THE Westmorland Football League has played its final round of matches before Christmas in all three of its divisions.

The James Cropper League saw weather affect a number of its matches during the afternoon across all its divisions, but the players fought through the difficulties.

Wetheriggs United were the only team who were able to play in Division One of the league after several games were called off due to poor weather.

They were able to reclaim the top spot with their performance after a hard fought 3-2 victory against Penrith Reserves.

Impressive goals came courtesy of Alex Johnstone, Lamim Cham and Luke Housby who all ensured their side remained dominant in the league table.

In Division Two Kendal United Reserves battled back from 1-0 down before defeating Staveley United Reserves 5-3 at Castle Drive.

After the first goal from Staveley, the pressure was mounted for a comeback.

The comeback saw some impressive play and skilful attacking by the Kendal squad who used foot work and speed to turn the tide of the game.

The visitors made a strong start and opened the scoring before a brace from Kyle Hansen and goals by David Crierie, Brandon Croskell Robinson and Craig Blakey sealed the win.

In the other game Jordan Wilkinson’s injury time strike rescued a point for Burneside who drew 2-2 at Kendal County Reserves.

Kendal County scored through Jack Carradice and a Connor Stephenson penalty while Scott O Callaghan scored for Burneside.

Endmoor KGR Reserves won 7-0 at Penrith Royal in Division Three, braces from Gavin Dent, Ross Walker and Connor Winn as well as a goal by Chris Ross rounded off the win.
