BURNLEY United suffered defeat as they were edged out by Crooklands Casuals in their latest Bay Radio West Lancashire League Premier Division game.
Billy Lane found the net for the locals – but former Lancaster City striker Dave Swarbrick was a thorn in United’s side as he scored one and created the other for Dave Good as the Cumbrians claimed a 2-1 win.
Longridge Town claimed an impressive point from a 0-0 draw at early league leaders Garstang Town as they travelled up the A6 and performed excellently to become the first team to take points off the North Lancashire side.
Hurst Green claimed the spoils from their Division One clash with Mill Hill St Peters.
Ashley Brierley and Paul Coote were the men on target for Green with Neil Tattersall on the mark for Mill Hill.
Andy Lawrence was on target for Todmorden Borough but they lost on their long trip to Cumbria as Division Two leaders Askam United maintained their unbeaten record this season thanks to a 3-1 success.
Haslingden St Mary’s were also beaten in Cumbria as Marcus Calvert’s goal was the only consolation from a 3-1 reverse at GSK Ulverston Rangers St Mary’s reserves had a much better day as goals from Mike Robinson, Joe Potts, Ben Greenwood and Anthony Taylor eased them to a 4-0 win over Fulwood Amateurs in the Division One Reserve but Burnley United’s second string suffered as they went down 4-1 at Wyre Villa, Charlie Carling the man on target.
Longridge Town reserves were crushed 7-1 at Hesketh Bank in Division Two Reserve with Steve Burt being their man on target, while Hurst Green reserves were also beaten.
Anthony Oliver, Tom Wood and Mark Hitchen hit the net for the locals but they still went down 6-3 at Leyland United.
Matthew Baldwin bagged a brace for Mill Hill St Peter’s reserves and Steven Birko scored the other as they beat Bolton County and Jim Crowther also scored twice for Todmorden Borough reserves as they beat Milnthorpe Corinthians 4-2, Ben Whittam and Terry Lowe were the other men on target.
