Our First team continued in their quest for Premier League honours, which would be a first since 2010, with a hard fought and vital 3-2 win over Rygersdal on Saturday afternoon. This result, allied to Norway Parks going down to Edgemead on Thursday night means we have opened up a gap of 6 points over Parks, both with 3 games to play, however Hellenic are still lurking and if they win their game in hand, they will trail by just 5 points.
5 further points from 3 outings will secure the title irrespective of Norway Parks or Hellenic results, but the fixtures over the next 2 weeks will be pivotal.
Saturday's fixtures are crucial as we travel to Norway Parks, with Hellenic also having a tough assignment at fourth placed Edgemead, the following weekend sees Norway Parks take on Hellenic as we entertain Saxon Rovers in our last home game of the campaign.
So the title is close, however there is still a lot of football to play with all 3 teams still in the mix !!
The second team suffered a major setback to their title aspirations went they went down to the Rygersdal second stringers, and are now level on points with Edgemead, but with a further 2 games played.
The Third team SECURED THE THIRD DIVISION TITLE with a win at Bothasig to ensure an unassailable lead over rivals Vasco da Gama and Norway Parks. Well done guys on a GREAT season and a vindication of the committee decision to play in effect the Colts (allied at times with some experience) in the Third division.
Lastly, but by no means, leastly, the Over 45B team have one hand on the title, having beaten Queens Park at Saturday and now head the over 45C league on goal difference. Given the odd nature of the way the league standings take into account, De Beers technically have a further point with a draw against the "Bye" fixture, meaning we have need a point from our last 2 games, as our goal difference is much superior. However it could be that we have already clinched the title...more to follow on this.
