A haphazard start to the season has seen very few games played this term. However, here is a round-up of the performances of what has gone on so far this season.
County and Fylde are joint league-leaders following their impressive start to the campaign with two wins from two games. County marginally head the table on goal difference after a thumping 7-0 victory last week against a helpless Bowland side. County had started the season by cruising to victory against a Lonsdale side that appear to be struggling for form going into the new season.
Fylde are yet to concede a goal this season with impressive performances against Cartmel and Furness, running out 4-0 and 5-0 winners respectively. With such a goal-scoring threat, and a rock solid defence it certainly looks as though Fylde will be in contention to challenge for the title again.
Grizedale currently lie third in the league, despite only playing one game due to the rain-sodden pitches. A 2-2 draw against Lonsdale saw them surrender a two-goal advantage before seeing a controversial decision ruling out an all important winner.
Pendle sit fourth in the league following a point against Furness. A late penalty ensured they salvaged a point in a game that saw both teams make their first appearances of the season.
Lonsdale are 5th after playing two games and managing a point. A negative goal difference will need to be turned around for them to make an impression on this year’s league but they have shown glimpses of their talent.
Furness are next having conceded one more goal than Lonsdale but will consider themselves unlucky not to have sewn up the game against Pendle in which they will view as two points dropped rather than a point gained.
Cartmel are second-bottom following their disappointing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Fylde but will hope to build an impressive run of form to build on last year’s position.
Furness are bottom due to their seven goal deficit that will take time to be overturned. However, with so many games to go it would be daft to write off anybody’s chances of success this season.
