CHARD Under-18s became champions of the south division of the Somerset floodlight league on Monday night without kicking a ball.
Cheddar’s 4-3 victory at Elmore leaves Chard two points clear at the top of the table.
And the only fixture to be played in the division is their game against Glastonbury at Zembard Lane next Tuesday.
Chard’s promotion to the premier division means they will face the likes of Taunton and Tiverton next season.
Hung Dang’s side have enjoyed an impressive season, winning nine of their 13 matches to date.
