Crewe and Nantwich lift cup in Lymm
After clinching the South Lancashire and Cheshire Division 3 title a week earlier Crewe and Nantwich had a strong support as they dominated from kick-off.

Captain Kev Naughton opened the scoring going over from close range after 21 minutes. Scot Cann converted before kicking a further three points from an offside penalty.

Karl Tatlock ran between the posts following a strong run by Andy Farrington. Cann converted.

Another Cann penalty ensured the Vagrants were in complete control at the break with a 20 – 0 lead.

Crewe and Nantwich did not let up on Prenton in the second half as Joe Gammage tore through their defence to score. Cann converted.

Eli Woodward added to the Liverpool side’s miserable afternoon as he broke free of several tackles to run between the posts. Another Cann conversion made the score 34 – 0.

Prenton were rewarded for the second half graft with a consolation try from their number 8 which was converted.

But, it was Crewe and Nantwich who had the last say in proceedings, as the forwards powered forward Killian Roache dived over from close range to complete the rout.

A delighted Crewe and Nantwich coach, Geoff Crawford said: "They're a great team, they like to play good rugby and we're happy to cap off a fine season in style."
