Birkenhead Sunday Association Football League round-up, 21 April 2024

Rig Move FC, who are currently sitting at the top of the Maxwell’s Barber Division One, lifted the Wirral District Football Association Premier Cup after a 2-1 success over high Flying Premier Division side Woodchurch Hotel in a slight giant-killing act.

Daniel Woodcock and Billy Nixon were the marksmen making all the right moves for Rig Move while Jordan Deer netted for Woodchurch Hotel.

A solitary goal from Kieran Fair for Whitby Rangers was just the tonic needed to lift the Frank Robinson Presidents Cup by defeating Rig Move on Sunday. Whitby Rangers are looking to match last season’s feat with another treble; they are waiting on a date for the WDFA Sunday Amateur Cup Final and the first division championship.

Rig Move were aiming to lift four pieces of silverware, as they have another semi final next Sunday and are in with a shout of the Maxwell’s Barber Division One Title.

A superb double from Luke Campbell for Lancelyn Glenavon secured a place in the Tony Houlihan Memorial Challenge Cup Final, after a narrow 2-1 win over Cheshire Cheese (Anthony Evans). They will meet Dock AFC in the final, who they faced last season in the Cheshire Cup final and were successful.

Bushell Athletic earned a spot in The David Keith Tacy Final after Ben Glover and Liam Henshaw netted for the hosts 2-1 over a very strong Upton United side.

Action from Division Three saw Oxton Celtic claim their seventh maximum points on the trot, with a 3-2 win at Higher Bebington Kelma (Lewis Simpson, Liam Atherton) and thus claimed the title in their debut season and remain unbeaten with dropping only four points from two draws earlier in the season. Kelma have been on a roll themselves with a surge up the division.

Wirral Athletic (Harry Huggins, Jamie Payne, Greg Beck, Dylan Palmer) got back to winning ways with a series of reversals to maintain second spot, with a narrow 4-3 win over West Kirby United (Tom Fleming (2), Matty Murphy)
