Crosshills aim to go out with a bang

The curtain falls on the local football season today but it will be going out with a bang.
There is everything still to play for in Division One of the Craven League where a win for Crosshills at home to Trawden Celtic, 2pm, will see them lift the title.
They have already confirmed a second consecutive promotion and will be playing in the Premier Division next season as their rebuilding plans continue to bear impressive early dividends.
After taking the decision to drop back into local football from the West Lancashire League in 2010, ‘Hills have flourished with a mixture of youngsters and seasoned campaigners.
Crosshills will be out for revenge after suffering an embarrassing 6-0 defeat at Trawden in February. That has been one of only three defeats suffered all season but since that match, ‘Hills have won 11 out of 12 games, only a 0-0 draw with Chatburn spoiling a perfect record.
Trawden also boast impressive form, having gone 13 games without defeat, including 11 wins, since losing at Oakworth on November 5.
And a thrilling finale is in prospect with a large crowd expected at Sutton Playing Fields to see some end-of-season fireworks.
