The Junior Football Leagues and County Cup competitions managed to get their games played before the new Government legislation over the coronavirus pandemic came into place.

In the Under-17 Cup, Ibis progressed into the next round of the cup after they defeated Wattsfield 4-1.

Wattsfield, who defeated Grange United by the same score last weekend, battled throughout the whole game before crashing to defeat.

In the other cup game, Ambleside’s under-16s defeated Kendal United Colts 3-0 at Castle Drive, while Lancaster City’s under-17s are in the final of the Minor Cup as they defeated Milnthorpe Town 3-2.

Kirkby Lonsdale’s under-15s edged into the semi-finals of the Under-15 cup following a 5-3 win at Heathwaite’s under-14s, while Heathwaite’s under-12s booked their place in the semi-finals of the Eden Stove Cup with an impressive 4-1 win at Wattsfield United.

Elsewhere, Sedbergh Wanderers’ under-13s defeated Ambleside 3-1 in the semi-finals of the Under-13 Cup.

Two games were played in the Lancaster and Morecambe Under-15 League, where Wattsfield United won 7-1 at Halton Juniors before Carnforth Rangers and Galgate FC drew 1-1.

Wattsfield United, under-14s edged out Lancaster City Juniors 1-0, before Lune Valley eased past Wattsfield Youth 5-1 in the two Under-14 League games played.

Kendal United’s under-12s fell to an agonising 3-2 defeat to Cockerham Juniors in the Under-12 League, while United’s under-11s team eased into the next round of the Under-11 League Cup where they defeated Morecambe Red.

Some girl’s league and cup games were also played, with Kendal United’s under-13s winning 3-0 at Grange United before Kendal’s under-12s team defeated Wattsfield 4-1.

And in the final game Milnthorpe Girls won 2-0 at Dalton’s under-14s in the cup competition.

Those look likely to be the last youth games played for the foreseeable future, with Government advice regarding social contact and mass gatherings leading to games at all levels being suspended until at least next month while the outbreak pans out.
