Lots of Premier games this week, not so many in Division 1, however, a few had an impact on the milestone stats. 

On Tuesday night, AFC Darwen played their 350th game as they entertained Emley AFC at home. Saturday saw a couple of points to note. Firstly, Congleton Town notched up their 400th league victory as they beat Runcorn Town 4-2 at the Silk 106.9 Stadium, secondly Squires Gate conceded their 2100th goal when Irlam hit their third in the 5-1 win at The Brian Addison Stadium.

In the Premier Division, 350 goals have now been scored in the 90 games played. Either Cameron Grant of Bootle or Lewis Lacey of Avro hit the 350th, both are logged as 90th minute goals! 58% of strikes have come in the second half. Interestingly, 68 have been scored in the last ten minutes (19.4%)
