1874 NORTHWICH have become the first team to retain the Macron Cup.

A hat-trick from the recently-returned Scott McGowan helped them defeat Runcorn Town in the twice-delayed 2019-20 final, meaning they defend the trophy they won back in 2019.

Callam Gardner and Joe Woolley were also on the scoresheet for 74, whose scoring was completed by an own goal.

Craig Cairns (twice) and Ben Greenop scored for hosts Runcorn, who also had Shaun Weaver sent off for two yellow cards.
