Cartmel pushed all the way

IN the Fisher/Howson Remembrance Cup semi-finals, Cartmel Reserves, winners of the competition for the past two seasons, won their way through to this season’s final.

They were pushed all the way by Boys’ Club Reserves, a division below.

The game was close for long periods but it was Cartmel who posed more of a threat when attacking.

Two goals for Cartmel from Will Anderson and Nathan Bushell were just enough to win the game and put them into another final.

Marsh United Reserves from Division One entertained Division Two leaders Carnforth Rangers Reserves in an end-to-end game in the other semi final.

Both defences were well on top throughout the 90 minutes, restricting both sides to long range efforts which were easily dealt with.

The only goal of the game actually came from the penalty spot, converted by Lee Stewart for Marsh United. The final of this will be played on Monday, April 30.

In the Premier Division the fight to avoid relegation hots up every week.

Not long ago Arnside looked dead certainties to go down with Swarthmoor, but recent results have gone in favour of Arnside.

Of the six games played on Saturday five ended incredibly in draws, the only winners were Arnside who deservedly beat fifth placed Marsh United 2-0, Adam Richardson and James Thornton scored the goals.

This win moves Arnside up two places and away from the relegation area.
