It has been our great pleasure to support local junior football team, Park Utd who play their home games within the Halliwell area at Smithills.
Park Utd are a team with a long and distinguished history. From their website:
Anyone who grew up in Bolton playing or watching local amateur football from the early sixties through to the early nineties will have heard of or indeed played for or against the Institution that was the original ‘PARK UNITED F.C.’
The club was founded at a local hostelry ‘The Park Hotel’ Bridgeman St, Great Lever in 1964 and from those very humble beginnings they became the most successful local football club over a thirty year period in both the Bolton Boys Federation and the Bolton Combination until time was sadly called in 1993.
Park was a huge part of the ‘Winrow’ family football life and was responsible for so many happy memories and lifelong friendships along the way.
The club philosophy was ‘Be successful but in doing so enjoy yourselves’ and when we first discussed forming the team this immediately came to mind and from then on there was only ever going to be one name……..

We bottled an old and Parkuliar ale to sell to at Farmers markets and locals over the Christmas period and were pleased to be able to make a donation to help the team make ends meet. The lads are a credit to everyone involved and have exciting plans for the summer.
