The Mariners won the championship and promotion with two games to spare with a 4-0 victory at Radcliffe, Gavin Cogdon, Michael Richardson and Graeme Armstrong with a brace scoring the goals at Stainton Park to collect the three points last season's Northern League champions needed to confirm the title.
Northern Premier League chairman Mark Harris, together with his directors and officers, congratulate everybody at Mariners Park on their fantastic achievement and wish them well next season competing in the Northern Premier League's top flight after securing back-to-back promotions.
The champions will collect their trophy and medals in front of their own fans at one of their remaining home games, Kendal Town on Thursday night or Colne on Saturday's final day of the regular campaign.
