Felixstowe & Walton helped erase memories of a 7-2 FA Cup defeat at home to Brantham Athletic in August, with a 5-1 victory against the same opponents, in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division on Friday night.
The home supporters turned out in force again for this top-of-the-table clash, and went home happy as the Seasiders recorded a solid 3-0 win against a previously-unbeaten Histon side, at The Goldstar Ground.
Achilles provided a strong performance against visiting Haughley United, but it was all in vain as, elsewhere, Henley Athletic were crowned Senior Division champions with a 2-0 victory over Cranes Sports.
Despite Achilles boss Liam Hillyard being naturally disappointed, his side can take great credit in becoming the SIL Senior Division runners-up, following their first-ever Suffolk Senior Cup success at Portman Road.
Sporting ‘87 were unable to mark their 30th anniversary with a win against Claydon, allowing AFC Hoxne to claim the final promotion place into the Senior Division, with a 3-1 win over champions Benhall St Mary.
It’s beyond typical that I should have to write this column on the back of the 1-0 defeat at already-relegated Rotherham United after missing out on writing in the aftermath of that fantastic win over Newcastle United a week ago.
