THE final game of the season involving Carlsberg West Cheshire League clubs is scheduled for tomorrow evening at Prenton Park.
Strongly fancied Cammell Laird are set to lock horns with Heswall in what is sure to be a keenly contested Wirral FA Senior Cup final (7pm kick off).
The last time the two sides met in a final was last season's Cheshire FA Amateur Cup final, which was something of a no-contest with Lairds winning 4-0, all four goals being scored in the first half, but this time around the scoreline promises to be closer.
That victory made Lairds Cheshire County FA representatives in this season's North West Counties Trophy competition which they went on to win in style, beating Liverpool County FA in the final.
Manager Ian Doran would dearly love to add winning the Wirral Senior to his CV prior to his side's impending progression to the North West Counties League next season.
Following a poor start to the season, Lairds finished very strongly, but could only manage runners-up to Newton, the first time in 30 years that the Frankby outfit, who last won the title back in 1962, have ended the season higher than Lairds.
Heswall manager Peter Fearon will certainly have his motivational skills tested to the limit, if he is to an inspire an upset and emulate the efforts of his reserve side, which recently won the Wirral FA Amateur Cup. In summary, this season's Division Two title race was won by Merseyside Police, with Laird's Reserves finishing in second spot, while in Division Three, newcomers MANWEB Res recorded a League and West Cheshire Shield double, and will be joined in Division Two next season by consistent performers, Chester Nomads.
Poulton Vics were beaten by Barnton on penalties in the Cheshire FA Amateur Cup final, but redeemed their season by beating West Kirby in style to lift the Pyke Cup.
Elsewhere, Christleton beat Blacon YC in the Chester Senior Cup final, Upton AA Res retained the Chester Challenge Cup, and General Chemicals overcame their reserves in the Runcorn Challenge Cup final.
Maghull Res won the Liverpool FA Junior Cup and MANWEB were Lancashire FA Amateur Cup finalists.
West Cheshire followers are reminded that tickets are still available for the league's annual presentation evening which takes place at Vauxhalls on Thursday May 27.
Guest speakers include former international Rugby League referee Billy Thompson and comedian Sean Styles.
