3rd placed Blackpool outplayed 4th placed Leigh with a convincing 7-0 victory, although Leigh only fielded 9 players.
Lancashire U15 star Ryan Lynch grabbed his first league hat-trick with his third goal coming minutes before the end. The team’s top scorer Martin Hayes claimed two, with the others scored by Declan O’Hara and James Slater.
With 3rd place guaranteed, they can only hope that Formby manage to grab at least a point away at Carlisle to set up a thrilling end of season game for Blackpool in Carlisle. And this could be achievable with Formby having earned a draw in Blackpool, and only losing away in Urmston and Leigh.
