Letchworth have won the league title - and they owe a huge debt to their second team.

The first XI won Division Two South after defeating Chelmsford thirds 6-2 with goals from Ian Heywood (hat-trick), Scott Aps (two) and Robbie Balsom.

This was only possible as their own second XI beat previous leaders Wapping seconds 2-1 with goals from Ian Crosse and Matthew Spreckley to finish in third place and hand the first team the title.

Letchworth thirds beat their Stevenage counterparts 4-0 thanks to two goals apiece from Ben Abbott and Tom McIntyre Brown.

This win means Stevenage thirds are relegated along with Letchworth fourth XI from Division Five South West as they lost 5-4 to Bishop's Stortford fifths despite being 3-0 up at one stage. Letchworth's goalscorers were Gary Putnam (hat-trick) and Kevin Smith.

The fifths conceded their game 3-0 to Winchmore Hill and Enfield fourth XI as they were unable to raise a side.
