NO POINTS FOR PARK AGAIN A THORNE IN THEIR SIDE
The weather was again the main winner on Sunday but a great Dave Thorne hat-trick, a brace from Isam Mohammed and debut goal from Rob Davies ensured Slaters hit Park United for 6 on the 3g pitch at Hummersknott. In the only game to take place, Slaters put some daylight between themselves and the bottom four. The win keeps them in with a shout of promotion, but James Gilby's side will need to hit top gear for the remainder of the season. However, it’s a different story for Park United who, despite having a decent sized squad including plenty of experience and always well supported, have sadly struggled in their maiden campaign and only have two more bites of the cherry to stop them finishing pointless. This week they face second bottom Croft, who just edged it 3-4 in the reverse fixture at the
, so it'll be a nervy seat-of-your-pants affair for Park’s traveling fans. Elsewhere in Division 2, Goodfellas will look to re-start their promotion push as they play first game of 2012 away to ACE Cars at Tommy Crooks. Harrowgate Hill meet Grants Gym at Rothmans and with both teams battling for the top, it's sure to be one to watch. Meanwhile Havelock Arms, who could include prodigal son Adi Weston who has re-signed from Harrowgate, face fellow promotion hopeful’s Slaters at Middleton-St-George. Finally The Deacon will hope to derail RI's good run of form at Riverside . In Division 1, the clash of day takes place at the Rugby Club where RFC take on Haughton. Should Grey Horse win, Ronnie Coleman's side will virtually seal the title and in the process become only the second side in the League's history to win a hat-trick of titles. CBMI could move off the bottom of the table for the first time since September but it will be no easy task to overcome Hole in the Wall. Finally at the Carmel , Allstars will hope to send Argos/DHL packing as they bid to cement a credible 3rd place finish in their first season in the top flight.
