Hunters & Ingol Rangers (HIR) powered into the semi-finals of the LFA Sunday Trophy with a 3-2 victory over Blackburn Eagles at a wind-swept Pleasington. The Eagles, who sit on top of their league beat Sir Tom Finney on penalties in the last round after Finney’s had beaten Crown Paints, the holders, in the previous round, so HIR knew that they had a game on their hands.

And so it proved after Blackburn Eagles took the lead after just eight minutes. The strong wind was proving a challenge for both sides but that didn’t stop Adam Stammers netting an equaliser on 36 minutes and the teams reached the interval with the score 1-1. HIR were straight out of the blocks in the second half and Dee Edmonds scored to give them a 2-1 lead and thing got even better on the 65th minute when Edmonds was on hand to make it 3-1. Eagles made it 3-2 on 70 minutes but HIR had enough in their locker to see the game out and claim their place in the semi-finals.

Lostock Hall’s LFA Trophy quarter-final against Highfield Social at Wren Rovers FC was postponed.

The weather dealt its usual hand this morning with more than half of our games postponed. Walton -le-Dale Wanderers and Warton drew 3-3 in the Challenge Cup whilst in the Presidents Cup South Ribble DC won 6-3 at Fulwood Park Rangers, Gregson Lane Wanderers beat Ribbleton Wanderers 6-3 and AFC Preston won 8-3 at Midgery Court.

BAE Warton won 7-4 at Bamber Bridge Town in division 3, in youth blue Longsands won 5-2 at Euxton Villa and Winstanley Warriors beat AFC Blackpool 6-2. Poulton Town Pumas won 5-1 at Ladybridge in youth red and Wyre Villa beat Fishwick Rangers 2-1.

Christmas Meeting - Raffle & Auction

The League’s Christmas Meeting will be held at Acregate Lane Labour Club on Monday 16 December 2019, commencing at 8.00pm.

This meeting is an opportunity for club officials to enjoy themselves in a relaxed atmosphere, with the minimum of league business whilst at the same time supporting our new adopted charity Lancashire Mind.

We have previously had excellent support from local professional and semi-professional clubs in this venture and this season we can once again thank the EFL, Preston North End FC, Blackburn Rovers FC, Blackpool FC and Fleetwood Town FC for donating prizes to the auction.

We ask our clubs to bring a prize for the raffle and invite 2 or 3 guests to the meeting to swell the ranks. Types of prizes tend to be bottles of spirits, wine or cans or bottles of beer, tins of chocolates, ladies or men’s fragrances and we are grateful each year for a football related item or two from Ian Senior of SKkits, who supplies kits and merchandise to many of our clubs.

There are usually over 100 prizes on display and as tickets are only sold at the meeting, all prizes can be won and claimed on the night.

All monies raised at the meeting will be donated to Lancashire Mind together with any other financial support raised for the charity during the season.

Lostock Hall Youngsters shine in LFA Trophy

Lostock Hall FC who beat Newbury 6-0 in the LFA Sunday Trophy

Freezing weather and multiple postponements were the order of the day but it was not all doom and gloom. Lostock Hall (Division 2) played their outstanding 4th round LFA Sunday Trophy tie against Newbury (Bolton) and they produced a fantastic performance to win 6-0 with goals from Joshua Sarda (aged 17) who scored a hat trick, Mitch Sutton (also aged 17) scored two and Owen Johnrose completed the scoring.

Lostock Hall manager Yasin Onemli was ecstatic after the game and full of praise for his players. He said that the pitch at Bolton was hard, but playable although the late kick off didn’t help. His lads now face a stern test away at Blackpool Sunday League side Highfield Social in the quarter-finals. Worden Rangers were also in LFA 4th round action at Wythenshawe Amateurs but they went down 4-1 to a strong Manchester side. Hunters & Ingol Rangers LFA game against Blackburn Eagles at Pleasington was postponed.

There were against for AFC Longridge against Walton Athletic and for AFC Preston against Wyresdale Rangers in division 1 plus wins for BAE Warton at AFC Lytham, Leyland against Leyland BTR and South Ribble DC against Moor Park United in division 3.

The only youth games played were all in youth white where Penwortham St Teresas won 5-3 at AC Preston, AFC Darwen Red beat Clifton Rangers 5-2, Bispham JFF Vipers won 2-1 at Myerscough and New Longton Rovers v Gregson Lane finished 2-2.
