TWENTYTEN need just a point from their final game of the season to win the Basingstoke and District League Division One title after they beat title rivals AFC Berg 4-0 last Saturday.

Their final game is away at Tadley Calleva A this coming weekend.

Against Berg their task was made easier when they faced only nine men after Dan Deadman and then goalkeeper Torrin Kirridge was sent off, but by then they were two goals ahead.

It was goalless in the first half, but they were on top and only a fine save from Kirrage stopped Christian Cox scoring and Dan Hancock also failed in a one on one with the goalkeeper.

On came Ryan Lupton for the second half and he made an instance impact by heading home a cross from Cox in the 55th minute for the lead and then he scored again following a through ball from Jack Clarke. Deadman then departed for dissent and he was followed by a red card for Kirrage after pulling down Lupton and Jack Clarke hit the post.

Arnold made it 3-0 in the 70th minute after being put through by Lucas Pickett and Lupton completed his hat-trick with a header from Jake Tanner’s assist.

Silchester Village remain top after winning their final game. It was against bottom of table Overton United A, with a 5-1 win at Berrydown.

All six goals were scored in the first half, however their only hope of taking the title is to see Twentyten lose at Tadley.

They swept into a three goals lead by the 24th minute with goals from Kye Theodore, Chris Cairney and Carl Russell.

Overton replied when Gavin Alexander intercepted a back pass t to pull it back to 3-1, but further strikes from Jack Nesbitt and Peter White saw them well ahead and but for excellent saves from the Overton goalkeeper, there would have been plenty more.

It looks as if it will be an unsatisfactory finish in Division Two this season due to the scheduled match between Renegades and Oakridge was called off after Renegades could not raise a team.

As the match was not played with Renegades at fault, the three points will be awarded to Oakridge and will hand the title to Overton United B providing they get at least one point when they play Chineham this coming Saturday and even if they lose, the superior goal difference will see Overton B top the table.

Saturday is an important day for the Twentyten FC, as not only have their first team involved in a title clinching match at Tadley at 2.30pm their Reserve team travel to the AFC Portchester ground to play Coal Exchange in the final of the Hampshire Junior B Cup with the kick off at 11 am.

Their opponents are based in Emsworth and play in the West Sussex League Division One South, where they will finish third this season.

On Tuesday evening (7.30pm) at the Andover New Street Ground, AFC Aldermaston A will meet Andover New Street Swifts in the final of the North Hants Saturday Junior Cup.

To reach the final AFC Aldermaston A beat AFC Berg Reserves 2-0 in the quarter Final and won 4-3 against Tadley Calleva A in the semi-finals.
