Manager Joe Smith admitted he didn’t know what to expect after his Glenn Sports side were promoted to the West Herts League Premier Division this season, but hailed his players after they won the title on Saturday.

Glenn went into their home against Bovingdon A knowing a win would guarantee they would finish top of the league and they were soon in control after a Sam Clark brace put them 2-0 up inside the opening 30 minutes.

Charlie Benning then added a third as the table toppers continued to push for more goals.

Bovingdon gained more of a foothold after the break but they were unable to break down the Glenn defence, before the home side missed some further chances towards the end as they extended their unbeaten league run to a 14th game.

Smith said: “A fantastic season for us. We finished seventh in Division One last season and really didn’t know what to expect from this league after being promoted to the Prem.

“Delighted to win it, what a group of boys we have, well and truly deserved.”
