Results & pictures – Sunday February 24th 2013

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.

Anybody foolish enough to put a fixed odds coupon on this morning's Sunday football action would have surely lost their money thanks to many results that went against form.  Premier Division leaders AFC Additions were beaten 2-1 by bottom side Bloomfield Vets.  This allowed Poulton SFC to pull within a point as they beat Molloys FC 4-1 away.  Never write off Reform Health Club.  Their 3-1 win against Revival Tattoos puts them in third.  Wrea Green are top of Division 1 this evening after they beat the Saddle 2-0.  Previous leaders Golden Eagle lost 2-1 away at lowly Chris Allen Garages.  Bathroom Solutions won the game of the day as they inflicted the first defeat of the season for Sportsworld Media with a 3-1 win.  Blackhurst Budd lost 4-1 at home to Boars Head whilst in-form Northern Care were held to a 2-2 draw by bottom club CTK FC.  Mythop Leisure returned to action with a 4-3 win against 21st Century Windows, they're in fourth tonight. 

The chasing pack are closing in on Division 2 leaders Fylde Coast Gates.  Whilst they were losing 3-1 to the Blue Room, Teamsport 90 FC pulled level on goal difference after beating Marton Institute 7-2.  Blue Room are in third.  Northern Rags beat Merside 2-1 whilst Highfield Social beat Station Tavern by the same scoreline.  No4 Celtic enjoyed a rare win against Uncle Tom's Cabin and AFC Wilo did well to beat FC Rangers 2-1. 

Division 3 leaders FC Kingsfield lost 2-1 at home to Wesham FC who moved into second spot.  The Bispham Hotel were beaten 3-1 by Clifton Rangers. Frenchman's Cove beat Hampton Social 3-0 whilst Athletico Excelsior drew 3-3 with the Old England.  It was an important day in Division 4.  After the resignation of H&A Social, Pump & Truncheon found themselves back at the top and they're stil there tonight despite being trounced 8-3 by Wesham Town.  Score FC pulled level on goal difference after they beat Marton Athletic 4-1.  Wesham Town still have hope of winning the title after today's big win, they're in third.  The Victoria were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom side JJ Property Services, a great result for them.  There were also wins for Fylde Coast Vets, Fire & Ice FC DH Gas who beat Walkabout FC 4-2.

Clash of heads

Bitterly cold once again on the Edge but this lad was appropriately dressed

Great tackle

Good punch

Dutton Arms FC (Light blue) v Fylde Coast Vets FC in Division 4

Well, this morning it finally happened.  Two players chasing a loose ball down to the byline with the evil smelling dyke behind……………what happened next?

He belly flops into the mire….very unpleasant

Very nasty but there was much laughter

Every credit….after he was hosed down with the freezing half time drinks bottles, he donned a fresh shirt and shorts before rejoining the action.  Sunday League  – we love it!

Referee Graham Nixon…amazing that he can still tie his boot laces without having to sit down.  He'll sleep tonight.

Disaster for Gates.  They had a throw on the edge of the Blue Room box but six seconds later the ball was in the back of their own net following a quick break upfield and a defensive error

'Off to warmer climes – envious'
