OLDERSHAW will be staging two special matches at Belvidere this Saturday as they head to the close of their 90th anniversary season.

Cheshire President Martin Wroe is putting together two sides.

The first of them Wirral Legends will take on an Oldershaw over 35's side with a 1pm kick-off.

Then a Cheshire Presidents XV selected from around the Wirral will play the Oldershaw first team which will be strengthened by former Oldershaw players now attached to other clubs. This match will start at 3pm.

The Presidents squad includes Paul Lewis and Keith Mahon from Wirral, Dave Hall and Gareth Jones from Birkenhead Park and Stu Gratton, Luke Thompson, Vinny Dutton and Sean Ellis from New Brighton.

The President will conclude the proceedings by opening the newly-refurbished Social Space at Belvidere funded by an RFU grant and Oldershaw themselves.

Most local clubs have now completed their league programmes but there are some games outstanding. Caldy have an attractive home match against Hull Ionians in National Two North on Saturday.

Ionians travel to Paton Field knowing they must win to ensure the title. Any mistake would let in Ampthil and District who are currently three points behind them..

Hoylake have a re-arranged league clash against Douglas.

Meanwhile last Saturday Hoylake virtually secured their South Lancashire/Cheshire One status with a losing bonus point against Winnington Park at Carham Road.

They are now level on points second bottom with Manchester Medics who have a worse points differential and barring a catastrophe against Douglas have just just achieved survival.

Hoylake started well against Winnington and led 10-0 thanks to tries via Matt O'Neill and Guy Byatt plus both conversions by Joe Lavin.

Winnington landed a penalty before the break and then three tries and a conversion put them 22-14 to the good. But then Park threw Hoylake a lifeline as they offended near their own 22 and Lavin popped over the all important kick to close the gap to five points.

Anselmians in their last outing enjoyed a 42-32 win over visiting Northwich.

Caldy in National Two North were beaten 14-24 at Preston Grasshoppers and drop to sixth in the division.

Wirral in National Three North closed with a sound 22-14 success at Rossendale and take tenth place in the table.

Birkenhead Park rounded off a promotion season in North One West with an excellent 48-15 win over Kendal to thrill the many past players who attended a re-union.

Jack Lavin crossed three times for Park and there were also tries via Peter Doolan, Matt Ibbotson, Dave Hall, Matt Walls and Rob Doolan. Hall converted four times.

Kendal managed two touch downs, one conversion and a penalty.

League officials were present at the Uper Park to hand over the Championship Cup to Park.

New Brighton went down 19-34 at Wilmslow and finish second bottom Scores in South Lancashire/Cheshire Two included Ormskirk 50,Prenton 22 and Southport 75, Port Sunlight 5 but both local clubs avoid a bottom two finish.

In Division Three Ellesmere Port clinched the title with a 48-7 hammering of Oldershaw.

Oxton Parkonians were also on the receiving end 14-71 at Congleton.

Wallasey did not have a fixture.
