New Farington storm into Challenge Cup semis

New Farington House (yellow) v Tanterton - Challenge Cup

More photos >>

New Farington House recovered their mojo this morning to beat Tanterton 6-1 in the quarter-final of the Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup and set up a semi-final with New Longton Rovers, a repeat of last season’s final.

The last time New Farington played they produced a horror show against The Hares (Skelmersdale) in the LFA Sunday Trophy but they had no such problems this morning. Mind you it was a pretty even affair until the 27th minute when Andrew Leggett headed Nikki Seekings cross into the top corner. Five minutes later they doubled their advantage as Byron Andrew fed Nikki Seekings to make to make it 2-0 and it looked like a total collapse by Tanterton as Andrew Smith fired home New Farry’s third on 35 minutes.

If ever a team needed a score before half time it was Tanterton and their striker Mututu Chilufya obliged on 40 minutes to send the teams in at half time at 3-1. But Mututu’s strike proved to be a false dawn as the effervescent Nikki Seekings beat the Tanterton keeper with a lob on 47 minutes and after that there seemed no back for Tanterton. Action man Bryon Andrew scored directly from a corner on 66 minutes and Peter Brown completed the scoring on 74 minutes to give New Farington a 6-1 win and put a massive smile on the face of manager Stephen Broomhead.The game was well handled by referee Shaun Taylor and his Assistants Matt Howarth and Jack Redman,

Hunters hold on to top spot in the premier division after dismissing AFC Ingol 3-0 through goals from Josh Heaton and two from Brad Carsley, second placed Ingol Rangers beat Walton Athletic 7-0, Acregate Lane won 5-1 at Ashton Villa and New Longton Rovers demolished a weaken Grange 10-1. Theatre Boys excellent season continued with a 3-1 win at Gregson Lane Wanderers which keeps them on top of division 1, Preston Victoria beat Frenchwood 4-0, Ashton on Ribble and AFC Longridge drew 3-3, Wyresdale Rangers and Warton drew 2-2 and Worden Rangers beat St Theresas 2-1.

Tulketh United maintained top spot in division 2 with a 3-2 win at Gregson Lane, Chorley Saints beat Tarleton Corinthians 4-3, Leyland Orient were beaten 3-2 at home by Penwortham Town, Fulwood Park Rangers won 4-3 at Ribbleton Wanderers and Westhoughton made it two wins on the trot with a 2-1 result at Whittle Wanderers. The top two in division 3 had comfortable wins with Arkwrights winning at BAE Warton and Earnshaw Bridge beating Parkside, Bamber Bridge Town beat Kingsfold 5-1 and Walton won 5-3 at Sir Tom Finney.

The two Syndicate Trust Youth Cup 3rd round games finished 5-2 with Croston beating Walshaw Sports and Wyre Villa beating Lostock St Gerards. The two games in youth division red saw Clitheroe win 4-1 at Lammack and Haslingden St Marys beat Padiham 3-2. Southport beat Walmer Bridge 1-0 to head youth division white, Coppull United Blues won 7-1 at Eccleston & Heskin, Euxton Villa beat Burscough Dynamos 3-2 and Leyland BTR went down 7-1 at Ribbleton.

Youth division blue leaders AFC Fylde won 3-1 at Thornton Cleveleys, Springfields beat Penwortham St Teresa’s 2-1, Garstang and Mellor drew 3-3, Chipping beat Lancon 7-0 and Poulton had a 5-2 home win against Broughton Amateurs.

Preston & South Ribble Parks are ON this Weekend

Preston City Council and South Ribble Borough Council have both declared their parks and pitches fit for play this weekend Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd January 2017.

However the both Parks Departments and the local Leagues insist that clubs and match officials act in a responsible manner and do not play on any pitch which is clearly unfit.

Both Bolton Metropolitan Council and Chorley Borough Council have declared their parks and pitches UNFIT for play this weekend and no games must take place on their parks.

Lostock Hall JFC need our help

Site of Woodcock Farm, Lostock Hall

Lostock Hall JFC is petitioning Lancashire Council to allow them to take on Woodcock Hall Farm so that they can develop the site for their club. The farm is situated on the corner of Farington Rd and Stanifield Lane, Lostock Hall adjacent to the roundabout.

This is not an 'aggressive' petition, nor is it meant in any other way except as a tool that will allow people to know about the club’s alternative plans/ideas for the building and land and to voice the club’s ideas at a higher level, where it would be discussed, rather than nobody being aware of their option.

We can all help this excellent club whose youth team play in our Youth Division White, by registering and signing the on-line petition here Lostock Hall JFC Petition

Lostock Hall Junior Football Club will celebrate its 40th Anniversary in 2018 and they desperately need a new home base to bring the club together, one that is big enough for all 32 teams supplying award winning grassroots football & FA Coaching to 450+ children & young people (aged 4 to 18 years). The club is a member of:

Lancashire Football Association
Mid Lancs. Colts Junior Football League
Central Lancs. Junior Football League
Lancashire Sunday Football League (entered as Lostock Hall SC)
West Lancashire Girls Football League

If you require more information about this FA Charter Standard Community Club, please contact the club secretary Vicky Alty on 07496 001652 or e-mail Vicky Alty

Just four games survive the weather

St Theresas (red) v Vernon Sports - Division 1

More photos >>

One game certain to be played was the division 1 clash St Theresas v Vernon Sports on the 3G facility at Preston College which ended 1-1 with Arrondale Richards firing Theresas ahead in the first minute and David Hankin netting the equaliser in the last minute from a penalty awarded by referee Mark Moore. Warton beat Gregson Lane Wanderers 7-4 thanks to goals from Saul Thorpe, John Waite, Danny Thompson (3), Daniel Lenehan and Matthew Wiggins whilst Wanderers scorers were Joey Damsell, Ben Williams and two from Jack Mountain bringing his tally to 13 for the season.

Half of the games played this morning were in Warton where BAE Warton and Kingsfold settled for a 4-4 draw in their division 3 game. Joe Clamp and Phil Critchley each bagged two for BAE whilst Rhys Lisle, Jordan Leadbetter (2) and Jordan Bate netted for Kingsfold.

The only youth section game to survive the weather was played at Lostock Bolton where Ladybridge beat Haslingden St Marys 4-2 in their youth division red clash, Matt Sandham, Michael Price and Connor Elliot scored for Ladybridge, Joe Lloyd and Henry Hindle got the Haslingden goals.

The two youth cup games postponed this morning will be rescheduled for next Sunday and that will inevitably result in other changes. Fixtures manager Mark Moore will be in touch with clubs affected and the changes will be posted on the website.
