Aston Clinton manager Jordan King was delighted by the manner in which his side finished their season after beating high-flying Old Bradwell United 3-2.

Bradwell came into the game with 18 wins from their last 20 but Aston have been in good form themselves and took an early lead through Lamar Mason Williams’ volley.

Boosted by the early goal, Aston then doubled their lead when Harrison Mann sent in a delightful free-kick and James Williams headed home.

Bradwell pulled one back before half-time and levelled proceedings through an own goal in the second-half, but the final word belonged to Aston when a well-worked move culminated in Lewis Workman bagging the winner.

First team manager Jordan King said afterwards: “Superb way to end the season, to finish with four wins in a row is brilliant.

“Credit must go to all the players who have turned our season around, they have bought into mine and Smithy’s way of playing and took all our ideas on board.

“We challenged them to finish top eight in January and we have achieved a top seven finish which is a credit to themselves.

“We now look forward to the break and we go again in pre-season.”

Aston finished seventh in SSML Division Two.
