OAKLANDS have retained the Mid Cheshire Sunday League championship. They beat Denbigh 4-2 in the final game of the season to pip St Joseph's, leaders for most of the season, by a single point.
They have now won the treble - League, League Cup and District FA Cup - for the second time in three years, making it 12 trophies in all since 1996.
They did it without their manager and star player Jimmy Quinn, who was over-seeing Shrewsbury Town's dramatic return to the Third Division in the Conference play-offs at Stoke City.
Also unavailable were Danny Gee, Steve Arnold, Robbie Moore, goalkeeper Matt Blair and Robbie Antrobus.
Secretary Dave Thomas said: 'We didn't have the best of starts to the season and have been outstanding over the final four games, which were all like cup finals.'
About 150 spectators were at Sutton Lane, Middlewich, the only pitch still open, and saw Alex Mitchell give Oaklands an eighth-minute lead.
Kevin Ward added another after the restart and Oaklands' only doubts came when Les Miranda reduced the arrears within 10 minutes.
But Mitchell and Ward settled the issue with further goals before Andy Stokes converted a late penalty for Denbigh.
Former Northwich Vics manager Quinn was with his Shrewsbury side who beat Aldershot to promotion on a penalty shoot-out. He and Oaklands swapped text messages after their games.
'He was made up for us and we were for him. I don't see any reason why he won't play for us again next season. He doesn't have to play but he can't help himself. He loves it,' added Thomas.
In his absence, ex-Vics full-back Mark Jones, also 44, was the oldest man afield. MIDDLEWICH Town Supporters rattled up the league's biggest score of the season in the final match, beating Egerton Athletic 19-1. Tulloch (4), Hornby (4), Holbrooks (4), Astles (2), Pennington (2), Morris, Eaton and Russell all got on the scoresheet.
And Middlewich drop the curtain on 2003-04 on Sunday when they host Goostrey in the Gordon Bennett Supplementary Cup final.
