Comet MK won the Division Two title in dramatic fashion on Tuesday night when they hit back from 3-1 down to beat rivals Scot 4-3.

Two big wins in the space of a couple of days had set Comet up perfectly for their crunch clash with Scot – the second in a fortnight after their first meeting was abandoned due to crowd trouble.

A 6-1 win at Stantonbury Social Elite last Thursday was followed by a 5-1 win against Twyford United on Saturday as Comet continued to end the season in great form.

And they finally managed to win the title thanks to a late winner from Chris Pendry on Tuesday night. Neil Walton (2) and Mark Summerlin scored their earlier goals.

City Colts recorded a 2-0 Premier Division victory over Silverstone – two days after winning the Interdivisional Trophy with a 4-0 beating of Potterspury last week.

Bow Brickhill picked up a 2-1 win at Grendon Rangers in the Intermediate Division, while in Division One, Olney Town lost 3-1 to Wicken Sports Res and Cage Athletic fell 6-2 to University of Buckingham. In Division Two, St George’s beat Stantonbury 4-1.

Last midweek’s results saw a 7-0 success for Intermediate Division champions Woburn Sands against Brackley Sports Res, while Bow Brickhill lost 4-1 to Buckingham Town Res and AFC Santander were held to a 1-1 draw by Deanshanger.

There was also a 4-2 victory for AFC Santander over City Colts Res and 5-4 win for Bow Brickhill Res against Denbigh Hall Sports.

In Division One, Olney had a 1-1 draw with Deanshanger Res and Woughton were 6-3 winners at Stewkley, while St George’s beat Wing Village 2-0 in Division Two.

With the action coming to a close, congratulations go to Potterspury for winning the Premier Division title ahead of Loughton Manor, Woburn Sands for finishing top of the pile in the Intermediate, and Bow Brickhill Res for lifting the Division One crown.
