Southborough FC are your S&DFL 2023 Premier Division Champions!

Southborough Football Club beat local rivals Hawkenbury 3-1 on Saturday afternoon to claim the Sevenoaks & District Football League Premier Division title.

Goals from Dean Chamberlain, Baldi Maher and Joshua Williams secured the title for Southborough with one game to spare, and without a single loss in the league so far this campaign.

Prolific goalscorer Julius Walker managed to get on the scoresheet once again for Hawkenbury as he hit 18 for the season, although Westerham’s Lewis Longhurst looks to take the golden boot this year, with 22 goals so far.

Southborough will enjoy a weekend off before hosting Leigh on the final day of the season on May 13th, in what is sure to have a championship winning feeling to the day.

Elsewhere, Nomads have wrapped up the Division One title and will return to the Premier Division after being relegated last year, and Kemsing United will join them if they can get four points from their remaining three games.

It’s still wide open in Division Two, with five teams in with a shout of the title and promotion. Cudham United, TJFC Seniors, Tunbridge Wells Foresters Reserves, AFC Green Court and Swanley Oaks all have a chance to tope the table although Cudham United do hold a significant advantage over their rivals, five points ahead of second place with an extra game in hand.

And it’s Cudham United Reserves who hold the advantage in Division Three. They are currently top of the division by three points with four games left to play. Chasing the leaders are Kemsing United Reserves, Dartford Celtic Reserves and Five Oak Green.

After an impressive year for the Sevenoaks League, and with hundreds of cup matches also taking place, the season is nearly at it’s end. Percentages of league matches completed so far are: Premier Division – 89%; Division One – 93%; Division Two – 85%; and Division Three – 83%.
