Petherton took the title ahead of Winsham with two games to play.

Former champions Barrington beat Shepton Beauchamp 4-2, while Merriott Rovers drew 2-2 at home to Farway Utd, Adam Dawe and Brad Powers on target for the Rovers.

The Division 1 title is still in the balance with Thorncombe, Perry Street Res and Waytown Hounds still in the mix.

Leaders Thorncombe had a tricky visit to Uplyme but came through in impressive mode, winning 5-2.

Harvey Brimicombe and James Souter-Phillips scored for Uplyme but the Thorns coasted home.

Earlier in the week, they went top by beating Misterton Res 2-0.

Second-placed Perry Street Res travelled to already-relegated Netherbury and came home with a 2-0 victory and three points in the bag.

South Petherton Res moved into pole position in the race for the Division 2 title with a 4-1 victory over main rivals, second-placed Charmouth.

They picked up a 2-0 win at home to Dowlish & Donyatt on Saturday following Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at South Petherton Res.

Tom Brister scored their goal in reply to Louis Hockey’s opener.

Shepton, having finished their games, can still be overhauled by second-bottom Crewkerne Rangers Res who must win both their remaining games.

In the other match, Forton Rangers Reserves beat Kingsbury Episcopi 6-2.

In Division 3, leaders Winsham Utd Res and Lyme Regis Rovers go to the last game for the title honours.

Martin Mears and Sam Murley were on target for Crewkerne Rangers A but couldn’t save them from a 6-2 home defeat at the hands on Chard Rangers Res.

Winsham Utd carried off the Challenge Cup on Good Friday, after beating Misterton 3-2 at Forton.

A Dan Norman double set Winsham on their way in a tight battle, with Aaron Crabb adding the other.

This was despite Jo Simmons receiving a red card.

Finlay McLean (2) and Rob Larcombe scored the winning goals.
