Unbeaten Bebington's efforts rewarded with championship; WIRRAL SUNDAY LEAGUE.

Byline: JAMES DAVIES

THE second of the Wirral Sunday League's domestic league titles was settled last weekend and it was consistent performers Bebington who were crowned Division One champions following a 2-1 victory over promotion rivals Lever Bushell Athletic.

Efforts from Shaun Burgess and Chris Ballard were sufficient as the newly-crowned champions celebrated their 16th win of the season, remaining unbeaten.

On Thursday evening it was a different story for Levers who won the Senior Cup final at Kirklands in dramatic fashion. With four minutes remaining, and trailing 2-1 to a hard-working Wallasey Athletic, Richard Lacey's outfit equalised and then snatched the winner in the fourth minute of stoppage time. Bebington's main rivals for the title, Higher Bebington RBL look assured of the runners-up position despite Sunday's 4-2 home defeat to Bromborough Social.

Meantime, Forum Athletic, who had goals from Mozza Legg and Mike Dunn, looked to be in the driving seat against Wallasey Athletic but the visitors who profited after Danny Price, John Berry and a late winner from Adam Melling turned the game on its head.

Kent concluded their Premier Division campaign with a 2-1 triumph over champions Neston Nomads who capitulated to a smart double from man of the match Danny Morley in a rehearsal for next week's Premier Cup Final.

In Division Two, second-placed Greave showed no signs of nerves as they blitzed Bromborough 9-0 which means victory in their final fixture over Port Sunlight will see them snatch the title from current leaders Champions Bar.

Julian Gorbutt helped himself to a four-timer while further efforts from Nathan Jones (2), Chris Hawthorne (2) and Ben Percival completed a job well done.
