Sawbridgeworth Town set to escape relegation from Spartan South Midlands League, Premier Division following St Panteleimon withdrawal

Sawbridgeworth Town look set to escape relegation from the Spartan South Midlands League, Premier Division following the withdrawal of a promotion-chasing side.

The Robins are bottom of the league with just one win from their 30 fixtures, but only one side is due to go down and St Panteleimon have folded with immediate effect.

The Londoners, who were fifth in the table, announced last week they could no longer meet the financial demands of playing at step five.

It means Sawbo should get a second season in the division having been transferred across, along with Stansted, from the Essex Senior League last summer.

And Stansted and Sawbo shared the spoils when they drew 1-1 at Hargrave Park on Saturday (March 30).

Correy Davidson put the 12th-placed Airportmen ahead early on with a lob, but the visitors equalised with 16 minutes remaining.

The Robins also found a leveller to draw 1-1 at Aylesbury Vale Dynamos last Tuesday (March 26) after Jake Baldwin had put the hosts ahead.

In the Essex Senior League, Premier Division on Saturday, fourth-from-bottom Takeley drew 2-2 at home to eighth-placed Halstead Town.

Takeley led twice, but the Humbugs equalised through Jake Brown and Kane Gilbert, with the latter converting an 81st-minute penalty.

Bishop’s Stortford’s tenants Enfield suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at Walthamstow in the Pitching In Isthmian League, North Division on Easter Monday (April 1).

Ezra Agyiri got the only goal of the contest in the 23rd minute.

Alex Salmon’s men went close to equalising through substitute Adem Yilmaz at the death.

The third-from-bottom E’s went into the game on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Brightlingsea Regent on Saturday, with Matt Hurley’s headed goal being a consolation.
