MARK Faddis and Derrick Edwards were crowned the Mid Cheshire League’s latest Alliance Pairs champions at Wharton Cons on Thursday.
The Riley’s duo overcame Pockets’ pair Billy Hopkins and Paul Hatherley in a tense final.
In the Premier Division, long-time leaders Owley Wood A’s advantage is worth a slender eight points after they lost at Castle Private A.
Closest rivals Pockets C won at Middlewich Legion B, where Stewart Colclough defeated his dad in their head-to-head.
Elsewhere, there were wins for champions Middlewich Legion D against Riley’s and Legion A at Winsford Cons A’s expense.
Pockets A were whitewashed by Winnington C in Division One and look resigned to relegation, while leaders Castle Private B proved too strong for guests Cygnet.
Wharton Cons B sent Victoria B into the Division Two drop zone after winning their battle, while in Division Three Wharton Cons C secured promotion by beating Castle Private D.
