Southern League champions Weston and Tamworth play one final game this season, as both sides hope to win the Southern League Champions Shield at the Optima Stadium this Saturday, 29th April. The match kicks off at 3pm.
The Seagulls, of course, clinched the Premier South title after the exciting win over Hendon on April 18, while Tamworth claimed the Premier Central championship after their 3-0 victory at Redditch United last Saturday.
Tamworth and Coalville Town were tied on 86 points going into last Saturday’s fixtures, but Tamworth were ahead on goal difference. A comfortable win for The Lambs would have therefore guaranteed promotion, and they did just that after goals from Ty Deacon, Kyle Finn and Jamie Jellis.
With four games of the season left, Coalville were leading Tamworth by six points but The Lambs won all four games to pip the Leicestershire side at the post, in what was clearly a closely-fought race at the top of the Central Division.
We take this opportunity to congratulate Tamworth on also winning promotion, and we wish them well for next season in the National League North.
With both sides doing so superbly this season, it should be a good match at the Optima this Saturday, with plenty of outstanding quality on the pitch in this showpiece game.
