Paul Turner fires Acregate into LFA Trophy Semis
Acregate Lane LC beat Highfield Social 2-1 in the LFA Sunday Trophy
Paul Turner scored both Acregate goals
Two goals from Paul Turner earned Acregate Lane LC a 2-1 win against Highfield Social and a place in the semi-finals of the LFA Sunday Trophy.
This win cannot be understated as Highfield Social sit in second spot in the Blackpool & Fylde Sunday Alliance with a 100% league record and they are three points behind leaders Ma Kellys Showboat with three games in hand. Acregate Lane beat Ma Kellys earlier in the competition.
Highfield took an early lead which they took into the interval, but Paul Turner levelled matters early in the second half and he got the winner with a great solo effort with 17 minutes to go. These goals brought Turners tally for the season to 22. A delighted Acregate manager Gary Duboulay said, “The lads were fantastic, make no mistake that was a tough one, but we dug in and got the result”.
Acregate will be joined in the semis by the winner of the Bamber Bridge United v Ribbleton game which has been postponed twice and will now be played on Sunday 6 January 2019 at UCLan Sports Arena.
