The Bolton Sports Federation Over 35s Football League season finished on Sunday except for one outstanding fixture between Radcliffe Old Boys A and Barhill Vets. Unfortunately, the top of the Division One table is not finalised because of it.

 Horwich St Mary’s had already secured the Division Two, but they won their final game on Sunday to finish five points clear of runners-up Bolton Lads & Girls Club whom they beat 2-0 on Wednesday evening. Mike Cowburn both goals in their victory over Radcliffe Town.

Having been contenders for the Division Four title until they lost to champions Heaton Casuals last Sunday, Ainsworth redeemed themselves against Wigan Town on Sunday, but finish second, five points adrift of Heaton. Brian Marsden scored both the Wigan goals, but Chris Hayes and Martin Jones netted two apiece for Ainsworth.

 In the battle for supremacy near the bottom of Division Four, Unity Brook went two points above Deans Youth with a resounding 6-1 away win. Steve Lockett scored for Deans, but they unfortunately negated they with an own goal. Paul Wheeler scored one for Unity Brook while Roy Greenhaulgh and Neil Derbyshire each added two to complete their comfortable victory.

Division Three was already settled over a week ago with Radcliffe Old Boys B taking the title by just a single point from runners-up Bolton Wyresdale AFC who in turn just pipped Gidlow Athletic by one point.
