Only two games played today in the Open Age section and both ended in draws. Champions Hunters were held 2-2 at Acregate Lane LC with Dee Edmonds bagging both their goals to bring his tally for the season to an impressive 36. Acregate Lane find themselves in 4th spot thanks to goals from Paul Turner, his 43rd of the season and Ryan Broomhead.

Kingsfold entertained Waverley Park in glorious sunshine at Kingsfold and they had plenty of local support to cheer them on to a 3-3 draw. This was a most enjoyable game to watch between two sides who both went all out for the win. Mervyn Salter put Kingsfold ahead after just 12 minutes and Jordan Leadbetter doubled the lead ten minutes later only for Ryan Micklethwaite to pull one back for Waverly Before half time.

Luke Dean leveled the scores early in the second half then Leadbetter scored his second to make it 3-2 to Kingsfold before Stephen Phoenix completed the scoring with Waverley’s third and even the introduction of super sub Paul Hopkins wasn’t enough to secure a win for Waverley. Nevertheless, they will be please with runners up spot in division 3. Kingsfold rounded up their season with seven wins and four draws from their final eleven games to finish the season in a very creditable 4th place.

Padiham won 4-2 at Winstanley Warriors in youth division red with Kuda Chingwaro scoring twice to bring his tally to 31, Samuel Ashworth and Reon Haworth scored the others. Foxhall and BAE Warton drew 3-3 in youth division white, Charlie Allan, Connor Smith and Steven Hodgkinson scored for Foxhall, Noah Fluss Tramontano (2) and Jake Molloy replied for BAE.

Charlie Longshaw & the kits for Uganda

Our appeal for clubs to donate their old kits to our “Kits for Uganda” Appeal has topped the 100 mark with the donation of two kits from Tanterton FC, and one each from Acregate Lane LC and New Longton Rovers FC bringing the total collected to date to 101.

Local Football League referee Michael Salisbury delivers the kits to the headquarters of Teams4U, a charity set up by Dave Cooke and based in Wrexham. The kits are subsequently taken out to Uganda and distributed to the schools and clubs where they are gratefully received.

Dave Cooke said, “I am eternally gratefully to the Lancashire Sunday Football League and its clubs for their support. We get the vast majority of our kits from your league and they go to kids and lads who have nothing and who cannot thank you enough so I’m thanking you on their behalf”.

Pictured is 8-year-old Tanterton FC supporter Charlie Longshaw, his Dad Martin plays for Tanterton and Granddad Carl is the club secretary. Charlie plays in goal for Ribbleton Juniors and he is a keen PNE supporter.

Mark Taylor treble gives Arkwrights the Division 2 Title

Arkwrights FC - Champions of Division 2

Mark Taylor scored a hat trick for Arkwrights

A 4-1 win at Earnshaw Bridge earned Arkwrights the division 2 title in the closest title race in the division for years. Before kick off today three teams were level on 31 points after 15 games and it looked as if the title would be decided on goal difference and so it came to pass.

Arkwrights, who won the division 3 title last term, faced fourth placed Earnshaw Bridge and won 4-1 thanks to a hat trick from top scorer Mark Taylor with Jonny Wallace getting the other. Trystan Taylor scored for Earnshaw Bridge.

Walton, who finished runners up to Arkwrights in division 3 last season travelled to Vernon Sports and despite winning 5-1 with four goals from Connor Moffatt and one from Ryan Thomas they had to settle for runner up spot on goal difference. Pedro Garcia scored for Vernon Sports.

That left Gregson Lane Wanderers with the biggest mountain to climb as they had the lowest goal difference. Nevertheless, they beat Penwortham Town 3-1 with a brace from leading scorer Jack Mountain and one from Jamal John, Tom Seed netted for Penwortham.

Theatre Boys finished their premier division season on a high with a 3-2 home win against third placed Ingol Rangers. A Levi Hopkins goal at Whittle Wanderers gave Worden Rangers a 1-0 win, their first in the league since 22 October. Perhaps the most surprising result of the day saw Lostock Hall beat division 3 Champions Sir Tom Finney 4-1 through goals from Liam Potter, Mark Ganner (2) and Craig Ashcroft with Louis Minett replying for Finneys.

Padiham eased into second spot in youth division red with a 9-4 home win against Southport and Bolton County are third after their 3-2 home win against Winstanley Warriors. Winstanley Warriors Reds maintained their 100% record with an important 2-1 home win against BAE Warton in youth division white, Jordan Coates got both Winstanley goals and predictably Matt van Wyk netted for BAE Warton. The double header in youth division blue saw Leyland BTR beat Appley Bridge Reds 2-0 and then 1-0.
