It could all come down to Wetherby Athletic’s final league game in the York Minster Engineering League Division 4 to determine who the champions will be! Will it be the traveling Tangerines, or will home side Malt Shovel leapfrog above us and pip us to the title? The match has a 2pm kick-off time and the weather should be light cloud!
It’s been a fantastic season for the York 4 side and throughout it we have seen some great matches, especially against Saturday’s opponents Malt Shovel and Bubwith White Swan, who reside in 3rd place, but now it must end and champions must be crowned!
Whilst a draw would still be good enough for us, it would mean that Malt Shovel would need to draw or lose their last fixture against Huntington a week later for us to be absolutely sure of the title, so it’s best to get it right first time! However, it goes without saying (but I will do it anyway) that it will be a massive test for the lads, but one that they are confident that they can do!
The last time that the two clubs met, the game ended in an amazing 4-4 draw (our goals coming from Chris Plews with a brace and Matt Connolly and Alex Bairstow both getting a goal each!) so we know that both teams are capable of finding the net! On their ground, Malt Shovel have won six of the eight games played and lost the remaining two. They have found the back of the net 37 times (average 4.6 goal per game) and have been breached 19 times (average 2.4 goals per game).
The match will be refereed by Mr Kendall Edgley and should you wish to go and watch the team play, then the address you will need is Dennison Road, Selby, North Yorkshire, YO8 8AN.
