THE top game in division two saw The Black dig in deep against AM Plant Hire to secure a valuable 1-0 victory, taking them within one point of leaders Rockpark FC.
Down to ten men due to an early dismissal, The Black had to thank their excellent defence for maintaining their one-goal lead, given to them on the hour mark by ever-reliable Stuart Speed, and inflicting a first defeat upon the home team.
Up into third spot are The Rakers as they rolled over Vineyard in a 7-2 success that saw Kyle Wright and Jordan Cartwright net for the losers.

Heswall Athletic took the sting out of Wirral Scorpions (Calum Mason) with a 7-1 success due to a Rob Horgan foursome, allied to efforts from Ben Cullen, Will Venables and Matty Keogh.
Despite Andy Battersby and James Wainwright scoring for Rossway United, they went down 4-2 against New Brighton Youth, who had Rhys Wynne, Carl Cavanagh and Joe Jones as their marksmen.

Bagging a superb treble in reply was John Davies.
