Several Fylde coast clubs in the West Lancashire Football League were in cup action on Saturday as the Amateur Shield got under way.

Thornton Cleveleys romped into the second round courtesy of a 5-1 thrashing of Hawcoat Park.

Four goals in eight minutes before half-time from Dom Richie (2), Dom Lawson and Adam Healey were responsible for putting Thornton in command of the tie.

Hacken McCracken then pulled a goal back for the visitors on the hour mark.

However, it was to be nothing more then a consolation as Ben Reader added a fifth goal in the final minute for Thornton.

They will be joined in the second round by Lytham Town, who edged past Horwich St Mary’s Victoria on penalties after drawing their game 2-2.

Lytham sealed their victory thanks to winning 4-2 on spot-kicks.

Poulton edged past Wyre Villa 1-0 thanks to Jarred Baines’ second-half strike, just five minutes after the break.

There was no cup action for Blackpool Wren Rovers, who succumbed to a 3-2 defeat in the Premier Division as they made the trip Southport Hesketh.

Tom Cartmel handed Wren Rovers the lead just 18 minutes in, only for Rustams Stepans to equalise just five minutes later.

A penalty for either side made it 2-2, Connor Wright finding the back of the net from 12 yards on the stroke of half-time for Southport.

Carl Eastwood then bagged his spot kick for the visitors to level up the match again five minutes into the second period.

It was Southport who took the three points late on, Wright bagging his second of the game four minutes from time.

The result leaves Wren Rovers sitting in ninth place in the Premier Division table after eight games, 11 points behind the current leaders Poulton.
