Walney Island still lead the way in Division Two of the West Lancashire League after they thrashed Burnley United 6-1 at Tummerhill.

Burnley started like a house on fire and were deservedly 1-0 up before Walney’s, and the league’s, top scorer James Bailey rose highest to equalise.

Zach Walker then chipped the keeper from 25 yards to put Walney 2-1 ahead but the sides would have gone into the break level had it not been for an unbelievable save from George Scott.

After the interval, Walker added a penalty, Steve Brennan headed home from a corner, James Bailey eventually finished off a good passing move and Will Boulton fired home a heavily deflected shot, definitely one for the dubious goals panel.

Walney are two points clear of Rossendale at the top of the table but Rossendale do have a game in hand.

Furness Cavaliers picked up a handy three points at home with a 2-0 win against Storeys FC, with Abe Brown and Tom Heap the marksmen in what was Chris Benson’s 250th league appearance for the Cavs.

Furness Rovers lost 4-2 at home to Galgate with Reece Vaughan and Liam Shields scoring in vain.

Holker Old Boys made it three wins on the spin as they beat Bacup Borough 2-0 in the North West Counties First Division North.

Chris Wraighte and Gareth Smith both struck for Holker in the first half and the defence stood firm in the second period to secure the three points that allowed Kev Watkin’s side to move up to 11th in the table and within striking distance of the play-offs.

Vickerstown’s tough run of luck continued as they lost 3-2 at home to CMB n the West Lancs Premier Division. Jackson Round and Jack Litherland had put Vickerstown 2-0 ahead after only 20 minutes, but CMB came back strong in the second half before Vickerstown lost out to a harshly-awarded 90th minute penalty for the second week running.

In Division One, Crooklands Casuals picked up a point at home on the back of a 2-2 draw with Haslingden St Marys, as Callum Caldwell and Ryan Rogers found the target.

Coniston have been crowned champions of the Furness Premier League second division after a 4-1 win over Barrow Celtic reserves.

Callum Bircher, Mike Thistlethwaite, Jake Biles and Jack Harris all on target for Coniston who clinch the title with four games to spare.

Elsewhere, Millom St James drew 1-1 with Haverigg United reserves, with Mark O’Brien on target for Millom and Graham replying for Haverigg.

Walney Island A drew 2-2 with Barrow Wanderers reserves. Jed Wilkinson and Jamie White scored for Wanderers but Callum Ducie and Tyler Swales were on target for Walney, who also missed a penalty.
