FOUR new clubs were admitted to the Mid Cheshire Sunday League at the annual meeting.
Knights Grange-based Northwich outfit Blue Barrel; Forest Road (Moss Farm), JWs (Winnington Avenue) and Sandbach side Rookery Tavern, whose venue will be Sutton Lane, Middlewich, were voted into the Second Division.
Their entry could mark a halt in the decline of the Sunday game.
Numbers have slipped slowly over the past 20 years and only 30 teams completed last season.
But 33 teams - 10 in the Premier, 11 in the First and 12 in the Second - will start the 2007-08 campaign.
League president Ralph Hewitt presented the annual awards.
Plough won the Club Linesman of the Year Trophy and Terry Wheeler, of Red Lion Supporters, collected the Secretary of the Year award.
Fair play winners were Lion Moulton, who did not have a single player either booked or sent off in the whole of the season.
The new season opens on September 2.
