Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

JOE VALLER’S late win­ner helped Bliby lift the Ash­ford Su­per­sixes Premier Divi­sion ti­tle in a dra­matic fi­nale to the sea­son at fEs­sella Road on Thurs­day night.

The for­mer Ash­ford Town and Can­ter­bury City player net­ted in the 2-1 win over for­mer leaders A Team who started the evening only need­ing a draw to win the cham­pi­onship them­selves.

Bliby fin­ished a point clear, with Ham­mers who beat Spirit of 66 by the same score, in third place .

Richard Boor­man fired Bliby in front early on but Car­lum Ma­cloud lev­elled for A Team early in the sec­ond half, who were happy to shut up shop af­ter that.

Valler, though, struck with five min­utes left, his 20-yard ef­fort giv­ing the keeper no chance.

In other games, Bethers­den fin­ished with a 2-0 win over rel­e­gated Stunts – Shane Smith and Joe McKen­zie were on tar­get.

Mean Ma­chine beat United One Two 3-0.

Craig Mitchell grabbed the late equaliser as Willes­bor­ough drew 1-1 against near­est ri­vals Mis­fits to clinch the Divi­sion 1 ti­tle.

The game was a tough af­fair, with few chances cre­ated by ei­ther side.

Goonies fin­ished fourth af­ter a 3-1 victory over Brabourne, with goals from Josh Hatcher, Joe Mort and Mike Cox.

The Divi­sion 2 sea­son still has a month to run but bot­tom side Wye Bova caused one of the sea­son’s big­gest up­sets with a sur­prise 2-1 win over Hill­bil­lies – their first victory in 14 starts

Pas In­treri and Lee Col­lett were Wye Bova’s scor­ers.

Tom Poyner and Leigh Sim­mons earned Divi­sion 2 leaders All Stars a 2-0 win over Wyeld Boys.

Sam and Ben Stro­ver net­ted as sec­ond-placed TN Stars eased to a 4-1 victory over Maulers, while Chog­gers drew 0-0 with Welsh Dragons.
