Barrowford Celtic Under 11s Oranges met SC United in their first game of the year at Bullholme.

United started well, gaining a 2-0 lead, but Celtic came storming back to equalise with goals from Alex Muldoon and Archie Macdonald Johnston.

After the break, Celtic came back on a more determined team and further goals from Muldoon, Sam Johnson, Joe Alderman, Macdonald Johnston (2), Alfie Payne, and a last minute goal from man of the match Ryan Haythornthwaite gave Celtic a 9-3 victory.

Colne Under 13s won a seven-goal thriller with Ighten Leigh by the odd goal.

Colne stormed into a two-goal lead within four minutes, thanks to a deflected effort from Levi Hart and a smart finish from Callum Moody.

Colne were pegged back before half-time, but regained the lead with a quick burst of pace and fine finish by Moody, followed by a fourth goal from Ryan Bateman. Harry Mattinson was star man.
