TOP Club kept their Division One title hopes alive with a stunning comeback victory over Astley Bridge Elite in the Bolton Sunday League.

The fourth-placed Little Hulton side knew only a win would be enough to keep them in the hunt for the championship.

And it was looking sick for them when they went 3-1 behind before a fantastic performance saw them storm back to win 4-3.

Top Club took the lead after five minutes with an excellent finish from Reece Charlton.

In the 15th minute Astley Bridge levelled when Tom Howlin curled a free kick from just outside the penalty area around the wall and into the bottom corner.

Five minutes into the second half Howlin got his second and Bridge increased their lead 10 minutes later when Howlin put an excellent cross into the area and James Stubbs knocked the ball past the oncoming goalkeeper to make it 3–1.

Top Club refused to buckle and with 20 minutes to go Charlton scored his second.

Little Hulton piled on the pressure and equalised with 10 minutes left when the ever-reliable Travis Vaughn produced a superb finish.

Top Club knew a point would not be enough if they had any aspirations of winning the title and they went on all-out attack.

It paid off two minutes from time when Charlton beat two defenders and slotted his hat-trick goal past the keeper.

Leaders Farnworth United were held to a 4-4 draw by mid-table Bridge Celtic.

Farnworth's goals were scored by John Stephenson (two), Aron Monks and veteran Martin Brown with Greg Travers, Ross Barron, Craig Walkden and Dave English replying for the Adlington side.

In Division Two, runaway leaders Barr Hill beat bottom Club Bolton Rangers 9-0, for whom striker Rhuben Rose scored four to add to the eight he scored in the pervious game.
