Clinical Commissioning Group for Oldham. He joined as clinical director of urgent care, although it is believed he no longer acts in the role.

Well thought of in the profession, Mr McMaster was a 'health leader', helping form the strategy of Oldham's health services while on the CCG board.

The Warrington resident was charged with planning services including accident and emergency, ambulance and out of hours care. As a result, the suspect spent time observing in A and E hospital departments. And Mr McMaster was responsible for ensuring local people got the best service.

While a GP in Oldham, he worked alongside medical students to offer support and guidance.

Fundraising Match

Former Saracens' and England A flanker, Alex "Bosh" Bennett, would be extremely grateful if any Blog readers could attend his fundraising match on 14th July at Lymm RFC between the Bosh Legends, captained by Nick Easter, and the England Legends, captained by Martin Corry. The game will be in aid of The Alex Bennett Fund for Spinal Injury Charities, The RPA Benevolent Fund and The RFU Injured Players’ Foundation.

The fundraising day will include a coaching skills class for juniors by World Cup winner and former Saracens team mate, Richard Hill, as well as family entertainment, a beer tent and black tie fundraising dinner in the evening.

Players who have already volunteered to take part (subject to bodies being fit!) include:

  • Kyran Bracken
  • Martin Corry
  • Nick Easter
  • Danny Grewcock
  • Andy Gomarsall
  • Jason Leonard
  • Leon Lloyd
  • Mark Mapletoft
  • Matt Perry
  • Jason Robinson
  • Kevin Sorrell
  • Chris Sheasby

Match tickets will be available on the gate at Lymm RFC, Crouchley Lane, Lymm, Cheshire priced £10 for adults and £5 concessions. To book a table at the evening’s fundraising dinner with the Legends guests can email Some tickets, tables and sponsorship packages are still available. Full event details available on here.

Bennett, who represented England A, the Barbarians, Saracens, Orrell, London Welsh and Brive during his 10 year rugby career, broke his neck turning out for his local team Lymm RFC at Sandal in February. The severity of the injury left doctors and family fearing he could be left paralysed, but Alex refused to contemplate never being able to walk again. After an emergency operation and a period of painful traction, his first challenge was to breathe without the aid of a ventilator. 11 weeks later he took his first steps with the help of physios at Southport hospital.

The courage and determination shown by Alex during his rehabilitation has been an inspiration to other patients suffering from similar injuries and the speed of his recovery has been incredible. His humour throughout has also provided a source of strength to those around him. To stop his three children worrying, Alex told them he was in "Superhero rehab" which led to his eldest son William, 5, asking for him to come back as Batman!

The fundraising match on 14th July is Alex and his family’s way of thanking everyone in the rugby community who have shown such steadfast support during the horrific period in their lives.

Bennett said: "The support we have received has been overwhelming. I know we often talk about a rugby fraternity, but never has that sense of family been more evident than in recent months when our life changed irreversibly. I cannot thank Steve Rule and everyone at Lymm RFC enough, not just for supporting me, but also my wife Antonia and our three children. From hospital visits to blogs on their website updating concerned friends, they have been like a family from start to finish. Nigel Wray and Sarries team mates were also some of the first people to visit and to write to me and I have received letters of support from every area of the game imaginable, which has been truly humbling.

"This fundraising match is my chance to give back to the rugby community and to those who have supported me like the IPF and RPA Benevolent Fund and is an opportunity for me to help raise valuable funds for other people who might find themselves in a similar position. The road to recovery would have been so much harder without the support I have received from the rugby fraternity and from the staff at Pinderfields, Leeds General Infirmary and Southport Spinal Injuries Unit, so thank you everyone."

Alex remains at Southport Spinal Injury Unit as his physio, occupational therapy and medical rehabilitation continues.

How to Train for a 10K Race in Just Seven Weeks

Posted by Sarah on Saturday, 25 February 2012 at 19:55:00

Filed under: Sports, Lymm, Competitions

It’s just seven weeks until the very first 10K Race – Here are some training tips to get you running it!

(P.S don't forget the fun run!)

10K runners for 10KSeven weeks may not seem long to train for a 10K race, but assuming that you are already going out for a couple of steady 20 minute jogs each week, you have plenty of time to build up your running fitness to take part in the 10K and, most importantly, if you follow the training plan below when it comes to race day you will have a great time and enjoy taking part – you could even be up for winning a prize!

Entries are coming in thick and fast, so why not enter now using the buttons below.

The training plan is easy to follow and takes up relatively little time, so you can fit it in around other commitments like work, picking up the kids etc. The only thing we would stress before starting your training is that you have a good pair of running shoes, they don’t need to be brand new or expensive, but definitely a pair with life in them that will offer you the right support and help you avoid any injury.

Rest 10K Race Day

The training plan above is the ideal way to train for the race, but don’t worry too much if you have to change around some of the running days because of other commitments, or you want to do your long run on a Sunday. If you do your long run on a Sunday, simply move the other runs on one day, i.e. in Week 2 after running on Sunday, rest on Monday, run 30 minutes on Tuesday, 2 miles on Wednesday, rest on Thursday and run 35 minutes on Friday.

Find yourself a friend to train with if you can. This helps with motivation if you are finding it hard to get out, as you won’t want to let your training partner down and you can also be there for each other to give encouragement when needed. 

Remember too, there is no age limit to running, some of the fittest long distance amateur runners are in their 60s and 70s. A few words of wisdom though, if you are taking medication or have any medical concerns, do speak to your doctor before commencing any exercise program.

We hope the above is useful to anyone who wants to start taking their running more seriously, because it’s great for your health, it reduces stress, strengthens your heart and releases endorphins that can make you feel fantastic – how can you say no to that?

Why not get started by entering the 10K race right now, and then get out there for your first 25 minute run of Week 1.

Good luck all, let’s get Lymm Village running together!
