In the NPL First Division North, Jamie Milligan scored twice as Brig eased to a 3-0 win at Scarborough Athletic.

Chris Marlowe put Bamber Bridge in front in the 26th minute on the east coast.

And Milligan doubled their advantage after the break from the penalty spot.

Milligan scored his second – and Brig’s third – 12 minutes from time to complete a satisfying away day for manager Neil Crowe.

Elswhere in the division, Lancaster City ran out 1-0 winners at home to Harrogate Railway Athletic.

Tom Kilifin got the 71st-minute winner for the Dolly Blues.

Burscough went down 3-2 at home to Witton Albion.

Will Jones (27) and Liam Rice (86) got the Linnets’ goals but Callum Hassan (31), Jamie Matthews (62) and Robert Hopley (85) netted for Albion.

Kendal Town’s game at Radcliffe Borough and Clitheroe’s trip to Trafford both fell victim to the weather.

Danny Rowe’s 50th goal for AFC Fylde secured a comfortable 2-0 victory away to Gainsborough Trinity in the National League North.

Sam Finley opened the scoring for the Coasters when he poked home from a first-half corner, before Rowe rifled in a stunning second to seal the points.

Solihull Moors’ defeat by North Ferriby United saw Dave Challinor’s men close the gap at the top of the table to just four points.

Southport managed to hold off a sustained attack by high-scoring Bromley to earn a goalless National League draw in Kent.

The home side had numerous chances in the first half but never managed to convert them.

And when substitute Alex Fox finally put the ball in the net late in the second half he was ruled offside by the officials.

Jamie Allen and Louis Almond went closest for Southport but Josh Thompson was the hero of their afternoon, when his tackle saved a certain goal near the end.

Since early November, when Dino Maamria took over as manager, the Sandgrounders have lost only one game out of 11, rising from 22nd to 14th place in the table.

Next Saturday, they have a tough task when they travel to fourth-placed Dover for the second round tie in the FA Trophy.
