Though football season feels like it finished long ago, there were still matters to be addressed last week in the North Bucks and District Football League.

In Division Two, Scot Youth needed Comet MK to lose both remaining games and hope for a significant goal-difference swing to win the title.

It wasn’t to be though. The sides played out a seven goal thriller, with Comet coming out on top by the odd goal, securing with it the Division Two crown. And they were in party mood in their final game of the season and continued their fine goal-scoring form as they thrashed Stantonbury Social Elite 5-0.

City Colts could have put a spanner in the works for Grendon Rangers as they chased second place in the Premier League. But two first half strikes from Leonard and Perna meant Colts were chasing the game. Cole pulled one back in the second half, but couldn’t overturn the deficit and lost 2-1.

Rangers were awarded their final game against Silverstone who failed to raise a side. Potterspury were crowned champions of the Premier Division, with Loughton Manor finishing a respectable third while MK Titans and Great Linford both finished in the bottom three.

Bow Brickhill snatched third place in the Intermediate Division courtesy of two big wins at the end of the campaign. First, they saw off rivals Wicken in a 5-3 thriller before hammering AFC Santander 6-0. They finish third, 12 points off title winners Woburn Sands.

Denbigh Sports & Social climbed to ninth with their 4-0 win over Santander and an 8-0 drubbing of Brackley Sports Reserves.
