Blackburn Northern Men’s 1s 4 – 3 Blackpool Men’s 1s

Not for the first time this season, Blackpool Men’s first team conceded a late goal giving their hosts Blackburn Northern a valuable 3 points in their efforts to remain in North West Division 1.

Despite goals from Sam Bury, Steve Whitley and a returning Simon Allen, the under-strength Blackpool side couldn’t hang on for a point against Blackburn who now move to within a point of Blackpool.

Blackpool’s two remaining games are against the bottom two sides in the division, and need a minimum of 3 points to guarantee their status in the division next season.
