Com­plet­ing a great es­cape

Stockport Times East - - SPORT -

THE L and C’s in­ter­league team staged a great es­cape as they kept up their hopes of reach­ing the next stage of the Jeff Wal­ton Me­mo­rial Tro­phy.

Trail­ing the West Lancs League 4-0 af­ter 55 min­utes, they saw Sean Chap­pell (AFC Old­ham) pull a goal back be­fore team­mate Cal­lum Franklin made it 4-2.

Old Ash­to­ni­ans’ James Mo­ran set up a nerve-jan­gling fin­ish with a third on 85 min­utes be­fore, in the first minute of added time, AFC Old­ham’s Dom Hal­lam lev­elled the scores and took his side to the top of their group.

They can now look for­ward to a semi-fi­nal tie against prob­a­bly the Manch­ester League or the Cheshire League.

In the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion, Whalley Range moved to within a point of lead­ers Rochdalians – and with a game in hand – af­ter beat­ing Castle­ton 6-2.

Bedians saw off Mos­ton Brook 4-2, AFC Old­ham beat Chorl­to­ni­ans 3-1, while New­ton lost 1-0 to Parrs Wood Celtic.

High Lane were 6-2 win­ners over Chorl­to­ni­ans in di­vi­sion two, where Ard­wick beat Old Strets 7-4 and Mel­lor had a 3-1 win over Spur­ley Hey.

Parrs Wood Celtic head di­vi­sion three af­ter de­feat­ing Heaton Mersey 3-1, though Deans FC beat Chea­dle Hulme Villa by the same score and Hooley Bridge Celtic won 7-1 at Droylsden JFC.

Old­ham Vics reached the next round of the Wray Cup with a 2-1 win over Ea­gle.

Di­vi­sion A lead­ers Sal­ford Vics beat near­est chal­lengers Old Strets 4-1, while New­ton were held 2-2 by AFC Old­ham.

Al­der­mere are eight points clear in di­vi­sion B af­ter win­ning 3-0 at AFC Old­ham, keep­ing them ahead of Sal­ford Vics af­ter their 5-2 victory at Bur­nage Metro.
