WINSFORD Saxons, the defending champions, are hoping Terry Cain’s late winner against Clock Tower on Saturday can kick-start their campaign.

His second goal of the afternoon was decisive in a 3-2 victory.

Kane Ode also netted for the home team, while Shaun Bradley and Jack Pattern replied for the newcomers.

Barnton Wanderers share the lead in a race for the title after prevailing at Winsford United’s reserves, although their goal-difference is better than Sandbach Curshaws.

Over 3 Grange recorded a third successive win when they brushed aside Sandbach Town.

Zak Finnigan, twice, Joe Standish and Brandon Icely were on target.

Winnington 1994 overturned an interval deficit at Mary Dendy, where Buba Drammeh, Nick Newman and Aaron Gee were on the scoresheet in a 3-1 victory.

Witton Albion’s reserves were among the goals for a second successive Saturday, this time putting seven past back-markers Winnington Avenue.
