EAST Lancashire skipper Mark Bolton is hoping his men can kick on from now and take confidence from their win over Haslingden.

Bolton’s outfit have endured a torrid time this season and have spent the majority of the campaign in the bottom three But professional Ockert Erasmus is starting to find his feet in his first job as a professional and Bolton is seeing the positves.

“I thought it would be difficult for us to make a sustained title challenge – but I never expected to be in the bottom three,” he said.

“We are better than that and hopefully we can move on now after Saturday.

"It was a great win for us and we played well against a side I rate highly.”
