After Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis had put paid to the last two weekends set of fixtures, another bout of horrendous weather meant that once again footballers up and down the county were left kicking their heels last Saturday.

Only three fixtures involving local teams took place and with the forecast not looking favourable for the week ahead there could be a fixture pile-up on the cards towards the back end of the season.

Holker Old Boys went on the road to Avro’s ground to face Golcar United on their all-weather surface and were 2-0 down inside the first 20 minutes. Sam Joel scored from the penalty spot to half the deficit but Holker came back up the M6 empty handed.

Vickerstown were also on their travels as they visited league leaders Fulwood Amateurs, who had hired a local 3G pitch.

Vickerstown fell behind early, but Jackson Round levelled after 20 minutes, only for the visitors to have a horrid end to the half, as they conceded three goals to go in at half-time 4-1 down. Mike Rushton scored in an improved second half display with the final score 5-2 to Fulwood.

Only one game took place in the Furness Premier League as Bootle hosted Haverigg United at Millholme. It was worth the effort for both teams, as they claimed a point each following a 2-2 draw.

Joe Capstick and Steve Pritt were on target for Bootle, while for Haverigg, Bradley Maine and a Jamie Cairns penalty meant the spoils were shared.
