How we stand

Last Saturday’s 3-1 win at Abbey Hulton United extended West’s lead at the top of the First Division South to three points, due to results elsewhere. A reshuffle in the top five means that West are now tailed most closely by Wythenshawe Amateurs, with New Mills behind the Ammies on goal difference.

Ellesmere flew out of the blocks this season, winning four of their first five games, but their progress has slowed of late. They fought back from 1-3 down to force a draw against Cheadle Heath Nomads last time out, but that result extended their winless run to seven – seeing them slip out of the play-off places into 8th, with 21 points from 13 games.
