Avro are in seventh heaven

Avro took their goalscoring tally to 80 for the season and maintained the pressure on leaders Longridge Town with a 7-1 victory over Carlisle City at the Vestacare Stadium.

Despite contending with awful conditions, Avro took the lead inside five minutes thanks to Jack Turnbull. Carlisle responded well and levelled matters on the half hour mark through Marc Shiel, but it mattered little as Avro ran riot in the second half and took a 5-1 lead by the 70th minute, thanks to efforts from Jake Pollard, Ryan Hanson, Duncan Knott and Louis Potts. Further goals from Hanson – who claimed his second of the afternoon – and Mike Stockdale in the space of two minutes added gloss to a wonderful team display. 

Elsewhere, Chadderton came from a goal behind to claim a respectable 1-1 draw against Daisy Hill at the Ark Fleetetech Stadium. Liam Chambers scoring for the hosts.
