WALNEY Island stretched their unbeaten run in the West Lancashire League Division Two to seven games this season with a 2-0 home win over newcomers Galgate.

Although Galgate are currently bottom of the division, they gave Walney a real battle and it wasn’t until the last ten minutes that the points were secured.

Some good interplay between Kieron Sollaway, Zach Walker and Matt Lockley saw the latter put Walney 1-0 up on the half-hour mark and the same player was on hand late on in the game to fire home his second.

Walney were good for their win and their defence, which has only conceded three goals this campaign, kept Galgate at bay for the 90 minutes.

Elsewhere in the division, Dalton United beat Furness Rovers 3-2. Rovers took the lead through Nath Cloudsdale, but Gareth Jones equalised right on half time.

Lewis Jones put Rovers 2-1 ahead just after the half time break only for Dalton to draw level through Jonathon While.

But then, in the last minute, Jones gave Dalton all three points.
