Unbeaten Sea Mills see off Crosscourt's challenge
THERE'S no stopping unbeaten Sea Mills Park, who remain clear at the top of the Premier Division after winning 3-1 at home to Crosscourt United.
Scott Chancellor celebrated his return from a hamstring injury with the opener for the hosts, who were pegged back to 1-1 when a mistake by Tom Ahern presented Tom McGauley-James with the equaliser.
Sea Mills took control in the second half and Ahern atoned for his earlier error with the second goal and Chancellor completed his double.
A 3-2 home victory against Bristol Barcelona kept Warmley Saints in close contention.
