EAGLE Sports FC finished runners-up in the Cheshire Football League Division One for the second season running.

The Thornton Road outfit sat second but awaited news of Rudheath Social's defeat at Gamesley before the position could be confirmed.

This result means Eagle will play in the season-opening Memorial Cup fixture for the third year running, visiting Garswood on August 2.

They receive their runners-up trophy on Friday at the Cheshire Football League presentation.

Eagle begin pre-season preparations on Tuesday, July 1, 7pm at Thornton Road.
