Mellor Thirds show how to play on the plastic

The weather cancelled out most of Saturday's Lancashire & Cheshire League programme. But Mellor Thirds were able to play on Abacus Media's plastic and used the opportunity to return to the top of Division C with an 8-2 win. There were two goals apiece for John Callaghan, Liam Totterdell and new signing Dean Hardwick. An own goal and a penalty from Craig Fairfield, returning from injury made up the total. It was just 1-1 at half time. But Mellor cut loose in the second half.

Elsewhere, the club achieved Charter Standard Status, which is recognition of how well it is run and is said to be useful when applying for grants.
