Lambert hangs up his boots

Atherton Collieries’ midfielder Danny Lambert has retired after five years at the Skuna Stadium.

Lambert, 30, was part of the Colls team that won the Doodson Sports Cup in 2017/18 and then the NPL West Division league title in 2018/19.

He made a total of 132 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals, and was the club’s Player of the Season this campaign.

Manager Brad Cooke paid tribute: “Lambo was a pleasure to play alongside, and a pleasure to manage. He has been an amazing player for the club, full of heart and commitment and he will be sadly missed.

“Danny goes out on his own terms, which for me is the best way to bow out as a player. He finishes his time in football winning the player of the season award, the perfect end to what has been a fantastic career. Good luck my mate!”
