IT’S a busy Easter weekend for Kendal Town as they bid to seal their Evo-Stik League West safety.

The Mintcakes travel to the Potteries to take on Newcastle Town on Saturday then round off their home programme on Easter Monday when they host Droylsden.

Town then bring the curtain down on what has been a difficult campaign with a trip to Widnes the following Saturday, April 27.

Colwyn Bay’s departure for the Welsh league set up has as expected led to Evo-Stik League officials confirming that only one team will be relegated from the West division.

Therefore, barring an extraordinary revival by bottom placed Skelmersdale, Town will finish in second bottom spot and will therefore avoid the drop.

The Merseysiders are currently six points behind Kendal and have a vastly inferior goal difference, so would effectively need to take seven points from their last three games to overhaul Town.

And as Skelmersdale, who have won just two league games all season, host leaders Atherton Collieries on Saturday, the chances of them keeping their slim survival hopes alive should have been realistically ended by the time they face Prescot Cables on Easter Monday.
