FOOTBALL: The final matches of the Buckingham Autumn/Winter Buckingham 6-a-side League last Monday saw Swan Show beat Dilligaf United 6-1 to be confirmed league champions.

Fnishing in runners-up spot, AFC Brackley beat Lloyd Allstars 3-1.

After another shaky start which saw them 2-0 down within ten minutes, Nags Head came back strongly in the second half of their game to overcome New Beercelona 5-2.

Hardly Athletic obtained their expected win over FC Copenbadly with a hard fought 2-0 victory.

Crown & Glory were under pressure from the start against quality outfit Ken Bater’s Allstars whose mercurial Joe Townsend threatened to run riot but with ‘the Cat’ pulling off a half dozen super saves, C & G weathered the storm well and instead of the seemingly inevitable second half collapse went on to win 2-0, although had their striker up front converted a couple of the half dozen gilt-edged chances available, a much more emphatic score line could have been achieved.

The new Spring League starts next Monday, February 6. There are places for a further two teams if urgent contact is made with the league organiser Ray Peverall on 01908 562131.
