After the last fortnight's complete cancellation of Fylde Coast Sunday football the action returned this morning. Courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are all of the provisional results from today's programme of league and Cup action. The tables, fixtures and results have now been updated. If in doubt, please call Dennis on 391055.
This morning witnessed the 2nd round of the Prem/Div 1 Cup. In the two inter Divisional games Division 1 ruled as Northern Care Colts smashed Molloys 5-0 and Mythop Leisure beat Bloomfield Vets 4-2. There are not many Prem sides left in but Reform Health edged out Wrea Green 2-1 on a sticky pitch whilst Additions beat the Catholic Club 4-1. Boars Head played well in their comprehensive 6-2 win against Golden Eagle. There were also wins for Blackhurst Budd and Sportsworld Media. In the Prem, Poulton pulled within a point of AFC Additions after beating Revival Tattoos 3-1. The only game in Division 1 saw Bathroom Solutions beat 21st Century Windows 2-1 to go third. Division 2 leaders Fylde Coast Gates drew 2-2 with third placed FC Rangers whilst second placed Devonshire Arms won 6-2 away at Uncle Tom's Cabin. Division 2 is shaping up for an exciting second half of the season with many teams still hoping for promotion. Highfield Social beat Blue Room whilst marton Institute enjoyed a big away win at No4 Celtic. Teamsport won away at Wilo whilst Hansom Cab held Northern Rags to a 2-2 draw. In Division 3, Kingsfield's 6-0 away win at Old England extended their lead at the top of the table ahead of Normoss Newton who were without a game. Bispham Hotel thrashed Metrostars 7-0 to stay in third ahead of Wesham who won 4-1 away at Hampton Social. The top two both won again in Division 4 and now look unstoppable in the race for the top two places. Leaders Pump & Truncheom won 3-1 away at Walkabout FC whilst Score beat Highlands 8-2 away. Victoria beat Fire & Ice and DH Gas beat Layton whilst Marton and Duttons played out a 2-2 draw.
Action from Commonedge Road where Boars Head FC (Barcelona strip) were hosting fellow Division 1 side Golden Eagle FC in the Prem/Division 1 Cup 2nd Round. In the above picture, the nippy Boars Head player (15) dinks it over the head of Eagle keeper Steve Morrell before going on to slot it home. Morrell didn't even look back at the obvious but instead rightly berated his defenders.

Sunday football returned for most of us across the Fylde Coast this morning but it was still cold on the Edge with supporters of all ages having to get wrapped up against the elements. Poor quality pictures this morning due to the gloom.
Premier/Division 1 Cup action between Boars Head and Golden Eagle (Yellow). Despite good early chances the Eagle failed to capitalise and they paid the price as the Boars raced into a 3-0 lead.
A good tackle by the Boars' keeper
The ball breaks loose along the Eagle six yard line. Anyone there to finsh it off?
Of couse there was – no mistake from short range by the number 9
Referee Chris Haynes
Golden Eagle manager Matt Clarke
Three weeks ago, referee Dale Harvey was a spare part due to a communication breakdown and today misfortune struck again as he was the only official left without a game due to the non appearance of H&A Social FC who also left the JJ Property Services left standing with no opposition.
At Collins Park, Blackpool Catholic Club were hosting Additions AFC in the same Cup competition.
