FOLLOWING a 3-1 victory at Ellesmere Port Town in midweek Newton, the West Cheshire League's newly crowned Division One champions settled for a share of the spoils on Saturday, after they finished 3-3 with Chester Nomads.

Worthy runners-up Rainhill Town had two-goal Craig Jones on the mark but were upstaged by relegation-threatened Neston Nomads, who posted a 3-2 win courtesy of replies from Callum Blondel, Paul Ellison and Lewis Clark.

That result may see the South Wirral outfit avoid the drop after second to bottom Marshalls went down 3-2 at Richmond Raith Rovers, despite beating the same opposition 4-1 in midweek.

Wayne Smith (2) and Joel Richardson obliged for Maghull in a 3-1 victory over Hale while Josh Clayton (3), Nathan Mapletoft and Lee Guiardo found the net as Upton AA romped home 5-1 against relegated West Kirby.

South Liverpool were indebted to efforts from Cam Dalton, Joel Douglas, Sharif Yusuf, Peter McShane and Alex Woodcock, which set up a 5-3 win against Ellesmere Port Town, Phil Quilliam (2) and Kevin Fields netting for the visitors.

The Division Two championship was also decided on Saturday when leaders Page Celtic came from behind twice at Mallaby and following an epic contest recorded a 4-3 decision, Andy Oldham settling the issue in the 92nd minute.

Third-placed Heswall beat Ashville Res 4-2 in midweek, and can pip Capenhurst Villa for the second promotion spot, provided they can win their remaining games against Wirral SB and South Liverpool Res.

In Division Three, Capenhurst's reserve side had Mike Mitchell and Carl Welsbury on target in their 2-1 eclipse of Heswall Res.

Doubles from Liam Van Gelder and Amen Fakhr anchored South Sefton Borough Res to a 9-2 rout of Ellesmere Port Town Res, while respective marksmen in Marshalls Res' 3-3 stalemate with Poulton Royal were Shaun Smith (2), Stevie Teare, John Pomphrett (2) and Jay Thompson.

Finalists for the Development Trophy were decided after Dillon Bousique-Green's hat trick inspired Burscough Dynamo to a 4-2 result over Maghull Youth and efforts from Peter Silcock, Sean Walker and Bobby Short secured Litherland Remyca Youth's 3-1 win over Vauxhall Motors Youth.
