Southern Premier League Weekend Round Up


Given Hereford are set to be playing in the Southern Premier League next season, here's a round up of yesterday's action.

Chippenham will be promoted and Cinderford relegated, but there remains a battle for a place in the play-offs with Leamington, Hitchin, Merthyr and Slough the likely candidates although Banbury still have a slight chance.

At the bottom, nothing is for certain as yet.
  
Chippenham Town were crowned champions of the EVO-STIK League Southern's Premier Division before anyone had even kicked a ball on Saturday, writes Pitchero's David Richardson.
Second-place Leamington's 2-0 loss at Biggleswade Town on Good Friday after two goals either side of half-time from Connor Hall and Tony Burnett dashed the Brakes title hopes and handed the Bluebirds the trophy.
The champions lost for the first time in 23 games on Saturday at home to struggling St Neots Town, who gave their survival hopes a big boost with three points to climb four points above the drop.
Jevani Brown gave the visitors the lead before half-time and then netted his second from the penalty spot after the break, Alex Ferguson pulling one back for the hosts late on.

Cirencester Town pulled off a shock at Slough Town, winning 2-0 to keep their survival hopes alive while their hosts remain in the play-off positions, but slipped to fifth. Danny Gudger’s second half brace kept the visitors four points adrift of safety.
Cambridge City moved out of the relegation zone with a 1-0 win over Dorchester Town, leapfrogging Kings Langley, who could only draw with Redditch United.
Hayes & Yeading capped a fine day for the clubs battling the drop with a 2-0 win at Dunstable Town, leaving them two points adrift.

Ryan Prosser’s second half double gave Merthyr Town a crucial 2-0 victory over St Ives Town to keep their play-off push on track and move up to fourth.
Hitchin Town remained third after they held top five chasing Banbury United to a 1-1 draw, a goal from Robbie Burns nine minutes from time earning the Canaries a point.
Already relegated Cinderford Town were beaten 3-0 at mid-table Basingstoke Town, taking their goals conceded tally to 103.
Elsewhere, Kings Lynn Town drew 1-1 with seventh placed Frome Town while Stratford Town enjoyed a 4-1 win at home to Kettering Town.
