Promoted Wombwell Town are four points away from reclaiming the title they had taken away from them in 2020.

Wombwell will be crowned champions if they achieve that tally in clashes with Sheffield Union at home on Tuesday night and then at relegated Sheffield Medics on Saturday.

Karl Rose’s side will certainly be firing on all cylinders if their 6-0 hammering of South Elmsall United Services is anything to go by.

Wombwell showed no mercy to their hosts in the demolition.

Predatory striker Brad Kerr netted twice.

Free-scoring left-back Will Harling, Jordan Cooper, Brodie Cooper and Gareth McDermott were the other goal-scorers.

Wombwell won the 2019/20 Division One title, but because of the pandemic, the league season was expunged.

Handsworth Reserves are waiting in the wings if Wombwell slip up.

Leaders Handsworth finished their campaign on a high by winning 3-1 at AFC Dronfield.

Pat Muirhead, Ethan Hobson and Ryan Dixon scored for the Ambers.
