Sportspy Reports 2010/11

Last Sunday, Quilligans FC narrowly beat the Devonshire Arms FC in the Premier/Division 1 Cup final.  Our friends from Blackpool TV were again there with the cameras.  Click  here to see the action.

Tonight saw the annual Carberry Cup match between the represenatitive teams of the BFSFA and Preston Sunday Football League.  The game took place at Blackpool Wren Rovers FC.  No pictures I'm afraid as the camera has malfunctioned and gone in for repair.  The final score was 1-0 to Preston who scored on 67 through Lydon Hodgkiss. Overall, the BFSFA side dominated possession in the opposition half with some good football.  We created countless good chances but despite having four or five of our top strikers on show we just couldn't finish through a combination of bad luck, poor finishing, wrong choices, good defending and an excellent display of keeping by MOM James Brindle.  Credit to the Preston side who all put in 100% effort and congratulations to them on winning the Carberry Cup.  Team photo now added courtesy of Martin Tierney.

Here is the last of our weekly BFSFA results round ups described by Frank Kennedy and courtesy of the BFSFA. 

Courtesy of the BFSFA committee, here are the provisional results from today's final league programme of the 2010/11 Sunday football season  as well as the final of the Premier & Division 1 Cup. Tables and results now updated. 

It's frankly unbelievable that Fleetwood Town FC have reached the play offs during their first season in the Blue Square Premier Division.  Whatever happens the club has done magnificently but they're now on the brink of football league status.  The first major hurdle is to get past AFC Wimbledon.  The first leg of the play offs takes place at Highbury Avenue this evening (Friday-19:45) before the away leg next Tuesday.  With the capacity of their ever improving ground now up to 5,000 the club have assured Fyldesport that anyone wishing to pay on the gate will gain admission.  In addition, AFC Fylde look to continue their climb up the footballing pyramid away at Chorley tonight where a win and a second successive promotion will take the Coasters into the Evostick Premier Division (KO 19:45).  Best of luck to to both clubs.  Get out and watch some local footie!

Courtesy of the committee, here are the provisional results from last night's  final programme of midweek matches.  The fixtures for Sunday are online.  Tables, fixtures and results now updated via the links to the left of the homepage.

Help!

May 1st and courtesy of the committee, here are the provisional results from today's programme of League and Cup action.  The fixtures for the final week of the season are now on-line. If in doubt please contact Dennis Peters on 391055.  Tables, fixtures and results now updated. 

A closer-than-expected result at AFC Blackpool where Tower Lounge FC beat Division 3's Teamsport 90 4-2 to lift the Division 2 & 3 Cup.
