It was Gledhill Cup day for many Alliance teams and the result of the day saw Albion of division two defeat premier division side 21st Century Windows 7-3 as Nitisat Sirisom led the way with a hat-trick. Mike Rose grabbed a brace, while Joshua Reilly and Mike Crossland scored too, Matthew Jones(2) and Ben McKay replying.

Also in the premier division, Fulwood Amateurs’ last-gasp penalty denied Garstang an away win. Garstang trailed 2-1 in the 88th minute, Tom Graham’s goal apparently in vain.
