Bucks top 20

Bootle's 5-0 win at Charnock Richard on Saturday was their 20th successive league win, in a run stretching back to mid-November.

With City of Liverpool dropping points at Whitchurch Alport, the Bucks are now just three points behind their table topping tenants with three games to play.

The Easter Monday clash between the two teams at the TDP Solictors Stadium is shaping up to be a game not to be missed.

Cup final prize for Vics

After coming so agonisingly close to clinching a place in the final of the FA Vase, there was some cup consolation for Northwich Victoria on Thursday, as they moved into the final of the Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup with a 2-0 win over local rivals 1874 Northwich.

A game against fellow Premier Division side Winsford United now awaits, giving Steve Wilkes's men the chance to end a memorable season by picking up some silverware.

More sharp shooting from Rob

Not for the first time this season, Carlisle City's Rob McCartney turned in a match winning performance in his side's 5-4 win over Ashton Town on Tuesday night.

Rob scored a hat trick in the game, making it the fifth time this season he has scored three or more goals in a game for City.

He has scored four in a game on three occasions, and Wednesday was the second time he has bagged three in a game.

With 37 goals to his name, it's been a fine season for the City striker.

High five for Rangers

One of the eye catching results on Saturday was the 5-4 win by Ellesmere Rangers at Wythenshawe Town.

Rangers have only scored more than two goals in a game on one occasion this season, and it is the first time they have scored five times.

If Rangers had lost they would have been confirmed as finishing in a relegation position but they still have a chance of beating the drop after their impressive win.

Strong finish from Breck

Lower Breck's 3-0 defeat of Longridge Town was the latest in an impressive run of results from Breck in recent weeks.

It was the first time that table topping Town had lost since Boxing Day, and it's now just one defeat in the last ten games for Gary Moore's men who are shaping up well for a top four finish - not a bad first season in our league.
