IT was back to league business in the Smurfit Kappa County League at the weekend..

In the Premier Division, Cleator Moor Celtic Reserves entertained Wigton and the away team fired in eight goals to Celtic’s one, which was a fine Daniel Williamson strike from just inside the Wigton half.

The Cockermouth and Pirelli game ended 3-3, while Netherhall hosted Aspatria and held their own for the first 20 minutes before the visitors scored five.

The Division One contest between Borough and Whitehaven Amateurs Reserves finished with a total of 12 goals being scored as Borough eventually ran out 7-5 winners.

Whitehaven seized the initiative with Ryan Smith and Ben Powell goals but Borough struck back with Dan McAdam, Josh Wise and a brace from Andrew Marshalsea to give them a 4-2 advantage at the break.

A Cai Docherty hat-trick for the Amateurs was not enough with further goals from Jordan Lee, Andrew Bezusko and Andrew Marshalsea completing his hat-trick.

UniSun entertained title-chasing Bransty and the away side were unstoppable with a hat-trick from Alan Sim and further goals from Adam Smith, Bradley O’Pray, Mark Callan, Josh Fisher and Liam O’Pray making it 8-1, with UniSun’s goal from Shane Dorward.

Whitehaven Miners missed out to Crown Newlaithes by the odd goal in five as Andrew Barnes put Newlaithes ahead in the 12th minute but Miners equalised through Jack Harrison, only for Barnes to restore the advantage.

Miners levelled again through Jordan Priestly but the game was decided when Andrew Barnes notched his and Newlaithes’ third.

Workington Reds Juniors edged a close game at Silloth 2-0 with goals from the two Kyles, Graham and substitute Teasdale.
