BLACKBURN aces, The Ivy, are celebrating after clinching the East Lancashire League title a year after winning promotion to the top flight.

The Ivy are in action tonight at Stacksteads St Josephs, while Burnley Athletic, who also came up last season, finished as runners-up.
Burnley signed off with a 2-1 win at Langho while Read United overpowered Stacksteads 5-2.
Rimington claimed third spot and Worsthorne and Colne United were relegated from Division One.
In the Second Division, Barrowford Celtic won the title with Burnley Belvedere the runners-up berth.
Whinney Hill won the Reserve Division title, with Mill Hill in second place.
