MATT Farr has said that standards are rising at Winnington Park because he has more senior players to pick from.

His side won a 14th successive match in South Lancs/Cheshire Division Two last weekend when they recovered from a slow start to beat Heaton Moor.

“The clubhouse is buzzing after games,” said Park’s head coach.

“All of our senior teams are enjoying success in the past few weeks, and players are fighting for places.

“That’s something that we’ve not had for a number of years.”

Winnington host Didsbury Toc-H at Burrows Hill tomorrow, kick-off 2.15pm.

They triumphed in the return in September, and have as their aim a 10th straight win in all competitions in front of their own supporters.

A 36-7 success last weekend against opponents that are third in the table has boosted confidence further.

Farr said: “It was an important game for us to win against one of our rivals for the title.

“We started a little nervously, but once we’d settled we stuck to our game-plan and wore them down.

“Our play in defence was fantastic, and everybody made a contribution.”

Winnington are a single point clear of closest-rivals Liverpool Collegiate, but have two games in hand.

Aspull, currently in fourth position, are a danger too after winning 12 of their 13 league fixtures to date.
