Three BSF Over 35s Football League games were played on Sunday, leaving just two to complete the season, one of which is the Division Four match when newly crowned champions Atherton Town visit Moss Bank Vets next Sunday.


Atherton crushed Radcliffe Rangers 7-1 on Sunday as Paul Atherton scored five and Lee Atherton two. With one game to go, Atherton have scored a massive 63 goals and have a goal difference of 49, both being the highest in the whole league. By losing, Radcliffe Rangers finish fourth in Division Four, clearing the way for Stoneclough FC to take the runner-up spot.


In Division One, Salford United and Old Bolts played out a 3-3 draw with Carl O’Malley and Anthony Weall (2) scoring for United while Gary Penden scored one and Ryan Hardwidge two for Old Bolts. If Salford United beat Salford Waggon in their final game on Wednesday, they will go above Old Bolts on goal difference to take third place behind champions Radcliffe Old Boys A and Rochdale Sports Club Vets.


After a difficult season, Bolton Wyresdale recorded their second win, but still finished bottom of Division Two. A goal by Arron McCarthy and an own goal gave Wyresdale a 2-0 home victory over Dobbies in the Division dominated by champions Heaton Casuals and Royal Farnworth Vets A.


Both scheduled games in Division Three were conceded because Ainsworth FC and Blackrod Town were unable to field teams. Eagley Vets beat Tika Taka Volunteer to the title by a single point and Wigan Town finished third.
