Having been well beaten at leaders Lower Breck last week, Holker Old Boys will be welcoming the team who prop up the First Division North of the North West Counties League when they face Steeton tomorrow.

Kevin Watkin’s men have had the full week to recover for that game after Tuesday night’s scheduled game at Nelson was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Holker fell to eighth in the table as their patchy run of form continued, but they can push themselves back into play-off contention by picking up three points against their struggling visitors.

It’s the final weekend of action before Christmas in the West Lancashire League and results really are becoming a must for Vickerstown in the Premier Division.

The Park Vale outfit are second-from-bottom, with only eight points gained from 12 games, and they face a tough task of picking up a win at fourth-placed Slyne with Hest.

Askam United are well-placed in Division One and they have the chance to rise to third in the table if they defeat struggling Hesketh Bank at Duddon Road.

That is because Millom are in Furness Senior Cup action over the weekend, with them welcoming near neighbours Haverigg United in the second round.

Crooklands Casuals will look to push themselves away from danger against Croston Sports Club, while in Division Two, leaders Walney Island return from their break at home to Galgate.
