NON LEAGUE Larkhall eye Western League double

Bath club Larkhall Athletic clinched the Western League championship following a 4-1 midweek win over Hallen.
 
Larkhall’s home victory – courtesy of goals from Tyler Sibbick 2, Nat Auckland and Steve Bridges – secured the championship and also meant Athletic hit their target of 100 goals with six league games remaining.
 
Today the Larks visit Odd Down in the Bath derby at 1230 and on Monday receive the championship trophy following their home game against Slimbridge, which kicks off at 1400.
 
Larkhall’s triumph is set to have a knock-on effect for the league as the Bath club plan to accept promotion to the Southern League if – as anticipated – they receive the offer.
 
Their Plain Ham ground has already passed fit - via a grading inspection - for Southern League football.
 
The new champions are now eyeing a Western League double as they meet First Division side Cribbs in the Les Phillips Cup final at Hallen FC on Sunday May 11 (3.00pm).
 
In the week leading up to the cup final Wayne Thorne’s side – who have lost just once in 34 league games – visit Willand Rovers, on Saturday May 3, and Buckland Athletic, on bank holiday Monday May 5.
 
Buckland and Willand drew 1-1 in a league fixture at Homer’s Heath last night and are not in Good Friday action today but do play in a full programme of Easter Monday games.
 
Adam Castle’s Buckland visit Street while Scott Rogers’ Willand host Ilfracombe Town in their second Devon derby of the extended bank holiday weekend.
