WITH the UK taking a battering from the 'Beast From the East', it was always doubtful that any football would be played in the Chester & Wirral Football League this week.

However, not even the artic blast could deter the phenomenon that is the Monday Night and Friday Night Flexi 11s.

In the Monday Night Flexi 11s, just before the big freeze took hold, Newton Athletic entertained Cestrian Legends at Blacon High 3G, coming away with all three points after a well-earned 5-1 victory.

The win sees Newton regain top spot from AFC Chester by a point with only three games left to play.

Over in the Ellesmere Port Division, TRIC moved top after a hard fought 1-0 win over West Kirby Utd.

In the night's other game Ship Argyle cruised past Hoole Youth 7-2, keeping them in fourth place.

Despite the worst that the weather could throw at us the CWFL Friday Night Flexi 11s still had a full program of football being played.

Six fixtures covering four venues and two divisions could not be stopped thanks to the tremendous efforts of all the staff at Blacon High 3G, UCEA 3G, Vauxhalls 3G and Woodchurch 3G and the determination of all the players to get a game of football in.

In the Ellesmere Port Division Rob Shenton, Tom Miller and Tom Chamberlain were all on target for Travs as they beat M&S Bank 3-0 to stay second.

Steve Abbott hit a brace for leaders River Juniors FC as they beat a resilient CBP 2-0.

Gregor Campbell (3), Lawrence Crowther and Vitor Rigoni Ferrighetto were the marksmen for Waverton FC as they beat Chester Lions 5-0.

The result of the night was for North West Brom who recorded their first points of the season with a 4-0 win over El Porto.

The Brom have been promising to deliver this performance for the past few weeks now as the young side from Ellesmere Port start to get to grips with the hustle and bustle of this fast paced format of 11 v 11.

Connor Smith lead the scoring with three, followed by a solo effort from Joe Tulleth.

Over at Woodchurch, newcomers Sporting Sedgeley enjoyed a winning start to their campaign with a 4-2 win over AC Hoylake and Wirral Allstars extended their lead at the top, beating Shaftesbury Youth 3-1.
