Local Football Results: Playoffs Update

As we near the end of the football season, many of our local teams’ fates are yet to be decided by the last two games.

In League 2, Crawley Town drew 2 all with Sutton United at Gander Green Lane on Saturday.  The Reds need to win their last game and for other results to go their way to secure the play off spot.  At the other end of the table Sutton United also need a win next Saturday to stand a chance of avoiding relegation. 

Dorking Wanderers’ fate was already sealed last week; they will be relegated to the National League South next season.  Dorking lost 4-3 at home to Hartlepool in their last game and finished second from bottom in the National League.

In the Isthmian South East Division, Three Bridges won 2-1 over Sevenoaks Town.  Three Bridges have already secured their place in the play off semi finals which take place on Tuesday 30th April.
