JUST 40 match points sep­a­rated win­ners Herne Hill Har­ri­ers and seventh-placed Bournemouth as the di­vi­sion con­tin­ues to be well-con­tested.

Se­cond-placed Kingston & Polytech­nic re­main ahead in the league ta­ble, two points clear of match win­ners Herne Hill as Kent slipped to fourth on the day but re­main in with a chance of pro­mo­tion. They had Chuk­wudi Onyia post a good 15.23m triple jump, his third league win of the year.

Win­ners Herne Hill had just three A-string vic­to­ries – 20-year-old Las­celles Hussey edged a close 800m in 1:55.69 and Marvin Popoola added the 200m in 21.54.

En­field & Haringey con­tin­ued their slide and who will join them in the drop is now be­tween Bournemouth, Craw­ley and Newquay & Par.

With pos­si­bly the small­est squad in all five di­vi­sions, N&P per­formed well af­ter a long trip.

En­field did, how­ever, have win­ners and their best was in the 100m where Ade Ade­wale posted 10.50 af­ter pad­dling through the pud­dles. They also had Ge­orge Vaughan take ad­van­tage of an il­le­gal wind to win the 110m hur­dles in 14.94 as well as tak­ing the re­lay but the for­mer Pre­mier­ship side had too many gaps in their team to make an im­pres­sion.
