In the NWCFL Premier Division, Rylands and Whitchurch Alport continued their impressive start to the season, with narrow wins for both, 2-1 over Ashton Athletic and a slender 3-2 win away at Skelmersdale United respectively - Jud Ellis the hero for Luke Goddard's side netting a hat-trick.
Longridge Town stayed fourth in the standings after their 3-1 win away at Hanley Town, whilst Irlam lie just one place below them after a 2-0 away victory at Padiham - Karl Cassell and Marcus Perry with the second-half goals.
Bootle made it back-to-back wins with a 4-1 win against Burscough - who are now up to eighth after a slow start to the season whilst Avro secured their first win of the season, a 3-1 win away at Charnock Richard.
In the First Division North, Lower Breck made it two 5-1 wins in two days as they beat St Helens Town in front of 176 whilst Ashton Town secured a 2-0 victory away at second-bottom Pilkington to stay second.
To round off a great day for the teams in the top half of the table, Nelson, Atherton LR and Golcar United all won. Jack Coop bagged a brace for Andy Harrison's side at Cleator Moor Celtic, whilst a slender 1-0 win against AFC Blackpool for the side from Crilly Park saw them maintain seventh and a very impressive 544 witnessed a super derby at Emley AFC as the Connor brothers saw a 4-1 win for their side.
Lastly, Brent Peters has his side firing on all cylinders as Bacup Borough won for the second time this Bank Holiday weekend as Joel Gnabouyou netted a 94th minute winner against Chadderton - making the 14 mile journey home all smiles.
The First Division South saw the top two sides pitted against each other as FC Oswestry Town hosted league leaders Vauxhall Motors. On a difficult afternoon in the heat, Matt Burton's sides ran out 2-1 winners - a win which levelled the sides on points but Motors stayed on top with a superior goal difference.
Whilst Abbey Hey won 2-0 against Stockport Town and Cammell Laird 1907 were 4-2 winners over St Martins - Luke Blondel kept up his scoring form with a brace and Alsager Town came from behind away at Cheadle Heath Nomads to secure a 2-1 win.
And that concludes the Bank Holiday action. Want more we hear you ask?! Wait only until Wednesday night when the action returns when Longridge Town and Charnock Richard battle it out in their Emirates FA Cup Preliminary Round Replay - 7:45 pm kick-off.
