It is with sincere regret that our effort to provide a Fanzone and big screen here in Blackpool, for all those fans who are not going to Wembley to watch the game together, has had to be abandoned. BST, along with the Tangerine Knights, have worked very hard to make this event happen and we are deeply upset that Blackpool Cricket Club, having given agreement that they would host this event, have today had to pull out at the eleventh hour due to licensing issues. At such short notice, it was then impossible to reschedule at another venue as there was insufficient time to organise a licence elsewhere. We can only apologise to everyone who was looking forward to this event and also to every BST committee member and members of the TKs who have given so much of their time to get this off the ground. We would also like to register our thanks to Jason Fubar who assisted us with all the preliminary organisation.
We hope that many of you will choose to give your local hostelries your custom instead.
