Britwell on verge of securing a first-ever Premier Division title in a nail-biting midweek finale


PICTURE: Britwell will secure the Premier Division title with a win against Hype Train at the Chicken Ranch on Wednesday night but, defeat will give both Old Windsor and Singh Sabha the chance to steal the crown.


Britwell will be crowned Premier Division champions for the first-ever time if they can beat Hype Train at the Chicken Ranch on Wednesday night (6pm).

The Steamteam have been chasing a first Premier title all season and led the race for much of the campaign, bar a slight dip in form early in the New Year.

Momentum swung back in their favour after a valuable win at rivals, Old Windsor, 10 days ago, and Britwell put themselves within touching distance of the silverware after a 7-3 victory at Frontline last weekend.

Luke Mann starred for The Steamteam with a hat-trick, with further goals from Craig Kelly, Jermaine Payne, Lawrie Toombs and substitute Josh Birtwistle. The Frontline strikes came from Naheer Nawaf (2) and Ahmed Aljaryan.

A win against mid-table, Hype Train, will now see Britwell end their long wait for a first Premier Division title and no-doubt spark scenes of celebration at the Chicken Ranch.

Anything less than three points would be a disaster for the Steamteam and open the door for both Old Windsor and the defending champions, Singh Sabha. The Os, one point behind Britwell at the moment, travel to Cressex on the final day of the season this Saturday (2pm KO), after Singh Sabha, three behind the leaders, host Stoke Poges on Friday night (7pm KO).

PICTURE: Both Pundit and Frontline are almost safe from relegation this season but, wins for both Cressex and Stoke Poges on Wednesday night will keep their hopes of Premier Division football next year alive.


Cressex gave their chances of avoiding relegation this season a small boost when a last-minute equaliser earned a point and a 4-4 draw at home to Pundit last weekend.

Frontline can condemn both Cressex and Stoke Poges to relegation from the Premier Division this season with a win at home to the latter on Wednesday night (6pm). Stoke must get all three points to keep alive their hopes of beating the drop.

Cressex, the Presidents Cup runners-up, head to Iver Heath on Wednesday night (6pm) knowing that defeat would see them playing football in Division One next season.

Frontline are then at home to Hype Train in the final act this Saturday (2pm).

PICTURE: Old Windsor Reserves confirmed themselves as Division One runners-up on Saturday.


Old Windsor Reserves confirmed their status as Division One runners-up this season after a 2-1 win at home against Sandhurst Town last weekend. The Os had to come from behind after Jacob Ashdown-Ford had given Sandhurst a first-half lead but, goals from Liam Spires and Laith Belkacem ensured the points for the home team.

Old Windsor host champions, Harts Of Bracknell, on Wednesday night (6pm), before the title-holders host Baylis United in he final game of the season this Saturday (2pm).

Chalvey Sports A will secure third place and the second promotion position with a win at home to Braywood Beavers on Saturday (2pm).
