The most exciting and competitive premier division for years has no less than four teams in with a chance of winning the title.

Ribbleton, who had no game this morning, are in the driving seat with 33 points from 13 games and they have won 15 of their last 16 games in all competitions and they are also in the semi-finals of the LFA Sunday Trophy. Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs have 28 points from 12 games, and they must play Ribbleton twice before the end of the season, but they suffered a set back this morning when they were beaten 2-0 at home by a very competitive AFC Ingol with goals from Mitch Newsham and Dan Cooper.

Hunters & Ingol Rangers who have 29 points from 13 games beat Tanterton 1-0 at the Arena through an own goal, a result that must have pleased the Tanterton staff, even though they lost, as they haven’t played for several weeks through issues with their ground at Tanterton and they will see out the season at Fulwood Academy in Blackbull Lane. Acregate Lane LC, who are also in the semi-finals of the LFA Sunday Trophy, are in fifth spot with 28 points from 13 games after beating Theatre Boys 3-2. Bamber Bridge United won 6-2 at Ashton on Ribble.

Arkwrights progressed into the semi-finals of the Syndicate Trust Presidents Cup after beating Sir Tom Finney 4-3 on penalties after the scores were level 2-2 at full time and extra time. Finney’s took the lead through Jack Howarth on 20 minutes and Jimmy Allen levelled the scores after 33 minutes. Arkwrights took the lead through an Andy Danson penalty on 55 minutes only for Dean Hitchens to make it 2-2 with a diving header after 76 minutes and that was the score at full time and after extra time. The penalty shootout saw Arkwrights triumph 4-3 and they will meet Park United in the semis. Credit to both teams for a thoroughly entertaining game played in the right spirit and to referee Steve Downer who handled the match well.

Cadley marched into the semi-finals of the Syndicate Trust Youth Trophy after their 7-1 win over Lostock St Gerards with goals from Dan Marley (2), Curtis Roskell (2) James Fowler (2) and Oliver Chaya. Harry Sawyer scored for Lostock SG and Cadley will meet Mill Hill in the semi-final at Fulwood Amateurs next Sunday 03 March.

Earnshaw Bridge beat Walton Athletic 3-0 in division 1 to edge within a point of leaders Arkwrights but the Earnshaw lads have two games in hand. Lostock Hall have a massive 11 points lead in division 3 after beating Rufford Park Rangers 3-1 but second placed Park United kept up the pressure by beating Ribbleton Wanderers 9-0.

Youth division red leaders Fulwood Amateurs beat Euxton Villa 6-1 and second placed Bolton County won 4-1 at Padiham. Youth division white leaders Southport were held 1-1 at home by Fleetwood Gym whilst rivals Garstang beat Mellor 4-0. BAE Warton maintained their 100% record in youth division Blue with a 8-1 win at Springfields and second placed Fulwood Amateurs Blues were held 1-1 by Ribbleton.
