Ponte on the verge of back-to-back championships – only two others side has ever achieved this in NCEL history!

Following a superb 3-0 away win at AFC Mansfield on Wednesday night, Pontefract Collieries leap-frogged their opponents into pole position at the summit of the NCEL Premier Division.

Michael Dunne (29th minute), Aaron Moxam (46th minute) and Eli Hey (56th minute) were all on the scoresheet on a superb night for the Yorkshire side looking for their second championship in successive years – a feat only Shaw Lane and Houghton Main have achieved in the history of the NCEL. *Please not that Rainworth MW achieved back-to-back promotions under Rudy Funk after finishing second in NCEL Premier Division with Bridlington turning down the promotion*

Ponte only need one win from their four remaining games, would could happen as soon as Saturday when they face Maltby Main at Muglet Lane (3:00pm).
