The Blackpool Fylde and Wyre School Cup for Year 10 is under way and the first round encounter between St Mary’s and Millfield was the schools’ first meeting for many a year.

Both sides played some fine football and although DJ De La Cruz gave host school St Mary’s a lead which they held until half-time, Millfield hit back strongly in the second half to secure a 3-1 win as Conor Thompson scored twice and Sam Cross netted the other.

They will face St George’s in the second round.
