The promotion races are hotting up in both NWCFL divisions.

Premier League
`
1. Maine Road - P: 35, 71 Pts
2. Linnets - P: 31, 70 Pts
3. Norton Utd - P:29, 69 Pts

I'd say this is a two horse race between Runcorn and Norton. I'd like to see Runcorn be promoted, but this is going down to the wire!


Division One

1. Nelson - P: 29, 68 Pts
2. Formby - P: 26, 59 Pts
3. Northwich - P: 25, 55 Pts
4. Atherton Colls - P: 27, 54 Pys
5. Hanley - P: 23, 49 Pts

All 5 are still in with a shout of promotion. I think Nelson will without a doubt win the league, leaving the 2nd spot up for grabs. Formby are very strong team and are in with the best shot of getting 2nd. After todays win for 1874 we're gaining momentum every game, whilst Colliers will look to get revenge on us 2 weeks today. Hanley however, are quietly chugging along, and certainly are still in the race.

No team can afford a slip up, and with a lot of top 5 v top 5 team games coming up, things are really getting interesting.

Thoughts?

Agreed on both counts. Can't see Norton passing the ground grading requirement. And if they fail that, and win league, second placed team gets promotion.

No, that team folded. Runcorn Linnets were the team that formed in the wake of that folding, but they are not the same club. Runcorn Town have probably also applied.

Cant see Norton having applied for Promotion without having plans to be able to do the necessary work to be able to go up.

I think they will nick it.

not changed my mind from a couple of weeks ago,
linnets to win the prem, nelson the first, with Formby hot favs to finish second,
I think 1874 will just miss out this season but I expect with the experience of this season that they will go all the way next season, tremendous support as well.
just a word for chadderton and holker, what a great game today considering the conditions.

I have to agree that we'll miss out this season, and purely because win only managed one win in the first 5 or 6 games - which isn't surprising for a completely brand new squad.

Massive win for 1874 over Hanley last night, keeps us in the hunt. Need formby to have a slip up.

We're now in a position where if we win all of out games we go up. That'll be tough!

Formby away on the 19th, that'll be a HUGE game.
