King’s Lynn Sunday League round-up: Division One title race swings back in Terrington’s favour
England's Hope slipped up to hand the Division One title initiative back to Terrington.
The championship-challengers lost 3-2 at Chilvers despite goals from Ben Jimson and Sam Whyborn. The county-cup finalist hosts found the net through Tom Doughty and Liam Bowley before Martin 'Ginner' Brewer notched the winner.
Terrington now sit six points clear after they struggled to a 4-2 win at White Bell. Neil Goodbourn, Kasim Beetlestone, Luke Tordoff and player-manager Gavin Caney, who missed a penalty but scored the rebound, netted for the league leaders.
Lynn Napier kept up their good run of late-season form, with a resounding 5-1 win against Wisbech CP8, whose poor form continues. Napier continue to improve their league position and got the three points in Wisbech courtesy of a Vinny Follen brace and goals from Rocky Mayes, Shaun Gurney and Sam Moses. Aaron Hurrell responded for CP8.
Only Hope or Terrington can now win Division One. Terrington's last two games are against Hope – who have played a match less. The pair play at Hope's Marshland Smeeth pitch on Sunday. A win would clinch Terrington a long-awaited title.
