There were goals aplenty in the Furness Premier League last Saturday and league leaders Kirkby United set the tone by beating Vickerstown reserves 4-1.

Matty Bruce (2) Tom Wildgoose were on target, while 16-year-old Alfie Thorpe scored his first senior goal in their win which took them five points clear at the top. Danny Douglas replied for Vickerstown.

Bootle lost an absolute barnstormer 7-5 to a rampant Croftlands Park. Steve Pritt scored two penalties, Graham Hartley, Aaron Bradley and Oliver Smith found the net for Bootle but Matt Dean (4) Mike Carr (2) and Tom Woodend secured the points for Croftlands.

Kieran Clark and Sam Beattie were both on target for Hawcoat Park reserves in their 2-1 win against Dalton United reserves.

Brittania beat Millom reserves 5-3 thanks to goals from Danny Keenan (2) Sam Woods, Jordan Wallace and Sean Sweeney, as Chris Wood (2) and Josh Keen replied for Millom.

Walney Island reserves lost 5-4 at Swarthmoor Social, with Graham Wilcox (2) Tyler Spence, Harry Fine and an own goal making up their tally.

Holker Old Boys reserves beat Haverigg United 4-3 thanks to goals from Andy Benn (2) Conor Erdis and Troy Magee. Anthony Foster (2) and Jamie Cairns got on the scoresheet for Haverigg.

Barrow Wanderers lost another high scoring fixture 7-3 to Barrow Celtic.

Dean Edmonds, Lewis Waterston and Jed Wilkinson were the Wanderers scorers, while Jono France (2), Matthew France, Jack Duignan, Joe Murphy were on target for Celtic and Rob Johnson also helped himself to brace in his last game for them before his move to Canada.

Rob has been a lethal finisher for years in a Celtic shirt and his goals will be missed.

In Division One, Hawcoat Park A continued their 100 per cent record with a 2-0 win at Askam United reserves, but Ulverston Rangers reserves remained on their heels with a 5-1 thumping of Furness Rovers reserves.

Croftlands Park reserves picked up their first win with a 5-3 triumph at Crooklands Casuals reserves.

The new season in Division Two began during the weekend and featured Britannia reserves opening with a remarkable 10-1 victory against an outclassed Furness Rovers A.
