As the season comes to its climax the fixtures that are played this week will set the stage for next week when it is likely that the final league positions will be determined. A number of teams across the divisions have come on something of a late charge, while others have consolidated their positions and are no doubt already thinking about how to take things forward next year.
On Wednesday Fairwater played Ty Celyn. Fairwater are now safe but Ty Celyn knew that if they needed to win then the match to have any chance of avoiding finishing in the bottom two. Despite their best efforts they want down 2-0 to Fairwater.
In the B Division Urdd were at home to Caerau Ely. On paper Caerau looked to be favourites, but following their defeat by Butetown confidence seems to have been an issue. Urdd have shown they are capable of springing a surprise when they are able to field their top team. And that’s exactly what they did tonight, when they achieved a 4-3 win over second place Caerau Ely. As well as securing Urdd’s place in the B Division it throws open the battle for second place.
In the C Division, champions Marshfield will be looking to sign out on a high, while Marlboro Red will be looking to edge into second place ahead of the Dragons, taking the battle for runners-up position to the final game of the season.
On Thursday St Albans extended their lead at the top of the table to five points with a 3-0 win against a dogged and determined Marlboro Blacks team. St Albans win sets up an interesting finale to the season with two games against Rhiwbina that will determine who will become the 2011/12 champions. Meantime, 4-2 win by Whitchurch over Llanedeyrn also sets up quite a battle for third place with Marlboro Black and Maindy.
