Goldenhill Wanderers made it an incredible three successive promotions with victory at Shrewsbury Town last night, thereby securing the West Midlands League Division 1 North runners-up spot.

A win in their final game was needed to take second place from Leek Town and they achieved this with a 2-1 result over the Shrews at Market Drayton.

Kim Cartlidge scored shortly before half time and Holly Ellison got their crucial second goal with 14 minutes left.

Manager Nathan Ball commented on Twitter: “I’m absolutely delighted with what we’ve achieved yet again. Players bought in and people wrote us off and we kept going. I can now look forward to a well earned rest and prepare to start it all again In late June.”

The Staffordshire-based side will now make their debut in the West Midlands Premier Division next season.
