DAVE Round’s Vickerstown escapologists are doing it again.

The Walney side have moved out of the West Lancs League Premier Division bottom three on the back of some excellent recent performances, and are looking good for survival.

It is not the first time in recent years Town have had to scrap for their Premier Division lives, and the nature of Saturday’s 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Hesketh Bank suggests they are up for the fight.

Despite missing several regulars and seeing Kyle Beach red-carded in the first half, an under-strength Town earned a vital three points with a 2-0 victory at Park Vale to move above their opponents.

Danny Cummings capped a captain’s performance with the opener from the penalty spot before Jackson Round completed the job late on.

Town head to mid-table Turton tomorrow looking for another positive result to move them further away from danger.

GSK Ulverston Rangers lead the mini division of four local sides in Division One following their 1-0 win at Wyre Villa, where Andrew Whiteford’s goal proved the difference.

The Canal Foot side are up to ninth ahead of their home game against Lostock St Gerards.

Two places below them are Askam United, who have a tough job on their hands tomorrow at title-chasing Hurst Green.

Hawcoat Park lie below Rangers and Askam, but do have games in hand on them both ahead of their home game against Eagley.

And like neighbours GSK, Park will also go into the match full of confidence following last week’s 4-0 drubbing of Stoneclough, when Elliott Moore grabbed a brace.

The fourth Furness team operating in that division are third-from-bottom Crooklands Casuals. The Dalton club did their survival hopes a power of good last time out with a 1-0 win at Lytham Town thanks to Tony Butler’s strike, but are without a game this weekend.

Furness Rovers enhanced their hopes of moving up the Division Two table with a 2-1 win at Thornton Cleveleys reserves and would love a repeat performance at Kendal United. Owen Woodburn and Joe Bradbury were on target.

Team of the moment in the second division are Furness Cavaliers, who moved into the top 10 on the back of their 3-2 comeback win at Dalton United. Cavaliers have no game tomorrow while Dalton head to top-dogs Leyland United. How Dalton’s friends and rivals from around Duddon Estuary, Millom, would love United to pull off a shock victory.

Millom put their promotion bid on hold tomorrow as they look to avoid a potential banana skin in the shape of Furness Premier League Premier Division side Vickerstown reserves in a Furness Senior Cup clash on Walney.

There are Horne Cup matches taking place at Askam United, Barrow Celtic, Kirkby United, while the big game in the FPL sees second-placed Haverigg United play third-placed Barrow Celtic at Wilson Park. Leaders Hawcoat Park reserves would welcome a draw between these two to neutralise their threat, as they head to mid-table Millom seconds.

In the North West Counties, Holker Old Boys will hope to claim three points at second-from-bottom Daisy Hill. Guy Heffernan’s side have drawn their last two matches from winning positions, after conceding second-half equalisers against both Cheadle and Nelson.
