Treble winners Old Wilsonians defeat to reigning champions Old Owens yesterday (25/04/15) handed the league championship to Winchmore Hill with one game to spare.
In a near repeat of last season's climax when Winchmore's defeat of Wilsonians in the season's final match handed Owens their third SAL title, the visitors, with SAL secretary Graeme Wilson in goal for his final club appearance, upset the form book to end Wilsonians' bid for an historic quadruple.
The championship is Winchmore Hill's 8th - leaving them second only to West Wickham, with 10, in the list of SAL title winners - but the first since 1984. Despite numerous close calls and several cup victories the championship has eluded Winchmore in recent seasons and this year's win will be a huge occasions for the club and manager Andy Russell.
