Liverpool Business Houses Championship Winners 2020/21: The Brow

The Brow’s 3-1 win over Mottram sealed their place in the Liverpool Business Houses Premier.

With six games to play, they found themselves six points off the place, but the string of wins which they put together skyrocketed them to the top of the table.

In four of their last seven, they beat three of the top four including a 3-0 win over Mount Carmel, who narrowly missed out on claiming the automatic promotion spoke, falling two points short of Mackenzies.

Since the restart they won 13 out of their 17 including a 10-0 win over Sefton and two wins over Mottram.

Player-manager Lee McCardle told Off The Park: “We are made up (to win the league), the last two months of the season we come together and showed that we are a good team by going on a run beating those around us, we were unbeaten away from home all year and we haven’t dropped a point.”

“It was tough because it was like a two-part season, really, so keeping everyone committed and onboard is the hardest job as a manager because you have to make tough decisions and players get left out, which they aren’t happy about.

“The biggest game for me was actually a defeat against Claybrow because beforehand we hadn’t played for a while and the teams around us were dropping points,” he explained. “It sort of left us out in front without playing, it was a smash and grab but it set the marker down to all of us, to say in football matches and if you don’t put the chances away as well as stay calm it will come back to bite you and that game, it did.

“A few questions were asked of the lads as a group, but the reaction after was eight straight wins against the teams around us challengers themselves.”
