Courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are all of the provisional results from today's frost affected 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 Gledhill Cup Poulton SFC beat Clifton Rangers 6-0 to progress through to the next round. In the Division 2/3 Cup replay, Fylde Coast Gates of Division 2 were knocked out by Kirkham Con Club FC of Division 3 5-4. There was one game in the Premier Division where Blackpool Catholic Club beat Bloomfield Vets 3-1. Things continue to shape up nicely in Division 1. Leaders Wrea Green beat Bathroom Solutions 3-2 at Squires Gate. Sportsworld Media are well placed in third with games in hand after they won 4-0 this morning against 21st Century Windows. Blackhurst Budd are fifth after they beat Chris Allen Garages 5-2. In Division 2, FC Rangers closed the gap on Fylde Coast Gates after they won 2-0 against Uncle Tom's Cabin. The Devonshire Arms are a place behind after a 2-1 win away at Mereside. There were also good wins for Northern Rags, Station Tavern and Teamsport 90 FC. Last week in Division 3 Metrostars beat Athletico Excelsior 3-1 but in this morning's reverse fixture Athletico took revenge with a 9-3 victory. FC Kingsfield returned to the top of Division 3 following a 2-0 win against Hampton Road Social whilst Bispham Hotel beat neighbours Old England 7-2. Pump & Truncheon's 1-0 win against Layton puts them at the top of Division 4 as Score FC were held to a 1-1 draw by Walkabout. Wesham Town were also held to a goalless draw by DH Gas. There were also wins for Fire & Ice, Marton Athletic, Fylde Coast Veterans and FC Victoria.
'Here comes the sun'…..finally and just in time for the pitches at Commonedge Road to thaw out the overnight frost. Clifton Rangers FC keeper 'Monty' was glad of its arrival.
