LINK-Sport Thornton Cleveleys Leapfrog Fleetwood to take Top Spot! Thornton Cleveleys FC moved into top spot of the Sports 360 West Lancashire League Division 1 with another goal fest at New Bourne Park. Croston were the visitors on a very cold day in December but goals from Frankland, Bailey, Smith, Warwick, and Perkes only added to Croston misery. Manager John Mendonca was full of praise for his squad which has been dogged by a number of injuries of late. TCFCs game on the 19th fell foul to the weather and we had to wait until January 2nd to welcome visitors Fleetwood Hesketh Bank. After a treacherous journey from Southport the visitors found themselves 2-0 down in the first half and then the 3rd killed the game off before a late reply made the score line more respectable Pete Borrowdale grabbed a double with Paul Bailey getting on the score sheet as well. This was TCFCs 5th win on the trot and it catapulted them to the top of the table. An away win on Jan 24th saw them maintain their lofty position winning 1 -3 against local rivals Norcross and Warbreck with Frankland, Smith and that man Bailey on the score sheet again “The place is buzzing at the moment” said manager John Mendonca “The lads are playing very good football its nice on the eye and I’m delighted to see more and more supporters come down on match day despite the weather to support the team”
