Todmorden Borough put the finishing touches to their West Lancashire League season on Saturday at home to promotion-bidding GSK Ulverston Rangers (3.0).

The visitors only need three points from their final three games to seal the runners-up spot behind Askam and will be keen to complete the task this weekend.

Borough, in contrast, have nothing to play for but will be encouraged by memories of their best win of the season - a 2-1 win at Ulverston after Christmas when they finished with nine men.

‘Keeper Lee McGrath and centre back Harry Whitehead should return but Elliott Gilford will be playing cricket.

Borough’s poor run continued with a 1-0 defeat at home to lowly Stoneclough last Saturday and they are now in danger of losing ninth place to Croston Sports.

Boss John Gilford said it had been a typical end-of-season contest, low on quality and with few chances.

Stand-in ‘keeper Glynn Claxton made one fine save for Borough.

The goal came mid-way through the second half when Danny Walsh put a cross into his own net.
