Worksop Borough will be crowned Worksop Sunday League Division One champions this weekend, if they beat St Joseph’s.

In a long standing rivalry that goes back over a decade, St Joseph’s will hope to prevent Borough from taking the title, avoiding a repeat of last season’s finish that saw St Joe’s beaten by Borough.

If Borough drop any points then Manton Club JFC will be crowned champions, providing they take four points from their final two games, which are against recent title hopefuls Stanley Street Galacticos and St Joseph’s.

Galacticos picked up three points last weekend, thanks to a 5-2 beating of Greendale Oak away from home.

In what has been a difficult season due to player injuries and players leaving the club Borough manager Lee Howard should take a whole lot of credit regardless of the outcome.

Veteran Howard has played several games himself this year along with two or three others who are approaching 50 years old, only being able to field a bare 11 on some occasions.

Last year’s historic treble should never be overlooked but if Worksop Borough are crowned 2014/15 Division One league champions this would be a great achievement for Howard and his team.

Last weekend saw Invitational Cup and Trophy wins for Harworth Pavilion and Langold Lakeside respectively.

Harworth’s victory came in Group B away at Breakers Wasps, while Langold Lakeside beat Woodhouse Inn 6-2 in the Invitational Trophy competition.

In Division Three, Three Lions and Lokomotive Millhouse played out a 3-3 draw.

The Worksop Sunday League are looking for new teams to join, ahead of the 2015/16 football season.

League secretary Dave Crisp has been on the committee since 1970 and he insists the Worksop League have done all they can to make football cost effective: “We offer the cheapest league and pitch fees out of all the leagues affiliated to the Sheffield and Hallamshire CFA.”

Anyone wishing to join the league can contact Dave Crisp on 01909481248 and Rob Horne on 07789 646199.
