Singh Sabha are the new leaders in the Premier Division after a 5-2 win against Britwell in the Showcase Match at Burnham on Friday night.

The defending champions had to win to go above the long-time leaders on goals difference and, despite a spirited fightback from Britwell, secured three crucial points in the title race.

Goals from Mubarak Bashir and Hasan Husain gave Singh Sabha a clear lead heading into the break, but Britwell fought back to level the scores in the second period.

A victory could prove vital in the race for the crown and Singh Sabha left it late to gain a success, goals in the final 10 minutes from Karim Chaibi plus substitutes Nadeer Shafi and Harry Laflin.

Both teams are now level on 26 points with five matches remaining this season, with third-placed KS Gryf two points behind having played one game more.

Old Windsor bridged the gap on the top half of the table with a 3-0 win at Hype Train thanks to goals from Joe Richards, substitute Louis Maggs and Chris Tierney.

Goals either side of the break from Jack Low and George Price gave Cressex all three points against Stoke Poges. The points mean Cressex have moved off bottom spot, relegating Hype Train to the foot of the league table.
