Walton Court Wanderers retained the ADL Premier Division title in emphatic style on Saturday when they beat Downley Albion 6-1 in their 
final match of the season.

Mo Johnson and Musa Schmidt both bagged braces to fire Wanders to the title. Aylesbury Dynamos have been confirmed as runners-up with Downley finishing bottom of the league. Pond Park Rangers have also been relegated.

There is still a lot to play for in Division One as Aylesbury Park Rangers guaranteed themselves a promotion place with a 3-2 midweek victory over FC Mandeville. Chris Davies hit a hat-trick after Rangers had fallen 2-0 behind.

That was then followed by a 7-1 thrashing at struggling Oving, which puts Aylesbury four points clear at the top although second-placed Wendover have two games in hand.

Aylesbury Sports’ hopes of automatic promotion are over following a 2-2 draw with Longwick Sports despite the division’s leading scorer Ian Pearce netting twice.

At the bottom, Bedgrove Utd failed to take advantage of Oving’s defeat as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Wingrave. Ross Fymruk with the goal. Utd need to win both of their remaining games while Wingrave, who have completed their campaign, must now hope other results go their way in order to avoid relegation.

FC Spandits also remain in relegation trouble following a 7-1 defeat to FC Mandeville. Steve Keating, Chris Hughes, Ryan Macintosh and Adam Mellis were all on the score sheet for Mandeville.

In Division Two, Bucks CC Reserves have wrapped up the runners-up spot behind champions Long Crendon after a 1-0 win over Quainton, Ben Floyd with the only goal.

FC Spandits Reserves and Stone Magnets St Johns have been relegated already.

In Division Three, Long Marston Reserves beat Waddesdon Reserves 3-2 and they now need two wins from their final two games to take the title away from Tring Town AFC.

Waddesdon missed the chance to finish third as a result while Quainton Reserves and Oving Reserves have already been relegated.

Division Four was sorted weeks ago with FC Mandeville Reserves and Tetsworth Reserves promoted.

Bucks CC are into another final after beating Berko Sports 3-0 in the Marsworth Senior Cup semi-finals. They will face Wendover, who caused a cup upset when they shocked Haddenham Utd, who play a division higher, 5-3.

In the Senior Subsidiary Cup, Aylesbury Dynamos beat Pond Park Rangers 6-0 and both have qualified for the semi-finals. Long Marston versus Stone Magnets was postponed but both Marston and Magnets as well as Elmhurst and Waddeson can still reach the semi-finals

In the Junior Subsidiary Cup, Long Crendon Reserves booked their place in the last four with a 3-3 draw against a battling AC Meadowcroft.

AC miss out as do SUFC despite beating Ludgershall Reserves 5-1. Shane Lockley and Chris Cackett with two each and Dave Touceda netting the other in SUFC’s final ever game.

Wendover Reserves beat FC Mandeville Reserves 4-2. Tetsworth Reserves now must beat Tring Titans Reserves in midweek to secure a semi-final slot at Wendover’s expense.
