H REC CAP

Captain Rikki Walden receives the League Championship from DPL Chairman, Mr Mike Mock

 

On the final Saturday of what has been a long season, the title was still up for grabs, and it was HAMWORTHY RECREATION FC who secured that title after beating hosts Bridport Res 4-2 at St Marys field this after being 2-1 down at half time. Westland Sports who have pushed Rec all the way needed to win at Balti Sports and hope Rec dropped points but hosts Balti won 2-1 meaning Westlands have to settle for Runners Up spot. In the days other fixture, Wareham Rangers and Dorchester Sports shared 10 goals with Sports winning 6-4 in a game switched to the County Ground.

It was disappointing that the remaining scheduled fixture was postponed because 1 Club couldnt raise a side but given that the opening day of this season saw a non fulfilled fixture, we have now seen the last day of fixtures also suffer with a non fulfilled fixture !!!!
