Bolton Lads & Girls new leaders in Division 2

Bolton Lads & Girls Club are the new leaders of Divsion 2

A week of rain, not to mention the dreaded Doris saw 30 of our 34 scheduled games postponed with the four surviving games played on 3G pitches. Fixtures manager Mark Moore has said that it will be the same again next week in the Youth Section, the Syndicate Trust Youth Cup semi-finals will be played at Fulwood Amateurs FC and today’s postponed Youth Trophy and Youth League games will be played next Sunday. Details will be sent to club officials in the next 24 hours.

Bolton Lads & Girls club took advantage of getting their game played on the 3G pitch and beating Whittle Wanderers 4-1, a result which moves them to the top of division 2 on goal difference from Tulketh United who did not play today. Peter Lancaster (2), Robert Davis and Jake O’Brien scored for the Bolton side whist Kris McMenamin netted for Whittle.

Ribbleton are through to the quarter finals of the Syndicate Trust Youth Trophy following their 3-0 win at Croston thanks to goals from James Cragg, Saul Adam and James Ince.

The top two in division 1 were both in action with leaders Theatre Boys beating Frenchwood 9-1 through Paul Day (3), Ben Leeming (2), Cameron Yeulett, Steven Simpson and Arrondale Richards (2). Martyn O’Malley replied for Frenchwood. Second placed Ashton on Ribble met St Theresas at Preston College and ran out 6-0 winners via Sam Swarbrick, Dominic Swarbrick (2) and a hat trick from Chris Ward bringing his tally for the season to 27.

    Stu Parry hits the comeback trail

    Stu Parry gets instructions from manager Dean Crossen

    Stuart “Stu” Parry is back playing for Ingol Rangers after breaking his leg in a freak accident 51 weeks ago against Grange FC at UCLan Sports Arena on 28 February 2016.

    The prolific goal scorer who topped the premier division charts in 2012, 2013 and again in 2014 was sent on as substitute by manager Dean Crossen for the last 5 minutes of Ingol Ranger’s game against Springfields at the Arena on Sunday which ended 2-2.

    Stu said, “Although it was a very bad break the surgeon told me that the break was clean and he said that it would take a full year before I would be ready to play again, so I am a week ahead of target.

    He continued, “I couldn’t wait to get back onto the pitch, I have been down watching Rangers every week just waiting for the call. I can’t thank the club enough as well as the countless others connected with this League for their support during a difficult year for me”.

    Stu’s target is to get back to full fitness and hopefully play for Ingol Rangers against New Longton Rovers in the Challenge Cup Final at Bamber Bridge FC on Wednesday 19 April.

    Youth Trophy 1st Round games completed.

    Ribbleton (green) v Leyland BTR - Youth Trophy

    The first round games in this season’s Syndicate Trust Youth Trophy were played this morning and the winners will play their round 2 game next Sunday. Fixtures manager Mark Moore is working on the youth section fixtures for Sunday 26 February and they will be released to clubs on Monday 20 February.

    There have been a few issues with the website server in the last couple of days and some clubs have had difficulty loading their teamsheets. Please be patient with us and try to load the teamsheet again, most of the problems have now been resolved.

    With premier division leaders Hunters having no game this morning it provided Ingol Rangers with the opportunity to close the gap but they were thwarted by a Springfields side who held them to a 2-2 draw with Chris Pye and Adam Hoyle netting for Springfields and Ryan McKenna and Adam Stammers replying. Acregate Lane LC moved into second spot with a 3-2 win at New Longton Rovers, Ashton Villa won 3-2 at Tanterton and Walton Athletic will be well pleased with the point from their 3-3 draw at AFC Ingol.

    There seems to be no stopping division 1 leaders Theatre Boys who won 4-2 at Preston Victoria, Ashton on Ribble won 5-2 at Gregson Lane, Warton beat St Theresas, Wyresdale Rangers won 6-1 at Frenchwood and Vernon Sports beat AFC Longridge 4-0. The top two in division 2 both had 3-1 away wins, leaders Tulketh United winning at Fulwood Park Rangers and Bolton Lads & Girls Club at Ribbleton Wanderers. Leyland Orient won 3-2 at Chorley Saints, Westhoughton won 3-0 at Gregson and with Tarleton Corinthians 5-4 win at Penwortham Town it meant that all the games in this division were won by the away sides. Walton won 6-1 at BAE Warton to close the gap at the top to just two points, Earnshaw Bridge beat Adlington 7-1 and Sir Tom Finney beat Kingsfold 5-1.

    The two league games in the youth section saw Southport win 9-0 at Tarleton Corinthians and AFC Fylde beat Thornton Cleveleys 3-1.
