The Southport Federation team had an excellent win in their June fixture, winning 22 points to 10 against Eccles.
The home leg was played at Scarisbrick NSC and Southport won 8-4, which included wins for Hesketh Arms’ players Fergal Wright (21-16) and Andy Draper (21-19).
The away team travelled to Moorlands Sports and Social Club in Salford and won the aggregate there by a single chalk, with both teams having six winners. Of the Hesketh Arms players in the away side, there were wins for Kez Adams (21-20), Mark Wilde (21-9) and Darren Edgerley (21-14).
The win takes the team up to third place and they will be looking to continue their good form in the July fixture when they take on Harrogate.
