Catforth and District Summer League, Division Two
Hambleton Spartans 8 Fulwood Park Rangers 0 (att 33)
More summer league football as I slowly tick off the handful of new venues in this year's local "off-season" competitions.
Hambleton Spartans have made a storming start to the Catforth League's lower division, and had no problems seeing off Fulwood Park Rangers, scoring four goals in each half.
I was told that many of the Hambleton players turn out for a nearby West Lancashire team during the winter, and the speed and quality of much of their football suggested that could be the case. Fulwood Park Rangers are a Sunday side during the winter.
Hambleton are using a pitch on the tree-lined village recreation ground, and on a warm and sunny evening it was a good place to watch a game, with a good-sized crowd for this level of football, including a handful of fellow groundhoppers who provided good company.
