Mos­ton Brook put on their top dis­play of the sea­son as they made sec­ond placed Old Stret­for­dians sweat un­til the fi­nal whis­tle af­ter Strets had scored the only goal of the game.

Traf­ford United are sev­eral points adrift of the top two but have vi­tal games in hand but they lost ground as they went down 2-1 in a close and en­gag­ing en­counter with Mil­ton.

It was also close at Dids­bury as they lost out by the odd goal in five to Bury Ams with Ed­die Adby and Ben Heron net­ting for Dids­bury.

It’s tight at the top of di­vi­sion two with three teams locked on 15 points.

Chorl­to­ni­ans sec­onds took ad­van­tage of Mos­ton United hav­ing no game and lead on goal dif­fer­ence adter win­ning a 4-3 thriller at Hoo­ley Bridge Celtic.

Net­ting for Chorlts were Aaron Rodger, Max Steele, Hafiz Hud­son and Jonny Trod­den.

Mellor sec­onds dropped to third spot af­ter los­ing 3-2 to in-form Swin­ton who have now beaten the two top teams in suc­ces­sive weeks.
