CARNFORTH Rangers are the North Lancashire Premier Division champions after Caton United fell to a 3-2 defeat at home to Ingleton.

Caton had to win their remaining fixtures and overhaul a large goal difference deficit to Carnforth to stand any chance of winning the title, but Saturday's loss has put them out of contention with two games to play and a nine-point gap to Carnforth.

Ingleton have now moved above the table on goal difference thanks to two Joe Towers strikes and a goal Aaron Woodhouse proving the difference. Adam Garnet scored both of Caton's goals.

Caton were also in midweek action where they enjoyed better fortunes as they won the Sam Price Memorial Cup thanks to a 2-1 win against Trimpell and Bare Rangers.

Johnny Durnan have Trimpell the lead when he was left unmarked at a corner, before Steve McMinn equalised to send the match into extra time.

Caton's winner was scored by substitute Guy Spence who sped past two defenders before shooting across the 'keeper.

Cartmel and District were less successful in their Eric Wilson Cup final as they were beaten 4-3 by Highgrove.

Zak Archer and Dan Broadley scored two apiece, and despite goals from Steven Porter, Matthew Burrows, and Michael Robinson, the equaliser proved elusive for Cartmel.
