AS a result of Sunday's 7-0 demolition of Gunners Enterprise, Holiday Inn Ellesmere Port League Premier Division leaders and reigning champions Castrol Tessuti put five points between themselves and nearest rivals Octel AFC.

Veteran campaigner Tony Livens is enjoying a new lease of life at The Bull, his four-goal salvo tipping the balance in a 6-5 result over battling CCU, who had brothers Lee and Kevin Roberts among the goals. Tony McGill obliged with the only goal as MSC Eastham Rake beat The Phoenix while Sean Done and Scott Rowley produced the goods as The Sutton Way won 2-1 at LPSC Strawberry.
Identical point and goal differences mean there's nothing between Ellesmere and Princes Rovers at the top of Division two.
