In the cup, Reform Health FC overwhelmed Darwen Victoria 8-0, with goals from Jordan Spedding(4), Phil Smith (2), Michael Clark and Neil Larkin. Reform manager Mark Spedding would have been delighted with his squad dominating on Darwen’s plastic surface.

Only one game survived in Division One as 21st Century Windows played host to Wrea Green, who emerged 6-2 winners with goals from Nathan Cook (2), Andrew Thornley (2), Adrian Hunt and Michael Evens. This left Wrea two points clear at the top.

The only match in division two saw Blue Room maintain their fine form with a 5-0 win over Fylde Coast Gates, with goals from Steven Duffy, Darren Elwell, Ben Kelly, Stephen Twist and Stuart Bunn.

Division four saw most of the action as Fylde Coast Vets beat DH Gas 9-2. The prolific Damian Dinsmore added four goals to his impressive total and was matched by Marc Green.
