What a finish to the season!  Our game had absolutely everything, including goals, medical drama, late comebacks and the the final wait to know if we had secured promotion.

The final game day saw four sides - ourselves, Kirton Town, Boston College and Horncastle Res all with a chance of finishing anywhere from 1st to 4th.  Our only target was to secure a win, that would ensure we were definitely in with the best chance.  Our 10 goal advantage from last week certainly put us in a great position, and we knew that a win would boost that goal difference overall.

We went into half time with a 3 goal advantage, courtesy of Keiran Rayner, Dan Wager and Keaton Grainger playing perhaps our best football of the season so far.  On 55 minutes everything changed when Jack Minor in goal collapsed. The referee was quick to stop the game and, thanks to both our own Arun Gray and Friskney's Harry Ralph, Jack was attended to immmediately.  It was established an ambulance was required such was the severity of jack's condition.  Friskney as a club rallied and brought tarpauline sheets to cover Jack, Arun and Harry to shield them from the rain.  A great gesture. An ambulance arrived and Jack was taken into the back for assessment where he stayed for the next 2 hours!  Fortunately he was discharged just before 6 o clock and is awaiting further medical assessment.

Following the restart, Friskney came out of the blocks and hit us quickly and relentlessly.  The waves of attack continued but thank to the efforts of the defence, they came to nought.  When they did finally breach the United goal, it seemed to bring us back to life.  We fought back and, thanks to a post and line clearance the Friskney goal remained intact.  It was end to end stuff from that point on with both sides having chances.  A last-gasp Jamie Lyall challenge denied a clear shot on goal to keep the scores as they were.  The final whistle brought little in the way of celebration from United as our thoughts were with Jack and also, we didn't know the scores from the other games.

After what seemed like an eternity, the scores trickled in and it showed we had done what we needed to gain promotion.  It was a hard fought campaign and one which saw a fantastic end to the season.

Congratulations to Kirton Town for winning the league and commiserations to both Horncastle Res and Boston College for being so close.

It's All On the Final Game!

It's All On the Final Game!

What an end of season this is proving to be! Going into the last game, we can finish anywhere from 1st to 4th, it all depends on what we do and what the other three teams do.  There are so many permutations of what can happen based on who wins and by how many.

Our result yesterday certainly helped our case with a huge 10 goal margin taking us to the top of the GD, it all comes down to what we do next week.  Sit tight, it's going to be a busy 90 minutes.  We travel to Froskney who, by losing yesterday effectively ended their title and promotion chances but, this is a local derby and they will be up for it.

The League As It Stands

The League As It Stands

This is how the league looks today.  We currently sit second, but have 2 games in hand. One point behind us is Kirton who have played the same amount of games. 5 points behind Kirton are Boston College but they too have a game in hand which, if they won would take them to 2 points behind Kirton.  One point behind them are Friskney. As you can see, the table is very tight.

Two teams are promoted from this league into the Premier league.  It is likely to be between 4 or 5 teams - everything depends on these last few games.  For us, it is simple to understand, win the three remaining games we have and the title is ours.  The reality is that one of those games is against Kirton Town - fellow title-chasers and, as we have seen a strong side who will be as determined as we are to take the three points.

We are without a game this Saturday but others are in action:

Boston College welcome Old Doningtonians, Kirton Town play Skegness Town Res in the cup but are in league action three days later as they too welcome Old Doningtonians.  It's tight, very tight. 

The Last Four Games!

The Last Four Games!

We now have four games remaining in the league and it couldn't be tighter. A single point is all there is between ourselves and our nearest rival - Kirton Town.  Just behind them are Boston College.  This season is definitely going to be tight at the top.  Two teams will gain promotion but realistically it could be anyone from the top 6!

The next few weeks ill see the final table take shape. We have some very tough fixtures ahead of us, including one against Kirton Town.
