Romford celebrate their title win


Season drawing to a close

London Div 2NE

Enfield (7-0-13) v Romford & GP (15-1-4)

Park will look to extend a six-game unbeaten run as their season draws to a close.

They need two bonus-point wins to have any real hope of leapfrogging Braintree into second place and were comfortable 26-0 winners when Enfield visited Crow Lane earlier in the season.

Braintree hold a seven-point lead over Mark Collins’ men but face the tricky trip to Canvey, before ending their campaign against in-form Chelmsford, who are unbeaten in 17.

Park host Canvey on the final day of the season and will hope there is still something to play for.

London Div 3NE

Campion (8-0-12) v South Woodham Ferrers (8-0-11)

Last weekend’s 31-21 win at South Woodham gave Campion a massive boost in their battle to avoid the drop.

Victory lifted Luke Maguire’s men five points clear of the bottom two and they meet their rivals again at Cottons Park in a quick return fixture.

Campion were “close to full strength” for the first time in several weeks and a repeat success will go a long way to ensuring their survival.

Upminster (9-1-10) v Wanstead (10-2-7)

Honours finished even at 22-22 when these two sides met in east London earlier in the season.

And only four points separates them now in the table, going into the final few games of the campaign.

Wanstead hold the edge in fifth place, but Upminster will welcome them to Hall Lane in confident mood following Senior Vase success over the Bank of England last weekend.

Essex Div 1

Billericay (11-1-5) v Old Cooperians (10-0-8)

Thumped 41-0 on their own patch when these two sides met last weekend, Coopers will be keen to prove themselves at Willowbrook.

Billericay are just four points back in fifth place, with a game in hand against bottom club Dagenham to come before both clubs face tricky finishes to the campaign against the top two.
