Happy days for Barrow Wanderers as they defeat Walney

BARROW Wanderers turned the Bay West Lancashire League Division Two table on its head by beating Walney Island 2-1 at Lesh Lane.

Many games had to be called off early in the morning where travel was involved, due to overnight frost on top of saturated pitches, but this local derby survived and Wanderers dug in for a much-needed victory.

In an even first half Walney managed to go in 1-0 up through top scorer Jordan Brough.

Wanderers started well in the second period and eventually Andrew Whiteford equalised, following up after a Jasper Carey header was saved.

Andrew Forristal was always a danger and when his long-range effort was parried, Carey was first to react to score the winning goal.

The only other game played in the division saw leaders Hurst Green lose 4-3 at home to Bolton County after being 3-0 up. With Leyland, Askam and Whinney Hill all postponed, it’s very tight at the top of the table.

The Training Pitch was the only venue to be declared fit in Division One and Furness Rovers were easy 4-1 winners against Turton. Scorers were Steve Caskie, 2, Hakan McCracken and Jack Cooksey and the win sees Rovers safely ensconced in mid table.

In the Premier Division Vickerstown returned to form with a superb 4-1 win at Fulwood Amateurs thanks to a brace from Rob Bruce and further goals from Danny Cummings and Sean Paterson.

Vickerstown reserves were also in great form as they hammered Barrow Wanderers reserves 14-0 in a game that had to be played again having been abandoned in August with the score at 2-0. I’m sure Wanderers wish that result could have stood now!

Mark Johnson scored four and Tony Gooding grabbed a hat-trick with Craig May and Gav Butler each scoring twice. The other goals came from Aaron Webb, a screamer from Dave Adams, and player manager Steve Brennan, who tapped in from an inch.

The result keeps Vickerstown top of the FPL Riflemans Garage Premier Division but Haverigg United are well placed in second after a close derby win over Millom reserves as Luke Chmiel scored the only goal of the game.

Holker Old Boys returned to winning ways by beating Dalton United reserves 3-1. Holker’s scorers were Jack Hargreaves, Basil Olabi and Conor Erdis with Sam Lightfoot on target for Dalton.

Kirkby United fought back from 3-1 down to win 4-3 against Crooklands Casuals reserves. Kirkby’s scorers were Mike Code, Tom Harrison, man of the match Matty Bruce and young sub Matty Bickerdike. Crooklands scorers were Mike Hargreaves, Paul Bell and Sam Stephens.

Hawcoat Park reserves doubled their points tally with a 3-0 win over Furness Rovers reserves thanks to goals from Elliott Moore, Ryan Brown and Dave Round junior.

Hawcoat’s third team were surprise winners over GSK Ulverston Rangers reserves in the second round of the Horne Cup.

Carl Mackay scored all five goals as they edged home in a nine-goal thriller. Rangers’ scorers were Stuart Smith, 2, Andy Young and Dan Miller.

Askam United reserves progressed by beating Barrow Celtic reserves 2-1 at Duddon Road. Andy Thomason and Scott Paisley scored for the home side with Iain McDonald scoring again for Celtic, for whom keeper Paul Hunt had a storming game.

Haverigg United reserves had an easy path to the last eight as Walney Island A were unable to raise a side.

Phil Kyle scored the only goal of the game for Barrow Island against Walney Island reserves to keep them top of Premier Tiles Division One.

Holker Old Boys A beat Vickerstown A 3-0 with goals from Mark Conlin, 2, and Scott Bowes. Swarthmoor Social reserves beat Furness Cavaliers reserves 2-1 at Park Road. Star of the show was Rikki Gallagher, who opened the scoring with a stunning shot from long range, and Stuart Smith made it 2-0 from a yard out following a goalkeeping error.

Scott Linklater pulled a goal back late on for Cavs through a free-kick from outside the box.

Millom reserves put some daylight between themselves and Dalton United A by winning this basement battle 5-2. Scorers were Tom King, Will King, Owen Gilchrist, Jamie Pattinson and Steven Rowe. Dean Crossman and Matt Theobald replied for Dalton.

Only one game was played in Division Two where Bootle reserves beat Askam United A 3-1 with goals from Will Singleton, Oliver Smith, plus an own goal, while Steve Wilton was on target for Askam.
