Barking, after leading Division ‘C’ for the
majority of the season, have been crowned champions after winning their final
game of the season. There were also two other games played as we wrap up the
Barking were able to wrap up the Division after
defeating title rivals Bishop’s Stortford 3-2. By half time, they were 3-1 up
as goals from Marcus Fadina, Christopher Rodrigues and Josh O’Shea made sure
they had the Division sealed. Stortford made it interesting towards the end
when Kieran Bonney’s effort from the right flank dipped over the Barking
keeper, and made it 3-2, but it wasn’t to be as they lost for the fifth time
this season. Stortford have one more game to play where they can nip into 3rd
place with a win in their last fixture.
Brightlingsea Regent, who finished in 2nd place,
congratulated Barking on their win over Twitter;
“Congratulations to Barking under 19s for
winning the league. We tried our best to make it interesting but over the whole
season you guys were more consistent.”
Elsewhere in the Division, AFC Sudbury decimated
Lowestoft Town 16-0. It was a positive end for Sudbury as they finish the
season in 5th place, with 9 wins out of their 18 games. Lowestoft will just
want the season to end as they’ve only picked up one point throughout the
entire season, they will also finish the season with the worst goal difference
across all the Divisions, and they still have one game to play.
Finally, Maldon & Tiptree’s final games saw
them overcome Ipswich Wanderers 4-2. Maldon & Tiptree’s season has been a
average one, finishing with 8 wins and 8 losses. The result for them also
secured them 6th place. Ipswich will have to settle for 9th place but they have
one more match to play and will want to end the season on a high.
There are only two games left for this season,
as Lowestoft Town host Ipswich Wanderers on the 27th April. While Bishop’s
Stortford will take on Boreham Wood Whites.
