Crewe Win The Open Cup

Congratulations to Crewe on winning the Open Cup with a 5-1 win against Alsager in the Final earlier this week. I'm sure this will go some way towards minimising the disappointment of losing out to the same opponents for the Division 1 title.

Alsager Win Division 1

Many congratulations to Alsager on winning Division 1 for the first time in their history. A win at Macclesfield last night, in their final match of the season, put them level on points with Crewe 'A'. However, the League tie break rules mean that they become Champions, by virtue of the fact that they won more matches - 8 against Crewe's 7.
