The final day of the Premier Division season it should have been, but the weather had other ideas meaning an extension of the campaign for Hadley/Stotfold and London Tigers/Aylesbury United whose games were postponed.

Champions Royston Town won 4-2 at home to Haringey Borough in front of their season’s best crowd of 503, with league top scorer Kaan Fehmi amongst the scorers – his 32nd league goal of the season.

The Crows were 4-0 up after 51 minutes thanks to a brace from John McGrandles and a Luke Robins strike before Fehmi’s effort, only for Haringey to pull two back late on through Chris Morgan and, in stoppage time, Dean Fenton.

With Tring Athletic drawing 3-3 at home to Oxhey Jets – whose youngster Cornelius Keating scored his first senior goal for the club – Aylesbury United are guaranteed 5th spot, and could climb to 4th by virtue of Haringey’s defeat.

Dunstable Town won their final game as they came from behind to win 3-2 at home to Leverstock Green. Max Farrelly gave the visitors an early lead, three goals in ten second half minutes from Joe Bruce, Nathan Frater and a Lee Roache penalty swung the game, before Paul Insley reduced the deficit in his manager Steve Heath’s last game in charge of Leverstock.

Third-placed town neighbours, AFC Dunstable, shared a 2-2 draw at third-bottom Holmer Green, who finish the season four points clear of the relegation places. Dunstable were twice behind, goals from Gareth Williams and O’Donnell, levelled by Tony Burnett and a Wayne Mills penalty.

Hertford Town endured a second successive 5-1 to end their season in miserable fashion at Hillingdon Borough, where Lee Armitt scored a first half hat-trick.

At the bottom, Hanwell Town ensured they finished second bottom with a 4-2 home win over Biggleswade United. Sean Murray gave United a 6th minute lead, but goals from Glenn Garner, a brace from Myles Stephenson and Dean Wharman turned the game 4-1 in Hanwell’s favour, before a late consolation from Biggleswade’s Martin Wilson.

Hatfield’s disappointing season was finally put to bed with another miserable defeat, as they went down 4-1 at fellow strugglers over the campaign, Harefield United. Ben Barton and Jack Reader put Harefield 2-0 up in twenty minutes, and although Ashley Dray hit back for Hatfield, two late Keemo Maphela strikes gave the Hares a big win.

In the final two fixtures with little to play for, Broxbourne Borough and St. Margaretsbury shared six goals, with St. Mags’ Leigh Rose firing two in a 3-3 draw, whilst Berkhamsted won 3-1 at Colney Heath.
