Promotion is already confirmed, but Hemsworth MW have had to keep the Champagne on ice for a few more days at least before they can celebrate the Division One title in the Toolstation NCE League.

Wayne Benn’s men clinched their promotion with a 2-1 win at Dronfield Town last week and could have followed up by sealing the championship with another success at bottom of the table Lincoln Moorlands Railway last Saturday.

But they were disappointed to have their game postponed and are still left needing two more points to be absolutely sure of the title.

They will be champions if they win at Penistone Church this Saturday, or if they match AFC Mansfield’s result.

Had Mansfield failed to win at Glasshoughton Welfare on Tuesday night the championship would have been Hemsworth’s, but they won 4-1 as goals from Craig Mitchell, Jason White. Jake Pick and Darren Rick did for Welfare with Leon Cusworth getting a late consolation.
