Southport & AA win to set up a title decider
Ribbleton (green) v Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs - Premier Division
Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs, fresh from winning the Challenge Cup on Wednesday met Ribbleton at UCLan Sports Arena and won 3-0 thanks to goals from Rob Lamont (2) and Matthew Coughlan. An entertaining first half finished level 0-0 at half time but the second half saw Gareth Jones lads do what they do best and that is grind out results by excellent teamwork and ruthless finishing.
This result means that Southport & AA move back to the top of the table with 41 points from 17 games and a goal difference of 43, Acregate Lane LC are in second spot with 40 points from 17 games and a goal difference of 19. These two will meet each other for their final game of the season on Sunday 12 May at Bankfield Lane, Churchtown, Southport PR9 7NJ.
A win for Acregate would mean that they would win the title for the first time in their history, something that is long overdue. A win for Southport & AA or a draw would see them become League Champions in only their second season in the League and they would also complete an impressive league and cup double. This game will be a fitting finale to the most competitive premier division for years which has seen AFC Ingol, Ribbleton, Acregate and Southport & AA lead the table at various times with Hunters & Ingol Rangers inevitably lurking in the background.
