Courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are all of the provisional results from today's programme of Sunday Football league and Gledhill Cup action. The tables, fixtures and results have now been updated. If in doubt, please call Dennis on 391055.
Good early wins in the Gledhill for Bathroom Solutions, Mythop Leisure, Boars Head, Blackhurst Budd, Northern Rags, CTK and Northern Care Colts. In the Premier Division Reform Health Club lost a rare league game as they went down 4-3 away at AFC Additions. Molloys stay top despite losing 3-0 away at Poulton. Xceptional Kitchens beat AFC Wilo 4-1 to go fifth in Division 2. Hampton Road Social and Athletico Excelsior each gained their first point following a 2-2 draw. In Division 4 Fire & Ice won their first ever game with a 2-1 win against JJ Property and Score FC went joint top after beating Layton 5-1.
Live action from Mythop Road Lytham where Division 1 sides Chris Allen Garages FC and Sports World Media FC met in the first round proper of the Gledhill Cup. Sports World dominated the first half but just after the break the Garages pulled one back to make things interesting. However, Sports World sealed the tie with a goal late on from Martin Percival…….but only just! Good work by the ball boy.

Chris Allen Garages FC (Blue) kick off in the Gledhill Cup v Sports World Media FC
Captain Truby (Right)
The Crown Green bowlers were not to be put off by the rain
Sports World take the lead….Adam Kennerley took it down the right, looked up, squared it and the striker drilled it in the far bottom corner. 0-1
'Oy, off the pitch…..no short cuts'
Craig Worrall turns, shoots…………
Half time and the Garages are two nil down
It was off to the adjacent pitch to watch the second half of the Gledhill Cup tie between Division 1 outfit Mythop Leisure FC and Division 2 high flyers FC Rangers. I was rather hoping for a Cup upset. However, the first half was delayed due to a suspected broken ankle for Mythop's Mike 'Elvis' Donohoe…not good
The ambulance is on its way
Lifted gently on to the gurney
…and off for a ride in an ambulance. Best wishes Elvis for a speedy recovery and a quick return to Sunday football
The game re-starts with Mythop 2-0 up
It was soon to be four nil as a through ball was clipped past the keeper.
a week can be a long time in football….seven days ago FC Rangers were comfortably beating Marton Institute but this week they were getting the runaround from a very impressive looking Mythop Leisure who went on to win 10-1.
FC Rangers' keeper….had his sides best chance when a sliced clearance almost found his own net
5-0 at half time
Time to leave FC Rangers to their misery and back for the last ten minutes on the other pitch.
'Can we go home now?…..' 'No'
Sports World WAGS
Craig Worrall…..Sports World won 5-2
