D-Day for Devonshire Colts and St George’s
Promotion is at stake when Devonshire Colts travel to Wellington Oval to play St George's Colts on the final weekend of the First Division season.
Trailing St George's by three points, the Devonshire club know that only a win will suffice if they are to cement their place in the Premier Division next season.
They will enter the match confident after the first encounter between the two clubs was settled by a Quinn Simmons goal to earn all three points at Police Field last December.
Should Colts win, they will move level with St George's but clinch the second promotion spot on a vastly superior goal difference.
St George's are tied on points with Robin Hood, so all three teams could finish level on points, leaving the two spots to be determined by goal difference. However, that would require Ireland Island Rangers doing the unexpected when they host Robin Hood at Malabar Field, where a point for the visiting side will be enough to secure their quick return to the top flight.
To be denied promotion, Hood will have to lose by at least nine goals to Rangers. combined with a Devonshire Colts win at Wellington Oval. Hood have plus-33 goal difference, Devonshire Colts plus-31 and St George's plus-24.
Elsewhere, fourth-placed X-roads close out their season when bottom team Paget visit Garrison Field, while Boulevard and Somerset Eagles clash at Police Field and Young Men's Social Club make the short hop to Goose Gosling Field to play BAA Wanderers. With no Premier Division matches scheduled, all First Division matches kick off at 3pm.
