Rochdale AFC Strollers are back in top spot in Division 1, a position they are accustomed to, with September leaders Preston North End Senior Whites two points adrift. One of these two teams look odds on to take the title.
Tameside Striders had a mixed day, beating September table toppers Preston and losing to both the Strollers and to bottom placed Bury Relics. The Bury side are still two points behind the Striders and it could go to the wire to see which team drops into Division 2 in next year’s Spring league.
Division 2 sees AFC Blackpool Senior Seasiders increase their lead at the top by two points over Man City. Moston Brook FC only picked up one point and swap places with Salcom at the bottom. Salcom, with no points in September due to their unavailability to fulfil their fixtures had a good day with five points now on the board.
