Week 25 Round Up - Sunday 3 March 2019
Happy Easter everyone!
A very brief update this week, as fixtures were voluntary, so just 6 teams with 3 referees out on the pitches this morning while everyone else was at home with their families enjoying lots of chocolate.
Starting in the Supreme Engraving Senior Division, a shock at the top as Woolwich 90 travelled to Eltham Phoenix who in recent weeks have been inconsistent to say the least, but they stepped up today and Woolwich 90 suffered their first league defeat since the first week of their season. Darren Moorcroft scoring the only goal.
In Division Two, the title race is over and congratulations to Kent Wanderers on securing the title without actually playing. Bayswater RK travelled to Springhill United Reserves and a superb Danny Shaw goal complimented an excellent rearguard action to secure all three points for the home side.
In the Leader Trophy a David Scott penalty was enough to send AFC Kingfisher 6 points clear at the top of the West Group with a 1-0 win over Borussia Heath 15.
That's it for the week!
Some midweek action this week, on Wednesday Springhill United host Club Santacruzense de Londres at Meridian Sports with a 7:45 kick off, so if you are at a loose end, pop down and give the teams some support. Entrance Free.
One word this weekend......ICE!
The weekend's fixture list was totally decimated, with just 5 matches surviving.
In the Amalgamated Lifts Ltd Premier Division, Welling Town Woolwich leapt up to 4th spot with an emphatic 11-2 win over bottom side New Life United with goals from Joseph Tamlyn (3), James Golding (2), Lemarl Hubbard (2), Ricky Hepburn, Mustafa Karababa, William Muckle and Ryan Robinson while a Patrick Ward goal secured all 3 points for Springhill United at Turk Ocagi Limassol Russellers.
In the Supreme Engraving Senior Division a little foresight from Maroon, saw their game against Eltham SF moved from grass to 3G with a 1pm kick off late in the week, and it was Eltham SF who came out winners thanks to 2 goals from Charlie Gaish and one from Toby Brown. Chris Rostek hit a double for Maroon XI.
Nothing survived the big freeze in Division One, while just two survived in Division 2 with a hat-trick from David Scott securing a 3-1 win for AFC Kingfisher against Borussia Heath 15. Kingfisher remain in the bottom 2, but have closed the gap on today's opponents in 8th spot to just 3 points. Just above them Springhill United Reserves hosted Vanbrugh on the 3G at Meridian in a 1230 kick off with 4 goals and the points being shared. William Tansley and Charlie Troke on target for Springhill while Rhys Patterson and Luke Street hit the goals for Vanbrugh.
