Vodkat League round-up

Vodkat League

There were plenty of goals in the weekend games involving Lancashire's Vodkat League clubs.

In the FA Vase second qualifying round, an extra-time penalty from Squires Gate skipper Nigel Taylor clinched a 2-1 win away at neighbours AFC Blackpool.

Colne had to settle for a midweek replay against Holker after extra time failed to separate the two sides.

The game went to extra time, Jamie Longley scoring the goal that ensured a second chance for his side.

Ramsbottom United enjoyed a 3-1 win in South Yorkshire against Worsborough Bride Athletic. After a goalless first half, Andy Dawson, Jon Stephenson and Chris Jones put the game out of reach for the home side, who grabbed a late consolation.

Bacup Borough's interest in the Vase ended with a 4-0 defeat at Runcorn Linnets.

In the Vodkat League Premier Division, AFC Fylde won 3-2 at Newcastle Town, inflicting the first defeat of the season on the league leaders.

Mick Howarth and Sean Paterson twice gave Fylde the lead before Matt Walwyn struck the winner 13 minutes from time.

Nelson emerged victorious from a seven-goal thriller at Formby.

Two down early in the second half, a goal from Alex Mugan and two from Sam Heap put Nelson ahead before Formby drew level four minutes from time. However, within a minute Chris Clarkson fired home to earn Nelson all three points.

In the Vodkat League First Division, a Chris Ridehalgh strike gave Padiham a lead at Irlam. But it lasted only two minutes before the home side hit back to earn a share of the points.

Darwen almost staged an amazing recovery at Chadderton after being 4-0 down after 66 minutes.

Goals from Adam Coleksie, Lee Turner and Mick Greave reduced the deficit but the home side hung on to secure the points.
