East Midlands League
Mansfield Town have been confirmed as Premier Division Champions, but only after the nerviest of endings to a season.
Steel City Wanderers went into their final match of the campaign needing to beat Rise Park by six clear goals in order to pip Mansfield to the title or five to force a play-off match. As it turned out, the Steels led at half time through a Sam Hallam goal and then netted three times in the last fifteen minutes but could not add a fifth goal and this left Mansfield as title winners on goal difference, by just one goal. Both Hallam and Sarah Smith each scored twice but the Steels finish in second place, albeit their highest ever league position in their 20th season.
