up on Pitch B was FC Fylde A versus Cracow United.
Both teams were looking for their first goal
and first points of the day. Although time was
on their side at this stage they would want
to break the goal duck and the points duck sooner
rather than later.
was not much between the teams in the first
half and, in fact, it would be a solitary strike
that would divide the teams going into half-time.
That strike came from Nathanial Smithies – for
Fylde FC A – and it was the English team who
lead at half-time.
1-0 the game was delicately poised and the second
goal in this game was always likely to be crucial
in the destination of the points. Should Cracow
United get it then it was game on but should
FC Fylde A manage to claim it they would be
well on course victory.
the end the second goal never came along and
FC Fylde A and their goalkeeper Jonny Schofield
kept their first clean sheet of the day. The
three points saw them climb from 5 th to 3 rd
position in the table.
United could still qualify for the Cup despite
two defeats but they would now need to win their
final 3 games.
