Skelmersdale 1 AFC Fylde 1

Fylde travelled to Skelmersdale United for their penultimate pre-season friendly in good spirits having won three of their six pre-season fixtures, looking to add a fourth to that list.

However, a first half strike from a Skelmersdale midfielder on 34 minutes saw the Coasters trail at half-time.

It took an 82nd minute goal from Dion Charles – his fourth of pre-season – to bring the score level which meant Fylde picked up their third draw of pre-season.

Fylde will feel they could have won the game but with just one week to go until the start of the National North season, the Coasters squad is starting to take shape. The final pre-season game is on Tuesday evening at Kellamergh Park against Blackburn Rovers.
