Runcorn Linnets v St Helens Town
A win for Linnets as expected from my preview, but not as easy as I or many would have imagined. A 1-0 win sees Linnets pick up their 18th league win of the season despite playing much of the match with 10 men.
Colne v Glossop North End
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who expected a tight game in what was undoubtedly game of the day. Glossop had other ideas however and ran out 6-0 winners showing their class and why they are title favourites along with Linnets.
1874 Northwich v Nelson
Nelson spoilt the party as they came away with a well earnt point at The Barton Stadium, on the day 1874 celebrated their 2nd birthday. Both promoted teams settling into life in the NWCFL Premier division well.
Bacup & Rossendale Borough v Runcorn Town
Atherton Collieries made it 13 wins from 13 with a 6-1 win over Rochdale Town, Hanley lose 4-2 to Northwich Flixton Villa and Remyca share the spoils with Daisy Hill after a 3-3 thriller.
A bumper crowd of 350 saw AFC Darwen beat Atherton LR 3-1, while bottom of the table Oldham Boro were 3-2 winners at Ashton Town. Widnes were 6-0 winners at Eccleshall and Chadderton win 6-1 at Wigan Robin Park.
