For the first time this calendar year and seemingly this season, there was a full league programme in NEMLA’s Prem 3 this week. Here’s what happened and what the landscape looks like after this weekend’s games.
The home team came out on top in all three games, with Liverpool doubling up on Leeds 8-4, York beating Hull by the same score and Oldham topping Chester 7-3.
Those results leave Liverpool top at 7-1 (wins-losses), with Oldham (5-3) leapfrogging Newcastle (5-2) on goal difference but with the Knights having a game in hand. Leeds are ahead of York (both 3-4) with Hull behind them at 2-5 and Chester bringing up the rear at 1-7.
Next weekend sees the Lancashire Cup semi-finals pitting Oldham against Leeds and Heaton Mersey Guild against Liverpool, and a single league game with Hull hosting York in the return leg of yesterday’s fixture.
The Knights return to action on 12 March away to Chester.
