We are now reaching the business end of the season with titles, promotions and cup final places being confirmed almost every week at present. This weekend was no different as three of our clubs had promotions confirmed.

In the Premier Division, time is running out for St Francis to maintain their Premier Division status following a 4-0 reverse to London Falcons at the weekend leaving the Saints with just two remaining games to beat the drop.

Kitgum Boys were held to a 3-3 draw at St Johns Deaf on Saturday in Division One as goals from Halwant Kerkouyi, Huseyin Er and Marios Costi secured a point for St John’s. That point was enough to seal promotion for Grove United who now can’t finish lower than second position in the table although their eyes are firmly on winning the title outright. Attempting to stop them in their tracks will be Three Colts who ran out 4-0 winners over Flyers to close the gap on the leaders to nine points with three games in hand. Forest Green moved off the bottom on goal difference following a 3-0 home win over Glendale.

In Division Two, Inter Plaistow faced a crucial last fixture of the season as they needed to win to maintain a chance at a top two finish. Opponents and cup finalists, Chingford Athletic Reserves, had a different idea however as Aaron French’s goal carried the visitors to a 1-0 win. That result confirmed places for Singh Sabha Barking and London APSA in Division One next season with the latter holding the destiny of the outright league title in their hands with one game to play.

The Fenton Cup’s last semi final place was booked on Saturday as Grove United travelled to the other side of the hedge in Forest Road to face Premier Division outfit, Melbourne Sports. It was the Division One leaders who prevailed against their higher league opponents as Grove ran out 2-0 winners with goals from the league’s leading marksman, Harry Chalk, adding to a Billy Rongay goal to book a home semi-final against Rainham Working Mens Club.

There was another big scalp in the Premier Division Cup quarter final where May & Baker EC A, knocked out the county cup finalists, Chingford Athletic, winning 2-1 with goals from Alec Simm and Lewis Edmunds to book themselves a home semi-final against Chingford Town. Also victorious in booking a place in the semi finals were Rainham Working Mens Club who saw off the efforts of Buckhurst Hill Under 21s in a 4-0 victory. The reward for Rainham is a home semi-final where they will face Jolof Sports on 9th April.
