Nev Nania says it would be great to go into the final weekend of the season with Godmanchester Rovers still in the race for the title.

Goddy drew 1-1 with Kirkley & Pakefield in their final home game of the Eastern Counties League campaign and the team still has a slender chance of winning the title. However, other results would have to go their way, so a top four finish would be considered a success at this stage.

“We are where we are meant to be,” said Nania, joint manager with David Hurst at the club. “We are fifth because we didn’t do well enough in enough games this season.”

Scott Betts scored Godmanchester’s goal from a Chris Hyem free-kick but Niks Savalneiks had a great chance at the end to win all three points with a header he aimed straight at the Kirkley goalkeeper.

On Tuesday, Goddy go to FC Clacton, and a good result there coupled with a couple of bad results for the teams around them, could see the title still up for grabs – however improbably – come Saturday when they will go to Felixstowe & Walton United.

At Jubilee Park, Huntingdon Town finished their United Counties League season with a 3-2 win against Sileby Rangers.

The goals were scored by Ben Seymour-Shove, Jacob Joyce and Mark Arber. Seymour-Shove’s goal puts him just two behind Declan Rogers (35) in the race for the golden boot, with two cup finals left to play.

“We were very good going forward but sloppy at the back,” said manager Seb Hayes.

In the division below, Eynesbury Rovers – who were promoted in second place on Wednesday evening – finished their season with a 3-1 win at Northampton Spencer.

St Neots Town Youth & Saints ended their debut season in senior football with a 4-4 draw away at Burton Park Wanderers. The new Saints will be happy with a ninth place finish in a campaign that has been a learning curve.

Sixteenth-placed St Neots Town finished their Southern League Premier season with a 2-1 loss at home to Chippenham Town. Lorenzo Ferrari scored the Saints goal.

St Ives Town, in Division One Central, ended their campaign with a 2-0 win at home to Aylesbury to finish in 13th. Both goals were scored by Karl Gibbs.

St Neots and St Ives will now meet each other in the final of the Huntingdon FA Senior Cup at the Cozy Stadium on Friday evening.
