LFA Sunday Trophy success for Acregate Lane
Walton v Acregate Lane LC - LFA Sunday Trophy
Today saw the first round games in the LFA Sunday Trophy and true to form we had games postponed due to unfit pitches, which means that those games now take priority and will be played next Sunday (weather permitting).
Acregate Lane LC travelled to Bamber Bridge to meet Walton from division 1 in what was the eye catching game involving our clubs and it certainly lived up to form. The opening exchanges were fairly even until the 15th minute when Paul Turner fired Acregate into the lead. However, this was snuffed out six minutes later when Matt Alty banged in the equaliser. Acregate’s lead was restored by Lee Worden before Owen Thompson scored the goal of the game following excellent work by 17 year-old Jack Anderton and Anderton was on hand to claim Acregate’s fourth.
Walton, run by Tom Rowland, Andy Taylor and Zac Heath have made progress through the divisions year on year and that is not surprising when you see their efforts and team spirit. Acregate Lane have long been a cornerstone in this league, always there or thereabouts without ever taking one of the prizes …. but this season could well be the one. Shaun Cromie and Gary Duboulay have got some precocious youngsters in Jack Anderton, Paul Turner and one or two others and they, with some of their experienced players could make all the difference this season, we will wait and see.
