CHRISTLETON started the new year as they finished the last.
Ged Peacock’s side moved up to seventh in West Cheshire League Division One with a 4-0 home hammering of Hale on Saturday which continued their winning run.
Adam Thelwell-Wilson (2), Darren Coyle and Jack Ford struck.
Chester Nomads are in even better form and their 3-0 home win over Ellesmere Port – achieved in spite of the fact they were missing a recognised goalkeeper – hauled them up to second. Paul Sweeney (2) and Danny Hughes netted.
Blacon Youth Club – now under the sole control of Aden Shannon after Ben Heath quit – lost 2-0 at home to Southport Trinity after Jamie Rodgers was sent off.
Helsby (Robert Powell, John Coady) drew their Division Two derby at Capenhurst Villa (Luke Eccles, Mike Banks) 2-2.
In Division Three, Upton AA Reserves (Simon Mapletoft 2, Nathan Freeman) won 3-2 at Belfry as Capenhurst Reserves (Tom Hockley, Damian McGinnigle) went down by the same score at AFC Bebington Athletic Reserves.
