WINSFORD Saxons, the Crewe and District League champions, put behind them the disappointment of an opening-day defeat when they recorded a first win on Wednesday.

Terry Cain scored twice in a 4-2 victory against Winsford United’s reserves at Knights Grange.

The two-time title-winners had succumbed 3-0 to newcomers Witton Albion reserves at the weekend.

Blues’ second string edged visitors Winnington Avenue 1994 by the odd goal in seven in their curtain-raiser on Saturday.

Meanwhile Winsford Over 3 Grange started a new campaign with a 2-1 win at Barnton Wanderers last night, when Jason Alexander and Darren Fox scored their goals.
