Britwell are the East Berkshire League Premier Division champions for the 2021-22 Season.
The Steamteam secured a first-ever top-flight title after a 4-1 rout against Hype Train at the Chicken Ranch on Wednesday night.
The championship win has been a long time in the making for the club in particular manager, John Brennan, and just rewards for all their efforts over the course of the season.
Britwell led the title race for much of the campaign but, in the closing months were made to work hard for the silverware by old rivals, Old Windsor and Singh Sabha, the latter whom relinquish their crown.
It was a season-defining night in the EBFL but, the Steamteam made light work of Hype Train to secure the title and shut the door on the chasing pack.
The home team had a clear lead at the break thanks to goals from Bryan Taylor, Craig Kelly (2) and Connor Hartridge. To their credit, Hype Train stuck to the task and were rewarded with a late consolation through Leon Mannion but, it did not prevent wild celebrations from the home support upon the full-time whistle.
Britwell have won the Premier Division title by a single point from runners-up, Old Windsor, with last season’s winners, Singh Sabha, two points further back in third place.
