OBHC Men’s 5 th X1 – 1
Folkestone Optimists – 1

Old Bordenian Men’s 5ths hosted Folkestone Optimists in their last game of the season, needing a win to secure the league title. Despite dominating the early exchanges, the home side found themselves a goal down towards the end of the first half, a lead which the visitors held going in to the half-time break. The second half started in the same vein as the first, with the home side dominating possession, and following a well worked move, Jamie Henley levelled the scores. Bordenians continued to push forward for a second goal, but their efforts proved in vain, as the visitors held out for a draw.
The result leaves OBs top of the table by 2 points, but their nearest rivals, Marden, have a game in hand, a victory in which would give them the title.
