KING’S HEAD KEEP UP THE PRESSURE ON LEAGUE LEADERS

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): The King’s Head bounced back from their shock 4-2 defeat in the final of the recent Neil Clark Memorial Trophy to beat Wrockwardine Wood Football Club by the same score in the Newport & District Pool League.

 

The result moved the Chetwynd End side to within two points of the Audco A at the top of the table, but the leaders’ match against Navigation A was postponed and they have three games in hand over their chasing rivals – two of which are against the team who beat them in the Neil Clark Memorial play-off for third-place, Lilleshall Sports Centre.

 

Audco B were awarded a 4-2 victory over Navigation A and the Wheatsheaf earned a similar result at Norbury against the Junction B to maintain their climb up the table. The Shakespeare B entertained the Navy Club at Upper Bar and earned all three points for a 4-2 win to close the gap on their Bellman’s Yard rivals at the foot of the league table to just four points.

 

The recent Champions League final decimated week 24 fixtures, although the all-Audco contest went ahead as planned, with the A team crushing the B team, 6-0.

 

The Railway Tavern also earned a 4-2 win against the Junction B in a rearranged game, but four sides were awarded 4-2 walkover wins because of the late postponement of their matches by the opposing side. The latest cut-off for a match postponement has now been put at 6pm for the remainder of the season.

 

Could the seven team captains who have not paid their annual fees, please arrange for monies to be left with Ian Roberts at the Railway Tavern as soon as possible, as the league co-ordinator needs to finalise end-of-season league awards. All match results are to be sent immediately by text message to 07831 123153.
