Champions miss out on cup

Doncaster and District Senior Football League

THE week in which AFC Sportsman Rovers were crowned Premier Division champions proved to be one of their most disappointing spells of the season as they lost their unbeaten home record and missed out on a league an

Rovers suffered a 2-1 defeat to South Kirkby Colliery A but results elsewhere saw them seal the Premier Division title.

And they were losers again in the KO Cup Final as they went down 3-1 to Rossington Main.

The Mexborough side were without their two main strikers but competed well only for Main to go ahead against the run of play.

Andrew Wood made it 2-1 with 25 minutes to play but Rovers could not find the equaliser, with Main sealing the win in the dying moments.

Elsewhere, Swinton Station Athletic bounced back from a 3-1 defeat to Swinton Station Athletic to see off Maltby MW 3-0 with goals from Shane Moore, Luke Whitfield and Ben Pemberton.
