West Cheshire League round-up
HESWALL assumed pole position in the Carlsberg West Cheshire League's Division One, following back to back victories over Vauxhall Motors Reserves and previous leaders Chester Nomads.
The 2005 champions maintained their 100% after Robbie Foulkes bagged the game's only goal against the Motormen in midweek and then posted a 2-0 win over Nomads at the weekend, with goals from Matty Johnson and Rob Abelwhite.
After a sluggish start to the season, second-placed Newton continued on an upward spiral and celebrated their fourth win from five starts when efforts from Gerrard King and Jerome McIntyre secured a fine 2-1 result at Southport Trinity.
A smart double from Andy Winslade anchored Vauxhall Motors to a 2-1 win at Blacon YC, while fifth placed Marine Reserves stayed in contention after Karl Berquist (2), Paul Pearson, Phil Ferguson and John Connolly netted in Saturday's 5-3 eclipse of reigning champions Ashville.
Mike McGraa and Stewey Jackson were the marksmen as West Kirby accounted for Maghull 2-1.
A Nathan Mapletoft hat-trick was supplemented by further efforts from Simon Andrews (2) and Sam Smallwood as Upton AA beat Hale 6-2, but there was no joy for Chester rivals Christleton, who fell victim to a solitary effort from Ellesmere Port's Chris Nicholl.
Elsewhere, goals from Mossley Hill Ath.'s Yusuf Malik, Ryan Powell and Kurt Sherlock were negated by replies from Cammell Laird Reserves' Jon Strange, Craig Cairns and Jon Paul Wheadon in Friday's 3-3 stalemate.
Division Two leaders South Liverpool kept two points clear of the chasing pack and boasted a man of the match performance from Cameron Alton who struck four times in the 5-2 verdict over Capenhurst Villa.
Chris Nation was another four-goal hero who shone for Maghull Reserves in their 8-1 rout of West Kirby Reserves.
Two goals from Paul Linwood and an Owen Davies effort assured second placed challengers Heswall Reserves of a 3-2 triumph at Bebington Athletic while Mallaby climbed to third place courtesy of a 3-0 victory over Mossley Hill Athletic Reserves. Jordan Costello, Anthony Price and Jonathan Wilkinson were the scorers.
Robbie Madine, Anthony Lee, Dom Gilchrist, Ryan Miller and Ryan Perry all made the score sheet as Richmond Raith Rovers recorded their first win of the season after beating Willaston 5-3.
Three-goal Ian Cox took the plaudits as Helsby humbled Mersey Royal 5-1 and a two goal blast from Ashley Robinson helped Ashville Reserves to a 2-2 draw with Marshalls who hit back through Danny Connor and Matt Powell.
In another real end-to-ender, Manor Athletic finished 3-3 with Prescot Cables Reserves.
South Liverpool's second string won 4-1 at Capenhurst Villa Reserves inspired by a Neill Roach double, and that result enabled them to dislodge Redgate Rovers from top spot in Division Three.
Redgate were second best at Manor Athletic Reserves who romped home 4-1 with efforts from Anthony McCarthy (2), Dom Crossley and Kieran Hughes.
But despite goals from John Ferguson, Tom Norton, Robbie Gittens and John McAllister, Merseyside Police were trumped by the efforts of four goal Alex Clare, who left his mark as Neston Nomads won 5-4.
On target for Marshalls Reserves in their 4-1 result over Ellesmere Port Reserves were Rabbi Alexanre, Kadeem Mekki, Lucas Porquet-Molina and Ali Asgari while Christleton Reserves' 5-2 triumph at Belfry featured strikes from John Pomphrett (2), Elliot Corridon, Kalumbo Mwande and an own-goal. Mike McAllum and Ryan Trousdale were on target for Chester Nomads Reserves who won 2-1 at Widnes Town.
Saturday's Youth Division action saw Bootle beat Custys 2-1 with goals from Robbie Rowlands and Grant Pruden and it was celebration time for Vauxhall Motors Youth after Josh Quarless and Jack Roberts found the net in Saturday's 2-0 win at Gateacre.
