Hurlston win title after beating Ather

Home team dominate with six goal windfall

Hurlston Hall - Team Captain Kevin Clarke shows off the league trophy.

Hurlston Hall put Atherleigh Athletic to the sword to lift the Wigan & District Division Three title.

Atherleigh had a strong wind advantage in the first half and made it count when a cleared ball found itself looping over Hurlston's goalie Eddy Smith and into the net.

The home team were dominating though and it wasn’t long before Dennis Lartey equalised just before half time.

The wind proved just as strong in the second half and Hurlston took full advantage with goals from Andy Clark, Robbie Knowles, Carl Webb, Dave Oxton (2) and Mark Forster with a bullet header.
