Bamber Bridge’s stuttering season continued on Saturday as they were well beaten by lowly Radcliffe Borough 3-1 at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium on Saturday.

Despite dominating the first half, Neil Crowe’s men fell behind after 28 minutes courtesy of a calamitous mix-up in defence.

Stuart Vasey missed a great chance five minutes later and that was compounded in the second half as Boro scored twice in the first 15 minutes.

Vasey pulled a goal back six minutes from time, but it was too little too late for the hosts.

Meanwhile, Solihull Moors leapfrogged AFC Fylde in the National League North table after a 2-1 victory in torrential rain at Kellamergh Park.

Former Premier League striker Stefan Moore opened the scoring from the penalty spot, before Dion Charles scrambled home an equaliser.

Darryl Knight put Solihull back into the lead early in the second half and the Coasters wasted the perfect opportunity to level the scores when Danny Rowe saw a spot-kick of his own saved by Ben Seagrist.

Southport’s dramatic revival under new manager Dino Maamria continued when they defeated Bromley5-3 at home on Saturday.

Captain Andy Wright headed in Adam Blakeman’s free kick after 20 minutes but Lee Marshall put the visitors level 17 minutes later and they went ahead on the stroke of the interval with a goal from Rob Swaine only for Gary Jones to score on a one-on-one in first half stoppage time.

Two minutes after the restart, Mike Phenix finished off a brilliant four-man move to make it 3-2 and Lewis Almond added a fourth from the penalty spot.

Jamie Allen then ran through the defence to slide the ball between a narrow gap into the corner to make it 5-2.

Substitute Sean Francis scored a consolation goal for Bromley in the 78th minute but the result was never in doubt as Southport moved five poiunts clear of the relegation zone.
