Skelmersdale United 2-4 Bootle

LEEK TOWN LAST GAME OF THE SEASON
United now turn their attention to the final game of the season, where they will travel to Derbyshire to face Play-off contenders Leek Town and with just the one game to go United will create a little bit of history, should they come away from the game without a draw, they will be the first in NPL History which goes back to 1968, to go a full season without a share of the spoils, should the game end in a draw then they will still have achieved the record the previous best being 2 drawn matches.
The club will be running a coach to Leek full details can be found on the supporter’s club Facebook group.
