BEBINGTON Athletic have silverware in touching distance. Frontrunners for the best part of the season in the Robin Hodgson Division, they are already through to the Wirral FA Junior Cup final and on Saturday reached the second round of the Robin Hodgson Cup with a 7-0 thrashing of Rangers Breaks.
Leading the rout was three-goal Ben Jenner with James Douglas, Mike Critchley, James Tanner and Matty Peers also on target.
Erratic performers Pavilions, who can impress one week and become cannon fodder the next, turned the tables on Window Shades to go through 3-1.
Following a dismal run of bad form, Dean Corris manned the tiller for Mersey Ferries and plotted a sure course for round two, after his fine hat-trick anchored his side to a 3-1 victory over battling Leasowe Castle, Tommy Walker replying for the losers.
The outstanding tie takes place this weekend with Avon Athletic favourites to account for Black Horse at the Widnes Recreation Centre.
Tomorrow's Robin Hodgson Division action should see Bebington Athletic extend their lead at the top of the table when they entertain Rangers Breaks for the second week running, while Leasowe Castle and Window Shades could go either way, and traditional bad travellers Pavilions will have their work cut out at a rejuvenated Mersey Ferries.
