Eagley 2 Poulton Town 2 - Eagley drew 2-2 with a Poulton Town in a game which incredibly saw six players sent off! The Villagers had four players taking an early bath, Pete Darby, Tony Philbin, Dave Morris and Baz Derbyshire, and the visitors two, Mike Tomasson and Paul Parry but this certainly gives a false reflection of the game. Manager Terry Finney explained, "It just wasn't that sort of game! The sendings off came from just two isolated incidents and other than those it was played in a good spirit which matches between us and Poulton always are. In fact their manager and I are good mates. After the game they all came in for a pint or two which shows there was no hard feelings. It was just one of those things!" Phil Hutchinson and an own goal earned the points for Eagley. Burnley Utd 4 Turton 1 -Peter Cooper's Turtons unbeaten six game run came to an abrupt end at the weekend in a 4-1 defeat at championship contenders Burnley United. A disappointed Cooper explained; "Our inexperience in certain positions was certainly exposed and, but for a fine display of goalkeeping by Stuart Davies, we would have been even more soundly beaten. We are able to compete with the majority of the teams in the league but the top two or three are a cut above and work has still to be done before we can claim to be genuine contenders". Denny Kahn got Turton's consolation goal.

Highfield 3 Atherton Town 1 - Highfield are being tipped as a good outside bet for the Premier Division championship and showed just why on Saturday in a 3-1 victory over Atherton Town. Much of the recent improvement in the Highfield camp is down to the Atherton LR connections with former Crilly Park stars Andy Feeley, Keith Ingham and Mark Wilson, who hit all three goals, in the line up. Neil Clayton was on the mark for Town. Boss Harold Crilly said, "I felt we did well enough when we had the ball but didn't do enough when they had it. Whilst I've no complaints about the result, 3-1 flattered them." BICC 3 Little Hulton Utd 3 - Food poisoning prevented Rhodri Giggs, brother of Manchester United top star Ryan, from making his Little Hulton Utd debut but he was present to witness first hand a cracking 3-3 draw at BICC. Dave Lees returning after a six week knee injury scored Utd's first from the penalty spot with Tony Bolton increasing the lead to 2-0 by half time. The home side fought back well and went in front, only to have a player sent off and Mathew Swales took full advantage to earn a draw for Steve Vychinski's side.
