The penultimate day of the Hitchin Sunday League season brought clarity on a couple of the big issues.

In Division One Fairfield Park were at home against Engineers Arms and the game turned out to be an 11-goal thriller, Arms edging it 6-5.

Chells Rovers beat Ashwell 3-1 while Sandon defeated Arlesey Town 4-2.

FC Emperors Head continued their good run of form with a good 4-1win away against The Cock.

Kimpton and GSS faced each other in a double header in Division Two.

The first game was an extremely tight affair with both sides creating chances but both keepers standing firm, collecting a clean sheet each in a 0-0 draw.

That point lifted Kimpton off the foot of the table for the first time.

The second game tougher for the villagers as they only had one sub as compaed to their opponent's five.

But it was Kimpton that took the lead in the first half, Alex Jode headeding home from an Ollie Halls corner.

Halls was to feature in the next goal too but unfortunately it was at the wrong end, deflecting a header from a corner into his own.

GSS went in front shortly after with a shot from an acute angle but Kimpton kept pressing with Rezza Rob and Nick Jessop both having shots saved and Ryan Gray heading over.

GSS made it 3-1 but Kimpton continued to play well, even with players beginning to truggle.

Newcomer James Batten gave them hope with a superb solo goal to make to 3-2 and with eight minutes, they had the chance to equalise when they were awarded a penalty.

However, the usually reliable Halls fired straight down the middle and hit the keeper's legs meaning the score stayed at 3-2 at the final whistle.

Khoi Khoi's 5-1 loss at home to Lea Sports PSG means they are now the basement club in the division.

North Herts Hatters and FC Inter Malone took part in a closely contested game which ended up 2-1 to FC Inter Malone.

The final game of the day saw Division Two champions North Baldock face Almond Tree and the latter inflicted just the third league defeat of the season on the champs, winning 3-1.

The runners up spot is between Almond Tree and FC Inter Malone who are separated by just two points.

Almond Tree have completed all of their fixtures and FC Inter Malone will claim the runners up spot if they win their remaining game against Saint Evenage.

The Division Two play-off semi-finals will involve GSS, Squirrel Taverners, Troll Campbell and either Almond Tree or FC Inter Malone.

Sunday sees the Division Two play-off Final at the County Ground, Letchworth, and will kick off at 6pm.

Entry fee is £5 per person and children U12 are free.
