CLAREGATE Park Rangers kept up their push for a first Redbox Signmakers Beacon Championship crown with a tenth league triumph over Shere Punjab Wolves this week.

Rangers ran out worthy 4-1 winners to extend the gap over nearest rivals and reigning champions Dynamo Dudley, who have a game in hand, to six points, writes Dave McLean.

Having held a narrow 1-0 advantage at the interval through Simon Stokes, Claregate increased the pressure in the second half when adding three more goals through hot shot Kyle Matthews with a brace and Darren Williams. Shere's consolation came from Arun Sanghara.

In the only other top flight fixture, fourth place Sedgley & Gornal United ran riot, crushing basement outfit Cannock United 11-0.

It was a fifth league success in 11 starts for United who had Jack Kelly bagging five.

Pushing their tally into double figures were, Ashley Walker (two), Romi Coglanaise, Dan Taylor, Ben Bratt and Andy Day.

In the Paycare Development Division, FC Premier U21s missed an opportunity to climb into the top three when having to settle for a hard fought 4-4 draw at Penn Rovers.

However the outcome could have been far worse for the Premier boys who trailed 4-1 just after the break.

Rovers appeared to be heading for a fifth league triumph as Lewis Edwards, with a superb long range effort, Declan Aubrey, Adam Craig and debutant Reece Simmonds put them in the driving seat.

But FC Premier, who still have hopes of a top two finish, kept plugging away and were rewarded with a crucial point thanks to replies from Curtis Bullock (two), Kasen Peace and Sam Kayode.

On a second weekend of Beacon league postponements, Coven United rounded off the match action with 2-0 win at Dudley Rangers United.

As a result, Coven swapped places with their latest opponents, moving into the top five of the Paycare section thanks to a better goal difference.
