TRAILONG early on it took a well-taken equaliser from Elliot Bradshaw to level before Liam Bowden put the Storks ahead at half-time.

The second-half saw Billinge playing as they can as a brace from Rob Ablewhite - include a great header that made it 4-1.

Denton pulled one back to make the final score 4-2 giving The Storks a needed and well-deserved victory.

After the game Billinge manager Geoff Parr was delighted with his charges.

He said: "After last week's very poor performance at Whaley Bridge we were back to our best today and with still loads of quality lads missing we can look forward to the remainder of the season with confidence."

Billinge travel to Maghull in the LCFA Saturday Challenge Cup - 2nd Round. Kick-off at Old Hall Field, Maghull is 2pm
