CWF League March 2017 – Second Session Of The Spring Season
The CWF League March 2017 session was exactly the same format and teams as the February session. This proved to be a day of exceptional goal scoring, with a total of 31 goals scored in the 20 matches. The biggest score of the day was a 5-0 victory for the much improved Crewe Alexander in the game against 1874 Northwich.
There were five 0-0 draws, seven 1-0 wins and three 1-1 draws. Four goals were scored in two games and three goals in one game.
In the Premier Division, a resurgent Northgate Strollers were back to their best with a maximum 12 points from four victories. The Strollers now lead the division by 5 points over Wigan Walkers who only managed to collect 5 points on this CWF League March 2017 session. Newly promoted Nantwich Barony collected 5 points and stand third in the table.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day was the Widnes team only collecting 1 point and Helsby Old Boys didn’t fair much better with 3 points. Widnes and Helsby prop up the table with 7 points apiece, Helsby bottom on goal difference.
The Championship Division is much tighter with only 4 points separating all 5 teams. From propping up the table with only 2 points in February, the new look Crewe Alexander collected 8 points in this CWF League March 2017 session to put them in second place on goal difference to Northgate Rovers.
Vintage Celtic Over 60’s lead the table by 3 points and had a disappointing day with 3 draws and a sole victory over Northgate Rovers. Neston Nomads, who topped the division in February, now find themselves joint bottom with 1874 Northwich who have the inferior goal difference.
Thanks to League Treasurer Bill Tynan, who oversaw the days events due to the absence through illness of George Brady. We all wish George a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him again shortly.
