First published in Sport

BURNLEY United celebrated a top 10 finish in the West Lancashire League Premier Division, as Oliver Wood came to the rescue against runners-up Blackpool Wren Rovers.

Rovers had forged ahead through Mark Fiddler's first half strike, but Wood struck with 20 minutes remaining as Burnley claimed seventh place.

Norcross and Warbreck were the big winners in the top flight, thrashing Slyne wth Hest 5-1.

Gary Pett led the charge with a quick-fire hat trick, while never say die Eagley could boast the comeback of the day at Vickerstown.

The Barrow outfit led 2-0 at half-time, but doubles from Tom Darby and Heath Ainscow saw Eagley claim a stunning 4-2 win.

Turton went goals crazy in Division Two, crushing Ambleside United 9-1. Dave Hanlon weighed in with a hat-trick, while Matty Ward also chipped in with two goals.

Mill Hill St Peters Reserves put up a brave performance in the semi-final of the WLFL Houston Cup, before eventually going out 4-2 to Euxton Villa.

Phil Woodman and Ryan Lilley were on the mark for Villa early on but Mill Hill hit back to level with goals from Carl Fletcher .

However, two goals from Josh Briggs saw Euxton line up a cup final appearance against Charnock Richard, who thrashed neighbours Leyland United 6-1.

“The lads gave a terrific display and it showed that we are capable of holding our own against a team from a higher league,” said Mill Hill manager Kieran Keigher.

“We created a host of chances but couldn't finish them off and that cost us an appearance in the final.”
