Results and pictures – Sunday January 6th 2013

A Happy New Year to you all.  Well, it's a good job that we had a Christmas break as all of that rain would have resulted in very little Sunday football.  But now we're back and courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are all of the provisional results from today's programme of league and Cup Sunday Football action. The tables, fixtures and results have now been updated. If in doubt, please call Dennis on 391055.

In the Quarter Finals of the Lancashire Sunday trophy Reform Health Club FC made it through to the semi finals after a fantastic 4-0 away win at Southport & Ainsdale.  Poulton were deservedly beaten by Preston league leaders Plungington Celtic 7-4 who continued their fine run of form with a 7-4 victory.  The Reform Health Club will now play Plungington in the semi.  In the long awaited Gledhill Cup tie, Northern Care beat Wesham 3-1 and in the Division 2/3 Cup, Northern Rags overcame AFC Wilo with a 3-1 win.  No games in the Prem today.  In Division 1, Blackhurst Budd began 2013 as they finished 2012 with a thumping 7-1 win against Bathroom Solutions.  Sportsworld Media have games in hand and are climbing the table thanks to their unbeaten start to the campaign that continued this morning with a 6-2 away win at Mythop Leisure.  There were also wins for Boars Head who beat Chris Allen Garages and Golden Eagle who beat CTK 3-1 whilst the Saddle and 21st Century drew 1-1.  In Division 2, second placed FC Rangers were surprisingly beaten at home by Clifton Arms.  Devonshire Arms are in third thanks to their 5-1 away win Station Tavern.  Teamsport 90 FC won 6-1 away at Highfield Social.  Blue Room beat No4 Celtic and Uncle Tom's beat Marton Institute 2-1.  Top met second in Division 3 and it finished with honours even as Normoss Newton and FC Kingsfield ended at 1-1.  Clifton Rangers finished fourth after they beat Hampton Social 7-1, Metrostars won 3-1 away at Athletico Excelsior and Kirkham Con Club won 3-0 against Old England.  Pump & Truncheon Celtic's 4-1 win over DH Gas kept them top of Division 4.  Score FC only managed to beat Fire & Ice 6-7.  Dutton Arms beat JJ Property 1-0.  Highlands enjoyed a rare win against H&A Social, 3-1 the score.  Finally, Victoria edged out Fylde Coast Veterans in an exciting 4-3 scoreline.

Big Al is in referee Mark Hughes' notebook

Not long before the break Poulton equalised again after Danny Morris knocked down a cross for brother Chris.  2-2

Plungington were unfortunate to go in at only 2-2.  They had a great shout for a penalty when 2-1 ahead but referee Hughes waved it away.

In the second half Plungington quickly took full control as they went ahead for the third time in the match

Plungington extended their lead with the best goal of the game.  The impressive winger cut in from the right and bent an unstoppable shot high past Speight into the top corner.  2-4

Carl Eastwood

Plungington make it 5-2 and poulton were down and out.  Plungington were good value for their win this morning and will take some stopping in the semi final.
