It’s mission accomplished for Jack’s House

NEWLY-crowned league champions, Jack’s House went into their final game aiming for a win and a clean sheet.

Both would mean breaking the 50 points barrier and having the best defensive and goal scoring record in the division and, not losing a home game all season.

They were without their regular goalkeeper and both strikers. But their strength in depth proved its worth.

The first half was all Jacks, playing quality football from stand-in keeper Daniel Lively through to strikers Marc Walters and Ash Hignett.

Chances were created but they could not put the ball in the net.

It looked like one of those days for Jacks, until man of the match Anthony Heys headed in a cross at the back post 10 minutes from half-time

This should have opened the flood gates for Jacks, but they could not find the clinical finish required.

The second half followed the pattern of the first with Jacks in complete control. Walters struck the bar with a quality strike and manager David Williams came on for the last 20 minutes and joined the queue for missing chances.

Williams said: “The lads proved themselves time and time again worthy champions. They can be proud of themselves and look forward to the challenge of the Premier Division next season.

“Thanks to Sue and Mark at Jack’s House and thanks to all the boisterous support we’ve had home and away all season.”
