Blackpool Wren Rovers

Today saw Wrens travel to Longridge for a top of the table clash knowing that 3 points would leave us in a commanding position at the top.

 

Longridge had other ideas though and took the game to Wrens creating many chances. Wrens had to battle and Lee Tobin, Jack Sharples and Nick Greenall were all left ruing missed chances and Mark Smith in goal was called on to make some vital saves. As a result the 1st half finished goalless despite the goal mouth action.

 

In the 2nd half it was Longridge who looked to take the initiative and finally broke the deadlock on 52 minutes. Despite the introduction of Ric Seear, Chris Glynn and Kurt Bradley, Wrens continued to be frustrated in front of the Longridge goal and finally bowed to their 2nd defeat of the season. Results elsewhere still leaves Wrens top with a 4 point advantage and makes the match away to champions Charnock Richard in 2 weeks an even more mouth watering encounter.

 

Meanwhile next week sees us entertain Fleetwood Hesketh with a 3pm kick off. The reverse fixture 2 weeks ago saw us fall to our 1st league defeat of the season.
