Hunters & Ingol Rangers LFA Semi-final Date
Hunters & Ingol Rangers FC
Hunters & Ingol Rangers will meet Blackpool Sunday League premier division side Ma Kellys FC in the semi-finals of the LFA Sunday Trophy at Bamber Bridge FC on Thursday 05 March 2020, kick off 7.30pm.
Hunters & Ingol Rangers are unbeaten in all competitions this season and are currently in fourth place in our premier division having 16 points from 6 games, they are five points behind the leaders Acregate LC but crucially they have three games in hand.
By a curious coincidence, Ma Kellys are also fourth in the Blackpool league, they have only played 4 league games to date, winning 2, drawing one and losing one and they are 12 points behind the league leaders New Albert FC, but they have four games in hand.
The winners of this tie will meet Highfield Social FC from the Blackpool Sunday League who, by a bizarre set of circumstances, have been given a bye into the final.

Sir Tom Finney held by AFC Preston
AFC Preston (white shorts) v Sir Tom Finney - Division 1
Division 1 leaders Sir Tom Finney were held to a 4-4 draw by AFC Preston in a thriller at Brownedge St Marys and with it went their 100% record this term, the last remaining one in the Open Age section of the league, Dajaine Jenkins and a hat trick from Graham Lyons provided the Sir Tom Finney goals. However, Michael Treacy’s team still head the table with 22 points from 8 games followed by Fulwood Park Rangers on 20 points from 10 games and AFC Preston with 15 points from 14 games.
Blackpool Town were beaten 6-1 at home by Walton-le-Dale Wanderers in division 2. Lostock St Gerards won 2-1 at Clitheroe in youth green whilst Poulton Town Pumas beat Lostock Hall SC in youth red and these were the only games to survive the weather this morning.
As several Challenge Cup, Presidents Cup and Youth games were postponed we can expect amendments to the fixtures for 19 January.
