Hunters & Ingol Rangers LFA Semi-final Date
Hunters & Ingol Rangers FC
Hunters & Ingol Rangers will meet Blackpool Sunday League premier division side Ma Kellys FC in the semi-finals of the LFA Sunday Trophy at Bamber Bridge FC on Thursday 05 March 2020, kick off 7.30pm.
Hunters & Ingol Rangers are unbeaten in all competitions this season and are currently in fourth place in our premier division having 16 points from 6 games, they are five points behind the leaders Acregate LC but crucially they have three games in hand.
By a curious coincidence, Ma Kellys are also fourth in the Blackpool league, they have only played 4 league games to date, winning 2, drawing one and losing one and they are 12 points behind the league leaders New Albert FC, but they have four games in hand.
The winners of this tie will meet Highfield Social FC from the Blackpool Sunday League who, by a bizarre set of circumstances, have been given a bye into the final.
