THE Chester & District Sunday League brought the curtain down on its 50th year by holding its annual presentation evening.

Players, managers and league officials gathered at Chester Boughton Hall Cricket Club for the prize-giving night, hosted by league secretary Trevor Jones.

Pride of place went to Vicars Cross Dynamos, who celebrated becoming champions after 10 seasons in the league.

As well as taking the Concorde Trophies Section A title, they also won the District FA Cup, beating Malpas in the final at the Exacta Stadium, and narrowly missed out on a treble when losing the Sunday League Cup final to Corner Pin.

Runners-up in Section A were Saltney Social Club.

Alan Moore, representing new sponsors Abbey Taxis, presented the Section B awards.

Champions Frodsham Athletic enjoyed a tremendous first season in the league with a 100% record of 20 wins from 20 matches, as well as winning the Bill Gresty Memorial Trophy.

Runners-up in Section B were stalwarts, Dee Rangers, the longest serving club in the league having started as Stonebridge in the early 1970s, then becoming New Inn.

Dee Rangers also took the Giantkillers Trophy, awarded to the Section B club which progresses furthest in the League Cup.

Player of the season in Section A was goalkeeper Chris Rixham of FC Bull & Stirrup, while the Section B award went to Stuart Magee of Frodsham Athletic.

The league committee thanked sponsors Concorde Trophies, Abbey Taxis, Stephen Hughes Aerials and Dale Recycling Solutions for their support.

The league’s AGM will be held on Thursday, June 20 at the Cheshire County Sports Club.
