Langold FC have got a hand on the Division Two title after an 8-0 mauling of Harworth Pavilion, securing promotion to Division One for the first time in their 15 year history.

This leaves Shireoaks Sports needing maximum points against Breakers Wasps and Three Lions and also a winning margin of seven goals or more to secure the title.

Langold Lakeside still hold an eight point lead, leaving Shireoaks needing win their three games in hand.
