We still don’t know who is going to be relegated along with Egham Town, but we are now certain of who our playoff contenders will be. Westfield, in fifth, made certain of their place today with a four-two victory over second place Bracknell Town- and if the positions of the top five remain unchanged will have earned themselves a psychological advantage as the two meet again at Larges Lane in the playoffs. But we are five days away from having to have that discussion!
Aaron Watson and Elijah Simpson put Field two up, only for Joel Jacobs to reduce the arrears just before the break. An own goal then levelled matters, but the home side were able to reassert their dominance, Tinashe Nkoma and Dylan Cascoe scoring numbers three and four.
Cheshunt are third, above Marlow on goals scored only after a five-one thumping of Hertford Town at Hertingfordbury Park. Jason Hallett gave the Ambers the lead only for Daniel Bond to equalise after the break, but from then onwards the visitors went goal mad, Shane Cojocarel with two, Brian Moses and Taylor Miles rounding things off.
Marlow are fourth, with an identical goal difference to Cheshunt but having scored ten goals fewer, and they went to Northwood and came away with a two-one victory. Kelvin Bossman put Marlow ahead in the very first minute, and Charlie Samuel made it two ten minutes before the break, Tremayne Charles making the closing stages interesting by pulling one back for Woods six minutes from time.
At the bottom, it will still be one of Molesey, South Park or Hertford Town who will go down with Egham Town. The Moles are two points behind their two rivals after a nil-nil draw at Chipstead, whilst Sparks are behind Town on goal difference, although now level on points after they held Tooting and Mitcham United to a draw, Charlie Pitcher putting them ahead only for Hady Ghandour to get a second half equaliser. The Moles will have to beat Northwood next weekend and hope that Hertford Town lose at Bedfont Sports, whilst South Park know that a draw at Waltham Abbey will see them living very dangerously indeed, as the Moles have a better goal difference.
Roddy Lemba, Cosmin Miron and Lawrence Neuruba scored for FC Romania as they confirmed their safety by defeating Egham 3-1. Kiemon Robinson pulled a goal back for the Sarnies.
Our champions, Hayes & Yeading United, took the lead through Mitchal Gough but were pegged back by an equaliser for Hanwell Town, Olly Duffy earning the Geordies a point. After the match United received their winners trophy, and our image, from Montimagemedia, shows the Champions celebrating with their Under 15 side, who won the Middlesex FA Youth League. Chalfont St Peter and Uxbridge shared the same scoreline, with two late goals- the first from Uxbridge, through Tyrone Pink, the second for the Saints, Keaton August getting an added time equaliser.
Ware and Waltham Abbey shared five goals, the Abbotts getting the extra one and leaving Wodson Park with the points. Jordon Watson gave Ware the lead only for Abbey to hit back with three, Malik Nosike and two from Ellis Brown doing the damage.
Finally, a Mark Bitmead double saw Ashford Town defeat Bedfont Sports two-one. Charlie Postance had earlier given Sports the lead.
