CHALFONT St. Peter Under 23s have won the first-ever East Berkshire League Development Division title after an unbeaten first season in the league.
The young Saints dominated the division, created to help with the transition from youth to adult football, with six wins and two draws, scoring 31 goals and conceding just four.
Chalfont wrapped up the title after an impressive 5-0 home win against Pinewood Panthers U23s on Saturday, putting them seven points clear of second-placed Calcot Royals, who have just two matches remaining.
The club’s official Twitter account posted: “They did it! Congratulations to @eliotcfrilli and his team! Undefeated league champions. Keep an eye out for news on our U23s, there’s some exciting plans on the way to increase their development!”
Finlay Johnson is the first team manager at the club. He tweeted: “Very proud of @eliotcfrilli, his staff and his players. Excellent achievement first season. I’m convinced we’ll enjoy more success in the future and develop more players through the pathway.”
Calcot need just one point from their remaining two fixtures to secure the runners-up spot following a 3-2 win at Sandhurst Town U23s on Saturday.
