Courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are all of the provisional results from today's programme of Sunday Football league action. It rained a bit during the week so many of our venues were unfit for play. The tables, fixtures and results have now been updated. If in doubt, please call Dennis on 391055.
A week of unseasonably wet weather meant that only ten games survived the heavily waterlooged pitch situation. It was a terrible day for football once again and was even worse for the juniors this afternoon. In the Lancashire Sunday Trophy Revival Tattoos enjoyed a great 6-1 away win against Preston side Theatre Boys FC. Molloys FC went three points clear at the top of the Prem following a comfortable away win at Bloomfield Vets. In the two re-arranged Gledhill Cup ties both Clifton Rangers and Wesham Town both fought back after going behind to progress through to the next round. Golden Eagle went second in Division 1 after beating Blackhurst Budd 1-0 away in Lytham. Fylde Coast Gates comfortably beat a nine man Thatched FC 10-1 at Collins Park to top Division 2 and Xceptional Kitchens are up to third after a 2-1 home win against Blue Room. Division 3 strugglers Athletico Excelsior won their first league game this season following a comprehensive 8-0 victory against Marshall Court. Pump Truncheon's 8-2 win against Marton Athletic took them to the top of Division 4 whilst Dutton Arms continued their good run with a 3-0 away win at JJ Property Services FC.
Action from Commonedge Road where only a handful of games survived the weather. Still, if you're going to go out and about to watch then that's just the kind of umbrella to have. Photo's from the re-arranged Mereside v Clifton Gledhill Cup tie below the results.

Mereside FC are in the orange and were against the gale in the first half
Referee John Hay…awarded a penalty to Clifton Rangers but didn't wait until I was ready behind the goal…..poor officiating.
Immediately after Clifton equalised from the spot, Mereside went straight down the other end and retook the lead.
Hang on a minute…….who is this?
CTK Manager and Power Deranger – Dave Hall
He went straight for referees secretary Dave Connor…..'Send us that ref again and I'll Zap ya'
Loyal Mereside FC supporter Amy Biggs on the hot tomato soup
A Clifton corner is cleared away for another…
It's bent in from the other side….everyone misses it but the ball finds the far corner
Bugger and No6 is down with a knock to the head…time for the miracle cure
Great goal from Clifton's impressive Number 9….Clifton went in the break 4-2 up I think or maybe 3-2
'Get up and get on with it'…… Clifton held on to their lead and played well against the wind to go through to next week's second round with a 5-2 win.
