ELLESMERE Port Town, promoted to West Cheshire League's Division One this season, have certainly given a good account of themselves having finished seventh on the table with 14 victories to their credit.

They also reached the Cheshire County FA Amateur Cup semi-finals and with an impending Pyke Cup final with Redgate Rovers, the Port deserve every credit for the progress made.

In midweek, efforts from Chris Forshaw (2), Liam Ashton and Kirk McMurray anchored them to a 4-3 result at relegated West Kirby and on Saturday, they concluded their League campaign with a 5-0 victory at Neston Nomads, confirmed by goals from Jamie Easton (2), Ryan Nicoll, Matt Scott and Forshaw.

Deposed Division One champions, South Liverpool, capitulated 2-0 in midweek to strikes from Mossley Hill Athletic's Tom McNamara and Mike Ferneyhough but atoned at the weekend, when Dylan Sweeney (2) and Mike Nevitt netted in a 3-0 decision over Upton AA.

Despite a goal from Matty Madden, luckless West Kirby finished their season with a 3-1 defeat at Redgate Rovers, Robbie McDonald and Jordan Dilworth scoring for the hosts, while Richmond Raith Rovers ground out a 2-1 win against Hale, courtesy of a goal apiece from Chris Green and Kev Wright.

Best wishes go to Richmond for their LCFA Saturday Challenge Cup Final against Pilkington on May 14.

Sam Wilkie's solitary strike earned Maghull maximum returns from their encounter with Chester Nomads.

In Division Two, South Liverpool Reserves recorded a fifth-place finish following a 10-1 rout of Litherland Remyca Dev.

Curtis Cummins was a four-goal hero, ably assisted by Mike Speed (2), Craig Smith (2), Neil Roach and Francis Evans.

Sam Gainer and Mike Ferneyhough obliged for Mossley Hill Ath. Res. but it was hosts Maghull Res who profited, via a 3-2 scoreline, after they hit back through Sam Lawrenson, Mike Cummins and Jordan Holmes.

Only one game took place in the Youth Division and it was a day to remember for Marshalls U18's Cole Fowlis whose fine hat trick guided his side to a 4-2 triumph at Newton U17'S.

Following an epic tussle which finished 4-4 after extra time, Lower Breck lifted the Youth Division's Jimmy Brain Plate thanks to a 9-8 victory on penalties over Litherland Remyca U17's.

Another competition which was resolved took place on Saturday, and it was celebration time for Litherland U18's who beat Division Three outfit, Burscough Dynamo 3-2 with goals from Bobby Short, Lewis Ware and Chris Walker in an entertaining Development Trophy final.

Jack Cosgrove and Josh Lewis bagged Burscough's consolations.
