Fulwood Park Rangers - Division 1

Fulwood Park Rangers beat the weather and AFC Preston winning 5-4 in a thriller at Brownedge St Marys HS thanks to goals from Rob Ford, Rob Smith (2), Dan Mackley and Liam Roberts. This win puts the Fulwood outfit level on points with Sir Tom Finney at the top of division 1 although Finney’s have three games in hand and there is now clear daylight between these two and AFC Preston in third spot.

Hunters & Ingol Rangers beat Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs 5-0 in their Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup game which sees them through to the semi-finals, Richie Allen (2), Jonty McDonald, Adam Stammers & Lewis Pilgrim provided the goals.

Fleetwood Town beat Lytham Juniors 4-3 in youth division red whilst James Finch and Will Middleton were on target for Gregson Lane in the 2-1 win over New Longton Rovers in youth division white.

All the other scheduled games were postponed as storm Dennis took over from his girlfriend storm Ciara to decimate our fixtures.

    Parks are ON this Weekend

    Both Preston City Council and South Ribble Borough Council have allowed play on their pitches this weekend Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th February 2020, subject to the decision of the match referee.
