The First team ended a 6 year wait when they sealed the 2016 Premier League title for the eighth time (see Honours List) on an exciting day of action at both Royal Road and Edgemead.
Going into the match leading Norway Parks by 4 points, with 3 to play, the match against Parks had all to play for and we took the lead early with a 3rd minute penalty, only to be pegged back towards the end of the first stanza. In truth, Parks upped the ante in the second period and we were holding on for for a while, in fairness with clear cut chances on both sides, until a thunderbolt from 30m out, a goal fit to win any title, sealed the deal with 5 minutes to go, 2-1 up.
With Edgemead edging out Hellenic in a 4-3 thriller, it means we now hold an unassailable lead over both Norway Parks and Hellenic and can enjoy the final two league outings as Champions !!
Well done to Graham Purdy and his charges for a tremendous season which has climaxed with a thriller and a well deserved title.
In earlier action, the Second team easily overcame the Parks second stringers by 5 goals to 1.
