With widespread cancellations in recent weeks due to the weather, the football was able to get back underway in North Lancashire at the weekend.

In the Premier Division, Caton United maintained their perfect start to the season with a last minute winner at Storeys.

Both sides have had their seasons disrupted with fixture postponements and looked rusty as a result, but Christian Sawacki had given United the lead before David Leslie equalised. With the game heading for a draw, Caton snatched the points in the 89th minute as Mambwe Chilfuyra finished off a counter attack.

The win makes it 10 wins from 10 for Caton and are now three points clear at the top of the table with games in hand over their rivals.

Elsewhere, third-placed Carnforth Rangers gave their title hopes a boost with a 9-0 thrashing of bottom club Bentham.

Bentham had started brightly but were powerless to resist as a hat-trick from Bryon Nixon, a Cameron Holmes brace, and finishes from Phil Meeks, Aaron Jones, Jamie Durnan and Aaron Hoyle put them to the sword and left them rooted to the bottom.

Cartmel and District were in cup action at the weekend as they progressed to the second round as they beat a Marsh United side that struggled to cope with their quality 4-1.

Karl Davidson, Steven Porter, Jamie Chick and Michael Robinson got the goals for the visitors with Jamie Coulton responding for Marsh.

Bolton-le-Sands played their second round cup game against Highgrove reserves with a semi-final spot at stake, and they dominated the match with Richard Harte and Daniel Dixon both scoring twice as they won 4-0.

In the semi-final they will face either Grange or Burton Thistle – Grange making it to round two with a 3-0 success away at Torrisholme FC.

Third Division side Kirkby Lonsdale endured a battle of the defences as they drew 1-1 with Cartmel and District 'A', neither side able able to grab all three points despite an end-to-end encounter.
