I asked Govan on Twitter and they advised that they have moved their Altrincham League team (A team, 3rds) to L&C Div C. This is a big drop in levels so I expect them to do well in that Division!

Noticed that "Hargreaves (Bury)" have become "Elton Lib Hargreaves" and now play at Whitehead Park in Elton (Bury). I presume the "Elton Lib" is Elton Liberal Club which is nearby.
