Swans out to secure top six finish

Newport Pagnell Town end their United Counties League Premier Division season this Saturday, looking to clinch a top six finish.

The Swans face Harborough at Willen Road a week after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Quorn – the only side that could still deny them of a top six finish.

Although the draw meant Darren Lynch’s men missed a golden opportunity to secure sixth place, it extended their unbeaten run to seven games in a strong end to the season.

In fact Quorn are the only team to have taken points off the Swans since early March when they lost to Harborough.

Revenge for Newport this Saturday would guarantee a top six finish, but anything less would open the door to Quorn who visit Cogenhoe.

Olney Town will finish in a very respectable ninth place in UCL Division One and sign off with a tough home match against Oadby Town.

The Nurserymen lost 1-0 to Bourne Town on Saturday, but the signs are good for a better season next time.

New Bradwell St Peter had a creditable 1-1 draw away at Southall on Saturday, but still ended their South Midlands League Division One season without a single win.

It was also a disappointing end to the campaign for Stony Stratford Town as they were hammered 11-0 at Bedford.

Stony finish in mid-table, a few places above Cranfield United who were beaten 2-0 by Sun Postal Sports.

The season isn’t quite over for Stony who take on Kings Langley in the Division One Cup final at Tring Athletic this Saturday.

In Division Two, Wolverton Town lost 2-0 to Risborough Rangers and Old Bradwell had a 3-1 win at Caddington.
