GUINNESS EXPORTS FC 1965/1968 or Reply Privately

Does anyone remember where they used to play in the Lancashire Combination?
Was it the Ormskirk area or nearer Skelmersdale?

The question is answered by former Burscough secretary Stan Strickland on this link http://burscoughfc.proboards.com/...play&thread=1198. I did visit Gigfy Park once, but its so long ago that I was very young and can remember little about it.
