Making the trip across the Irish Sea, they returned with their 100pc record intact. The home side, however, were the better team for the opening 15 minutes with a Colm O'Callaghan goal helping them into a five-point lead.

Fermanagh, however, are a team on a mission and they dug deep to claw their way back with a 17th-minute Ciaran Corrigan goal putting them back on level terms.

From that point on they were the better team and always held a cushion with Kevin McGarry and John Duffy pointing the way.

Lancashire did hit two second-half goals through Alan Morrissey and Kelvin Magee, but it was not enough as Duffy's wonder strike, after a searing run from his own defence, sealed the win.
