Courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are all of the provisional results from today's programme of Sunday football action. The tables, fixtures and results have now been updated. If in doubt, please call Dennis on 391055. Midweek evening fixtures continue on Wednesday.
All I've heard all week is how it was going to be 17 degree sunshine on Sunday. Not quite. Instead, it was blowing a gale and pouring down, 'minging' was the most heard description. It was semi final day in two of the Divisional Cup competitions. The final of the Prem/Division 1 Cup will be contested between AFC Additions and Poulton SFC who both maintain hopes of the double. The Prem sides both knocked out Division 1 opponents. AFC Additions beat Northern Care Colts 3-2 whilst Poulton beat Sportsworld Media 5-1. In the Division 2/3 Cup Teamsport 90 FC pulled off the result of the day beat Normoss Newton Arms FC 3-0. In the final that will be played at Fleetwood Town's Highbury stadium they'll play the Devonshire Arms FC who beat Clifton Rangers FC 1-0.
In the Premier Division, Molloys FC drew 1-1 with Reform Health Club FC. Each of them have a game left but Reform will finish third with Molloys in a very respectable fourth.
There's still a lot of football to be played in Division 1 but the Golden Eagle FC currently hold top spot after a fine 3-0 away win at Wrea Green who dropped to third. Blackhurst Budd FC move into second tonight following a comprehensive 7-0 victory against Chris Allen Garages FC. Bathroom Solutions FC are one of three sides on thirty points. They beat Mythop Leisure 9-0 away from home. The Saddle and CTK FC drew 1-1.
Northern Rags have finally hit top spot in Division 2 as they recorded a 1-0 win away at Xceptional Kitchens, perhaps they'll now stay there? None of the others in the top four were in action. FC Rangers won 4-1 against Number Four Celtic and AFC Wilo drew 4-4 with Marton Institute. Uncle Tom's Cabin just love the Fyldesport camera. They played well at the Edge to beat Highfield Social 3-1.
Frenchman's Cove went top of Division 3 after an important 2-0 win away at Wesham. Rivals Bispham Hotel crashed 4-0 away at Athletico Excelsior whilst Kingsfield were held to a 3-3 draw by Hampton Social. Old England enjoyed 5-1 win against Metrostars. In Division 4, Wesham Town FC are firmly installed as title favourites after they beat Fire & Ice 7-0. Second placed Pump & Truncheon surprisingly 'no showed' against Score FC. Victoria are doing all they can to catch Wesham as they narrowly beat Layton 3-2. Finally, in the battle of oldies v youngsters, the Fylde Coast Veterans beat the Highlands 7-2……………………….and now the sun comes out……….
Action from a wet and windy Commonedge Road where the conditions were harsh to say the least. In this picture, a Hampton Social FC player (white) challenges for the ball against a Kingsfield FC opponent in the Division 3 fixture (More pictures below)
