Danny Morris bagged a hat-trick to help Poulton defeat Vickerstown 4-2 in the premier division of the West Lancashire Football League.

Poulton had to come from behind to earn the three points against the top-flight strugglers, who took the lead after just five minutes through Jackson Round.

But the visitors produced an instant response, Morris notching the first of his three goals barely a minute later to level things up again.

Josh Few then found the back of the net just two minutes later to give Poulton a 2-1 lead only for Kyle Delves to level for the home side 10 minutes before the interval.

But the second half belonged to Poulton and Morris in particular, as he ran in another two goals to make sure of a victory which lifts his side into seventh place.

There was disappointment for Blackpool Wren Rovers as they slipped to a narrow defeat at home to Turton.

Simon Whaley scored the decisive goal 10 minutes from time as Turton snatched a late 1-0 victory, which sees Wren Rovers slip down to 13th.

Both Lytham Town and Thornton Cleveleys saw their fixtures fall foul of frozen pitches.

Wyre Villa’s trip to Croston Sports Club in the First Division was also postponed.
