Blackpool Exit Lancashire Senior Cup

Youthful Seasiders Lose Out To Fleetwood

25 October 2017

A youthful Blackpool side exited the Lancashire Senior Cup after a 3-0 defeat away to Fleetwood Town this afternoon.

The Seasiders, fielding a host of under-18s, fell behind after just a minute of play, when Ashley Nadesan dispossossed goalkeeper Craig Thordarson to tee up Ash Hunter. 

The hosts, who had former Blackpool left-back Luke Higham in their side, doubled their advantage early in the second-half, after Wes Burns found Hunter to curl in his second of the game. 

The Cod Army then wrapped the game up in the 75th minute when Thordarson was unable to clear a Jack Sowerby corner away from his goal.

Blackpool Team: Thordarson, Jacobson, Williams (Graham), Newton, Avon, Flynn (Wainwright), Sinclair-Smith, Sumner, Watkinson (Dunne), Roache, Shaw

Subs Not Used: Simpson, Maddox
