CHAMPIONSHIP SECURED AFTER A "NAILBITER"

Borough clinched the League Championship with a roller-coaster nerve shredder of a win at home to Bowers & Pitsea - the only Club who could have challenged them.   Borough started hesitantly and it was no real surprise when the visitors took  a 17th minute lead through Luke Wilson who met a corner from the right just outside the far post and smashed it back and  in.   Before that Bowers had suffered the disappointment of having a goal disallowed for off-side and Borough 'keeper Ashley Harris had made a fine sprawling save to his right to keep out a Lewis Manor penalty kick.    There were no gilt edged chances created in the remainder of the first half of which Bowers  definitely had the better.   But with wind advantage Borough improved greatly and drew level in the 57th minute when Dean Fenton blasted a 25 yard free kick from a central position low through the wall and right into the corner of the net to the 'keepers left.   Parity was sufficient to clinch the Championship but a clumsy tackle  in the 75th minute gave Manor another opportunity from the spot and this time he gave Harris no chance.    With nothing to lose Borough withdrew both full-backs in favour of more attacking players and were rewarded three minutes from time when one of them - Macauley White - scored his first goal for the Club direct from a corner on the left which dropped low just inside the far post.  It was now Bowers with nothing to lose by throwing caution to the wind but in the first minute of stoppage time Leroy Griffiths eased Borough nerves with what must be a contender for goal of the season as he hooked the ball over the keeper from some 40 yards or so way out from the right touchline.   One of those goals we would all never cease hearing about had Beckham or Ronaldo been the scorer.    It was just as well he did for in the remaining stoppage time Bowers hit the bar and Harris made a wonderful save as the rebound was blasted goalwards.   So Borough have finished the job with two games remaining and will enter the Promotion (from Step 5 to Step 4) Pool from which they will probably be allocated to Division One North of the Ryman League

SEMI-FINAL EXIT FROM TROPHY

A much changed Borough squad travelled to Clapton's "Old Spotted Dog" Stadium for the semi-final tie of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy.  After being slow to get into their stride, casual defending gifted Clapton a close range finish in the 15th minute for the games only goal.   Borough stepped up a gear and enjoyed most of the possession thereafter but mised a glorious opportunity to equalise from the spot after 35 minutes.   The penalty award led to the dismisal of a Clapton defender but although Borough battered away at the massed ranks of the home defence throughout the second half their final balls never created a clear opening and the Clapton 'keepers abilities as a shot stopper were never seriously tested.  His height enabled him to deal comfortably with the many high crosses and corners launched into the danger area.   Borough's long high ball approach foundered against uncompromising defenders who dealt confidently with such tactics and their job was helped as too many balls were overhit.

ANOTHER CLEAN SHEET - ANOTHER VITAL WIN

Borough's defence delivered another total shut out - their fourth in the last five games - against visiting Stansted.   Anthony McDonald was the architect of victory as the visitors had no answer to his trickery and must have been mightily relieved that he did not re-appear after the interval. He set up the opening goal after only three minutes when his perfectly flighted diagonal cross from the left was met by Rakim Richards at the far post and he made no mistake with an accurate low finish.   And it was a desperate tackle on McDonald which brought the penalty by which Dean Fenton doubled the lead deep into first half stoppage time.  Stansted enjoyed more possession in the second half and made determined efforts to save the game but it was not until a minute or so from the end of normal time that they looked like scoring and Borough were fortunate that a low cross shot rebounded from the post into the arms of Ashley Harris.     The victory means that Borough requiure one win from their remaining three games to be Champions
