Iain Swan’s Garstang picked up their first West Lancashire Premier Division win of the season of Saturday.

It’s took until the eighth game of the season for the Riversiders to pick up their first three-point haul of the campaign, a 3-0 victory at home to Fleetwood Hesketh.

A game that was also Swan’s side’s first home match of the campaign, as work has been undertaken on their Riverside home, was in the balance until 15 minutes from time.

Ryan Dodd broke the deadlock with goals from Gary Fawcett and Andre Matichecchia completing the win.

Slyne-with-Hest’s solid start continued on Saturday with a 1-1 draw at Crooklands Casuals.

Luke Ogley was on target for the visitors who sit fourth in the table having played seven matches so far this season.

This Saturday, September 13, both sides are in Lancashire FA Amateur Shield first round action.

Slyne travel to West Lancashire Premier Division leaders Blackpool Wren Rovers while Garstang visit Croston Sports.
