FC Wymeswold confirmed their promotion to Leics Senior League Premier by clinching the Division One title on Tuesday evening.
A 3-1 win at Anstey Nomads Reserves gave them an unassailable five-point lead over rivals Ashby Ivanhoe Knights with one game of the season left.
Goals from Gus Gentleman, Brandon Hands and Sam Richards sealed the title and made Ashby’s 6-1 win at Holwell Sports Reserves redundant.
But it was a contrasting evening for Asfordby FC who ended a tough Senior League Premier campaign with a 6-2 derby defeat at Cottesmore Amateurs.
Lee Mann’s side finished second-bottom as Cottesmore extended their unbeaten run to 14 matches thanks to Tom Pope’s five-goal haul.
Liam Chapman and Alex Johnson, from the penalty spot, replied for Asfordby in either half.
“The first half was one of the poorest I think we have played since I’ve been in charge,” said Mann.
“A few very strong words at half-time brought out a better performance in the second half, but overall it still fell very short of my expectations, and the players’ expectations, too.”
