Magical Neasden promoted
|0 - 8|
Wadham Road, Wathamstow E17
Neasden missed out on the title, but Stirling Kay's men were still celebrating as they clinched the runners-up spot to mark their return to the top-flight following an exhilarating performance in Walthamstow.
JAMIE KENT was the hat-trick hero as NWN inflicted Chigwell's worst defeat of the season, with Adam Arnold (2), Josh Gilbery (2) and Scott McKenzie putting the icing on the cake.
Delighted NWN boss Stirling Kay told JC Sport: "We left our best performance to last. Knowing a win would give us promotion to win by four or more could give us the title, it was for us to produce and that we did.
"Leading 1-0 at half-time, I asked the boys for a big second half and they were brilliant; this was a chigwell side since Christmas have been very good and had beaten us two games ago - they don't let many goals in. So to score seven second half goals - with only one down to the keeper - the 8th - shows what fantastic football we played.
"When game was finished we were seven minutes away from wining the title. That would of been unbelievable, but Woodford scored a late winer.
"In October we were 8th, in May we were seven minutes from the title. It's been a fantastic effort from every one in the squad, I am so proud of every one of them and now we look forward to the challenge of competing with the very best.
"I would like to congratulate Woodford players on winning the league and look forward to playing them next year."
