Ti­tles up for grabs ahead of Su­per­sixes fi­nale

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Homes -

THE fi­nal week of the Win­ter League sea­son in the Ash­ford Su­per­sixes is primed for a stun­ning fi­nale.

All three di­vi­sions are to be set­tled in the fi­nal games with the top two in the Premier League and Divi­sion 1 go­ing head-to-head.

Iron­i­cally, Premier League Bliby and Divi­sion 1 side Mis­fits were both knocked off top spot af­ter 1-0 de­feats in the penul­ti­mate round of matches.

Lowly Spirit of 66 pulled off a 1-0 victory over Bliby with a goal from James Crump that boosted their own hopes of avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion.

As a re­sult, A Team leapfrogged Bliby to set up a thrilling cli­max to the sea­son as the pair meet at North School to de­cide the ti­tle.

Bethers­den won the mid-ta­ble scrap against Mean Ma­chine 3-1 and Shane Sims scored a hat-trick for the vic­tors.

Third-placed Ham­mers could still claim a run­ners-up spot in the fi­nal round of matches. In their penul­ti­mate match, they beat United One Two 2-1.

Divi­sion 1 leaders Mis­fits slipped up and handed over the lead to Wills­boro.

The Mis­fits were beaten by Sellindge FC cour­tesy of a Lee Miles goal, while Wills­boro took ad­van­tage and went top with a 3-1 win over PGC.

The Divi­sion 3 ti­tle has also gone down to the wire with the All­stars hold­ing the ad­van­tage af­ter their 3-1 win over Chog­gers.

All­stars face third placed Wyeld Boys in the fi­nal game.

The Boys have a slightly in­fe­rior goal dif­fer­ence along with sec­ond placed Team WBM but big wins for ei­ther could still leave the top spot up for grabs.

Team WBM went sec­ond af­ter goals from Dave Fisher and Mark Thomp­son sealed a 2-0 win over Wye Bova.

Alex Far­rell scored both goals as Wyeld Boys clinched a 2-1 win over The Maulers. THE FIVE group leaders in the Ash­ford 5-a-side Cham­pi­ons League are all Premier League sides.

In Group A, Wraight Boys moved three points clear af­ter a 9-0 win over Ash­ford 5s.

Dan Corn­nell net­ted five of the goals and there was a hat-trick for Rob Green­field. Also on tar­get was Lee Milton.

Mis­fitts are sec­ond on six points af­ter beat­ing Al­lied 3-1. Goals were scored by Zak Mor­gan (2) and Jak Knight.

Group B leaders TDL have three wins from three. Their lat­est suc­cess was a 3-0 win over Hardly Ath­letic. Rob­bie Oven­den scored twice in the win.

Two teams are tied at the top of Group C with Ham­street ahead of Baker Boys on goal dif­fer­ence. Bob Tan­ner and Dan Rose scored two each in Baker Boys’ 4-1 win over Libyans.

Ham­street beat Pot Blacks 9-4 with Joe Spicer net­ting five of the goals and Terry King three.

Group D leaders Southloco’s Nicky Rivett scored a hat-trick in a 4-2 win over Sut­ton Saints.

Fat Ox lead the way in Group E fol­low­ing their 8-1 win over sec­ond placed No­chos.
