A DOUBLE header weekend gave Neston South Wirral mixed fortunes as they picked up a vital 4-3 win over Wrexham on Saturday, before suffering a 3-2 loss at Northern in Sunday's rearranged game.
On Saturday, Mark Donnelly gave Neston a perfect start, when he diverted Barry Roberts' pin point cross into the Wrexham goal early on. Wrexham hit back through Phil Wilkinson.
Pete Evans put the Welshmen ahead from close range.
Matt Siggins levelled for the Parkgate side with ten minutes left on the clock, and in a rousing finale, Aled Jarvis and Lawrence McNeight made it 4-2.
Wilkinson's late penalty led to a nervy finish, but Neston hung on for a deserved win.
Sunday's trip to Northern actually saw an even better Neston performance, but they fell behind to two counter attacking goals.
In the second half, it was all Neston, however Jordi Sanders extended Northern's lead from a penalty corner. Jason Long reduced the deficit from a corner rebound, and Neston laid siege to the home goal in the final quarter. Matt Siggins flicked in Neston's second, and in the final seconds McNeight almost grabbed an equaliser when he slid in to deflect Fergal Horwood's pass.
