Ingol Rangers are through to the quarter-finals of this season’s LFA Sunday Trophy after an emphatic 9-2 win away at Bloomfield Brewhouse who currently sit third in the premier division of the Blackpool & Fylde Sunday Alliance and they beat Ashton on Ribble in the last round.

Ingol manager Dean Crossen was full of praise for his lads and his backroom team who all assembled at their base at 9.15am and travelled in convoy to the Common Edge Rd ground. Crossen said, “We produced a thoroughly professional performance this morning against a team who have won four of their five league games, I am so proud of my lads and I am sure that we did our league proud”. Rangers goals came from Jamie Marvill, Jonty McDonald, Zac Wilkes, Ryan McKenna and four from Stu Parry.

Gregson Lane Wanderers are through to the 4th round (last 16) after winning their much postponed 3rd round tie 3-2 at West Park Wolves thanks to goals from Jacob Hodgson, Ben Williams & Jamal John and Wanderers will now meet Mill Hill FC from the Blackburn Sunday League in the next round.

The Trophy holders Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs are out after losing 2-0 at Winstanley Warriors in a closely contested affair. After Warriors had taken the lead Amateurs hit the bar and had one cleared off the line before Warriors completed the scoring in stoppage time. Preston Victoria’s exploits in this season’s Trophy came to an end when they were beaten 3-1 by Shawdale at Frenchwood, Simon Bentham got Victoria’s goal and Arkwrights heroics in beating Hunters in the last round counted for nothing this morning as they were beaten 3-1 by top Blackpool outfit Blackhurst Budd at Corpus Christi College. Brett Dawson put Budd ahead after just 2 minutes and it was backs to the wall for Arkwrights until Mark Taylor levelled on 10 minutes. Blackhurst are a slick outfit and they would have taken the lead on 32 minutes but for Arkwrights skipper Andrew Danson making a spectacular goal line clearance with keeper Mike Kinsella beaten.

A needless penalty conceded in the 59th minute gave Budd the chance to go 2-1 up and it was gratefully converted by Ric Seear. Arkwrights threw everything into the last 30 minutes and went close on a couple of occasions but their hopes of an equaliser were dashed by Seear who scored in the 86th minute to give Blackhurst Budd a deserved victory. Arkwrights boss Mike Kinsella said, “They were far too good for us, we did our best and worked our socks off to no avail, all my lads were great, but Andrew Danson was outstanding”.

The only Syndicate Trust Presidents Cup game to survive the weather saw Tarleton Corinthians beat BAE Warton 6-2. AFC Ingol move up to second spot in the premier division after their 6-0 win at Springfields, Bamber Bridge United won 6-2 at Ashton Villa and Ashton on Ribble beat Tanterton 2-1. No games survived in division 1, Vernon Sports lead division 2 after winning 4-2 at Fulwood Park Rangers and the only game in division 3 ended 1-1 between Fishwick Rangers and Leyland Athletic.

The postponements severely affected the youth section also, AFC Fylde won 7-0 at Aspull in youth division red, Wyre Villa and Broughton Amateurs drew 4-4 in youth division white and in youth division blue Euxton Villa now top the table after their 9-0 win at home to Appley Bridge Reds, Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs beat Lostock St Gerards Blues 4-2 and the game between Springfields and Penwortham St Teresas finished 1-1.
