An unfortunate crash on the A590 meant Walney Island’s West Lancashire League match against Burscough Dynamo didn’t start until 3:30pm after they arrived just half an hour earlier.

The visitors didn’t show too many signs of the extended bus trip and were 3-0 up after an hour thanks to goals from Kieran Sollaway, Zach Walker and a James Bailey header. Burscough rang the changes and Walney switched off to concede three quick goals but with only ten minutes remaining, two more crunching headers from Bailey made the long trip worthwhile.
