By Simon Harrison

We cover off the results from the final weekend of September.

Saturday 25 September


With the top two teams not in league action at the weekend, Springhead had the chance to join them on points and that they did after a seven-goal thriller at St Johns Street. Jordan Hall helped his side to a 4-3 win over Heywood St James as the striker bagged a hat-trick with Matthew Dixon scoring the other for ‘Head.

Chadderton Reserves are up to sixth after they secured back-to-back wins for the first time this season. The Oldham side also scored five for the second week running, winning 5-4 at home to Stockport Georgians. Matthew Wilkinson’s hat-trick helped the home side to the three points with Joe Ray and Zenon Caine getting the other goals while Paul Connor, Callum Campbell, Joel Atkinson and Dean McGregor all scoring for the unlucky Georgians.

Old Alts picked up their first win of the campaign thanks to a single Dominic Moir goal which proved to be the difference at Crompton House. The 1-0 win over Heyside moves the visitors up a place to thirteenth and go level on points with their opponents.

Beechfield United took a share of the spoils from their game against Dukinfield Town with the two sides unable to be separated. Devante Jacobs and Jack Saw scored for Town while Michael Phythian and Kurtis Lee netted for United in the 2-2 draw at Woodhams Park.


East Manchester picked up their first victory of the season when they welcomed Wilmslow Albion to Wright Robinson. Patrick Kubacek and a Fin Malcolm brace helped East to a 3-1 win which sees them double their points tally and moves them up to sixth.

Boothstown narrowly saw off Govan Athletic in a tight affair to see them join the top two teams on points. Ben Oldroyd and Tom Perkins both scored in the 2-1 win for the hosts who stay in third but hold a seven-point lead ahead of fourth place.

Moorside Rangers are now seven points off the leaders after their 3-2 win over Tintwistle Athletic. Patrick Gregory and Kaden Goodman both scored for Rangers while Callum Scott and Harry Mainwaring get the goals for the hosts. The defeat leaves Tintwistle at the bottom and have played at least one game more than the teams around them.


League leaders Bolton United were not in action so Bolton Borough had the chance to close the gap to two points of which they happily obliged after comfortably seeing off Cavaliers. Bolton romped to a 15-0 win with Mohammed Nageeb (6), Gianni Tsalakou (3), Andrew Buckley (3), Nil Grau, Michael McGinlay and Aleksander Calaku all finding the net for the hosts.

Avro Reserves clinched their fourth consecutive win and move up into fifth place as a result. Oumar Camara’s hat-trick steered his side to a 6-2 win at Breightmet United with Jay Brennan and Lewis Unwin scoring the others at Moss Park.

AFC Monton got back to winning ways in league action with a 2-1 victory at home to Avenue, moving to within three points of the leaders. Aaron Swift and Adam Campbell both scored for the hosts with Sam Gibson getting Avenue’s reply at New Alder Park.

Just one goal was scored in the game at Leigh Sports Village where Leigh Genesis hosted Daisy Hill Development. Connor Wright netted the only goal of the game to give his Leigh side all three points which moves them up to seventh.
