League strugglers Fairford pulled themselves off the bottom of the Hellenic League Premier Division table on Saturday with a shock 2-1 win at Ardley.

Ryan Brooks, Ardley’s in-form striker, grabbed Ardley’s goal, while Charlie Grabe and Jon Gabirondo were Fairford’s scorers.

Oxford City Nomads are within touching distance of the title following a 3-0 win over Abingdon Town.

Ardley’s season is now complete, finishing a creditable third place in the Premier Division.

Ardley U18’s also completed their Allied Counties League season, losing 4-3 in a competitive battle at Holmer Green. The U18’s were due to play their last game of the season against Oxford City yesterday, Thursday, in the final of the Oxfordshire FA Joe Roughton U18 Youth Cup.
