Wulfs end season on a high

AFC Wulfrunians finished the season on a high with a 3-0 home win against Alvechurch with departing forward Andy Thompson notching a hat-trick to move ahead of Jamie King as the seasons top scorer with a total of 20 goals in all competitions this season. Wulfs are sure to miss Thompson, who is soon to move abroad for work.

Subbed off not long after scoring his third, Thompson battled away winning tackles and almost everything in the air and looked like he was hungry for more. Wulfs will have to learn to live without the frontman, whose total goals for the club hit 47 today. Also departing is centre back Dave Asbury after an impressive 171 appearances for Wulfs.

Todays win sees the club finish in their highest ever league position, one better and on more points than last seasons eighth place finish, and Steve Palmer’s men can go into the summer break confident that the club is moving forward.

Basford United were crowned champions of the Midland Football League Premier Division, finishing on 95 points, with Heath Hayes, Tipton Town and Loughborough University all being relegated.
