OLD Stretfordians increased their lead at the top of Division One of the Lancashire and Cheshire Amateur Football League to four points with a 3-1 win at lowly Didsbury.

Strets led 2-0 at the break with goals from Josh Malcolmson and Sam Mitten but Didsbury hit back with a deserved goal from Sam Hyde before the ageless Alex Ritchie sealed victory for Strets with a late strike.

In the other games, Chorltonians edged a 4-3 win against Moston Brook and Milton won by the odd goal in five to move into third spot, while Parrs Wood Celtic kept up their improved form with a 3-1 win against Oldham Vics.

There were goals galore in Division B, led by Rochdale Galaxy with a double-figure haul against Hillgate and leaders Milton seconds had a comfortable 5-2 win against Trafford United seconds to increase their lead at the top to four points with a game in hand.

Spurley Hey seconds enjoyed a 3-2 win at Dukinfield Athletic seconds, who had Matty Parr opening the scoring and Ant Howard with a late second, with Athletic having Lewis Hampson as their star man, but Spurley netted three times between the Athletic goals to secure victory.

Radclyffe FC continued their impressive form in Division C as they kept up their unbeaten record and lead by four points after an 8-0 win against Parrs Wood Celtic.

AFC Oldham thirds kept in touch with a big 8-0 win against Old Strets seconds and Abacus Media thirds were also firing on all cylinders in a 6-0 victory over Chorltonians Athletic.

Manchester Rovers were also in sharp form with a 5-2 victory at Stoconians thirds.

It is looking like a three-horse race in Division D with comfortable victories for the top three teams.

Staly Lions keep their top spot after a 4-2 win at Moston Brook fourths and they are just a point ahead of Stoconians, fourths who beat Whalley Range seconds 7-0, and Bury Ams thirds, who were also in seventh heaven with a 7-1 win at Trafford United thirds.

There were plenty of goals at Chorltonians Albion in a 7-5 defeat by AFC Stockport and an excellent game at Didsbury thirds saw Old Strets thirds take the spoils with a 4-2 success.

There was not much joy for teams in the last 16 of the Manchester Amateur Cup with the only survivors being Division One leaders Waterloo who won a thrilling contest 4-3 at fellow title challengers Trafford United.
