Northwich Victoria end the dominance of NWCFL teams winning team of the week after taking 40% of this weeks vote. The Vic's made it 15 games unbeaten as they defeated a resurgent New Mills 2-1 at Valley Road following a fine 4-2 midweek victory away at Mossley.
Although a play-off place impossible, Jim Gannon's men have been in fantastic form since the ex Stockport manager took over from Lee Ashcroft in mid December and they continue their run as one of the in-form teams in the league. Add in the run to the final of the Cheshire Senior Cup and the work Gannon has done with the Vic's could well be rewarded with silverware.
As mentioned the Vic's 15 match run has seen them reach the Cheshire Senior Cup Final which will be played at Nantwich Town against Tranmere Rovers. Victories over Skrill Conference sides Hyde and Macclesfield will see them in good stead and I'm sure they won't be fazed by what i imagine to be a young Tranmere side. They will also look to consolidate a solid top half finish in the table and with 5 fixtures left, including a cup final, be hoping to finish the season strongly in preparation for next year. With a full pre-season and the chance to sign some new players, don't be surprised if the Vic's are up there challenging next season for promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division.
The Cheshire Senior Cup Final will be played at Nantwich Town FC on Tuesday 29th April with a 19-45pm KO.
Vics' are at home this evening to Bamber Bridge - EvoStikNPL Division One North Fixture - Kick-off 19:45 - Looking to extend the unbeaten sequence to 16 matches.
