Weekend Round-Up: 1s must wait to learn fate

4 Apr 2023

Defeat in their final fixture of the season away to champions the Old Foresters means the OHAFC 1st XI must wait to see if they are to suffer a second successive relegation.

Despite a strong showing on the astroturf at the Old Chigwellians Club, the Blues trailed to an early goal before Charlie Bick levelled from the spot just before the break. A tense second half saw few chances created, the hosts retaking the lead from a set-piece with twenty-five minutes remaining.

Murray Barr squandered a glorious chance to earn a point when he fired wide with a couple of minutes remaining before Forest broke upfield in the final moments to score a third and seal the win.

The Blues need either the Old Salopians or the Old Berkhamstedians to drop points in their final fixtures of the season after the Easter break to ensure they stay in Division One next season.

The final 1s team sheet and match report of the season are now available in the results section.
