LANGFORD'S relegation fears were eased by Saturday's 1-0 derby win at Biggleswade United.

This result meant the season has ended honours even following their fourth and final encounter of the season at Second Meadow.

An 81st minute goal from Langford's Rob Groves saw 17th placed Langford gain three important league points from the seventh placed hosts.

And the Forde Park club are now looking good for SML Premier Division football next season.

Dean Bull had the best chance of the half to give United the lead in the sixth minute.

United's early flurry petered out but as the interval beckoned, United again stepped up the pressure in search of a goal to take in at the break. But the best they could offer was a superb strike from Mark Tyler that crashed against the visitors' bar.
