Champagne flows as Skelmersdale United celebrate winning Evo Stik Division One North title

Skelmersdale United are the 2012-13 Evo Stik Division One North champions.
They only needed a point and Mark Jackson’s goal on the stroke of half-time set them on their way to complete an eight-year-old long project.
Tommy Lawson’s men missed out on the title in 2011 to Chester FC, who recently promoted to the Blue Square Premier, by just two goals on the final day of the season.
Last year Skelmersdale also failed to reach the play-offs on the last day.
But, Skelmersdale and Lawson were determined to rest those demons and they have cruised to winning the title, having lost only three league games.
Farsley played really well in the first half in an attempt to spoil the party, but Neil Parsley’s men fell apart at the start of the second half.
Farsley were pathetic and gifted three poor goals after individual errors.
Matthew Hughes struck two minutes into the second half and he got one more after the ball hit him on the back and fell into the bottom corner – Joshua Hine scored the other goal.
Late-on, Sam Robinson went close for Farsley, but this was Skelmersdale’s day and the champagne flowed after the final whistle.
