Division Three’s top team Farnworth Social Circle C had a 24 – 7 win against Irlam Steel with nines from Ben Wyatt and Chris Lord. Sadly we are informed that this will be Irlam’s last season as some players are moving away and they may also struggle with the last couple of matches of this season. We wish them well in the future. They have been a real asset to the league and a team which have been very enjoyable to play against. Second-placed Meadow Hill A triumphed over Ladybridge C 23 – 8 assisted by nine from John Nuttall.
