A TRIO of new players helped Deane to a 3-2 victory over Bolton Town in the Bolton at Home Sunday League Premier Division.

Only four games were played due to the weather, and the match of the day was this one at Ladybridge.

Deane had struggled all season to get 11 players and two weeks ago manager Craig Holt put out an SOS call out via social media asking for players in the area to join the team.

His call was answered by three young players – Bradley Boyer, Blaine Holt and Rico Seaton – and what a difference they made!

In the first 10 minutes of Sunday's game debutant Boyer managed to shake off his defender and coolly slotted home.

And 10 minutes later he did the same again to double the lead.

Bolton Town halved the deficit with five minutes left of the first half with an excellent strike from Dylan Hewitt.

The second half saw Town pile on the pressure which told after 15 minutes when prolific marksman John Yates found himself with only the goalkeeper to beat and made no mistake.

With both teams going for the victory chances went begging at both ends until, with less than five minutes remaining fellow debutant Seaton beat his full-back and put in an excellent cross where Holt produced an excellent finish for the winner.

Nelson Wanderers carried on their impressive form at St Catherine’s where they beat Breightmet Wanderers 4-0 with goals by Jordan Byrne, Elliot Miller, Danny Brown and Danny Jones.

Bolton Lads and Girls Club went back to the top of the league on goal difference when they went on a goal blitz with a 15-1 victory over Grapes at Hacken Lane.

Ashley Womack scored six, Ste Ward hit five, Zac Stringer grabbed a hat-trick and Peter Lancaster the other one for the winners.

BLGC have now totalled 80 goals in just nine games.

Reigning champions Top Club also had a big victory, beating newcomers to the league this season, Great Lever Wanderers, 9-0.

The Little Hulton side's scorers were Josh Smith (three), Adam Doyle (two), Aron Monks, Dylan Ross, Sam Kelly and Adam Haig.
