Today was the LFA Sunday Trophy 2nd Round (last 64) and the holders Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs travelled to the UCLan Sports Arena to face the 2015 winners AFC Ingol. Southport & Ainsdale joined the league this summer with a substantial reputation having won the league and cup double in the Southport Sunday League, the league and cup double in the Mid Lancs League (Saturdays) as well as winning the Lancashire Amateur Cup (Saturdays) plus the LFA Sunday Trophy.
The club entered our league in division 1 and their first two games saw them lose to Vernon Sports (Div 2) in the Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup and they were held 1-1 at Bolton Lads & Girls Club in their first league outing. Today’s fixture against AFC Ingol was their chance to show us their pedigree against one of our premier division sides and they took it with both hands. They went a goal up after 9 minutes from Graeme Mulvoy’s header and looked to be well in control of the game until Dylan Kay caught them on the hop to level matters on one of AFC Ingol’s rare attacks.
The second half was just 12 minutes old when AFC’s keeper Aiden Whitehead spilled a shot and Ben Edwards was on hand to restore the Amateurs lead. Further goals came from Rob Lamont, Craig Taylor and Danny Boden to put the club back into their comfort zone and manager Gareth Jones was well pleased with the performance from his lads.
Ingol Rangers cruised to a 7-0 win against Newbury from the Bolton Sunday League with goals from Stu Parry (3), Jonty McDonald, Zac Wilkes, Ryan McKenna and Jamie Marvill. The Bolton lads were full of praise for the pristine conditions at the UCLan Sports Arena, something that we all take for granted and it is as well to be reminded occasionally just how lucky we are to have these excellent facilities.
Acregate Lane LC had a morale boosting 6-4 win against Wardle with Paul Turner bagging a hat trick, Ashton on Ribble advance after their 3-2 win at home to Wigan Lane, Gregson Lane Wanderers from division 2 beat Blackamoor 8-2 helped by hat tricks from Jack Mountain and Dale Wallace, Bamber Bridge United had an excellent 6-1 away win at Whinney Hill Colts and Walton Athletic will be happy with their 6-2 win at home to Real Haydock who are difficult opponents in more ways than one.
Sadly, we lost a number of our clubs, a depleted AFC Longridge went down 7-1 at Clifton Rangers, Walton lost 4-1 to Craven Heifer, Vernon Sports lost 4-0 at Middleton Town, Lostock Hall were beaten 6-2 by Prestley and Theatre Boys suffered a 4-3 home defeat to Brown Cow Olympic in spite of the efforts of Paul Day making his 150th appearance for the club. Warton suffered a 5-0 home defeat to Southport Colts and Preston Victoria beat Wyresdale Rangers 3-2 in an all Lancashire Sunday League affair.
A number of LFA U18s Youth Cup 1st Round games were played today featuring some of our clubs, Appley Bridge had mixed fortunes going down heavily at Coppull United but Appley Bridge Reds won 3-0 at home to Wigan Junior Latics, Padiham beat Haslingden St Marys 3-0 with much credit to both clubs for ensuring this game went ahead, Lost St Gerards beat Kirkham 3-0 but Penwortham St Teresas went down 3-1 at home to Daisy Hill.
