Clapton CFC women’s first team out of promotion race but still plenty to play for

Clapton CFC women’s first team are now out of the running for the one promotion spot going into the last few weeks of the season. The 3-2 home defeat to leaders Sport London e Benfica last Sunday means that we can no longer catch them. Nevertheless, it’s been a great achievement to stay in the hunt for so long for a secon season in a row.

The promotion situation is simple enough in the London & South East Regional Women’s League Division 1 North – the top team only are promoted to the Premier, which is tier 5. There are no play-offs. So it’s now a straight two-way fight between Sport London E Benfica and Brentford for the top spot.

However, Clapton CFC are still going to have a big say in the title chase, as we play Brentford at home and away. We also have a home game against Denham United and a tasty looking East London derby away at Hackney FC.
