Today saw the visit of Walney Island based Vickerstown in a must win game for Wrens if they were to retain an outside chance of the league title, but other results mean that Charnock Richard retained their title a full 2 weeks before Easter.
The match started with both sides trying to gain the upper hand and Vickerstown refused to let Wrens dominate by creating various chances and on 31 minutes their tenacity paid off as they went 1 - 0 up increasing the pressure on Wrens to get their 10th home win of the season and despite the introduction of Ben Seear on 38 minutes it was Vickerstown who went into the interval with a 1 goal lead.
The half time cuppa did the trick as Wrens came out revitalised and on 51 minutes an unmarked Danny Morris levelled the scores. Wrens then took control of the match and further pressure finally paid off as Mickey Clarke gave the home side the lead. Prolific goal scoring machine Ric Seear then stepped up to the plate as he scored a brace on 77 and 80 minutes, the first of which being his 10th successful penalty of the season. Vickerstown added a 2nd on 81 minutes to remind Wrens that they weren't going to have it all their own way. But the match finished Wrens 4 Vickerstown 2.
Charnocks 3 - 0 win at home to Hesketh Bank and Slynes 2 - 0 defeat at Burnley means that Charnock are confirmed as champions leaving Wrens and Slyne to fight it out for the runners up position.
Wrens don't have a game next week. So their next match is on Easter Saturday away at Crooklands Casuals with a 3pm kick off.
