WIVENHOE TOWN suffered a crushing 9-0 defeat at new champions Mildenhall Town on the final day of the Thurlow Nunn League season.

The Dragons were hoping to sign off on a positive note, having had their premier division relegation confirmed following Wednesday’s heart-breaking 3-2 against Haverhill Rovers.

However, it was not to be and the champions proved far too strong.

To their credit, Wivenhoe’s players and officials stayed behind afterwards to watch the championship silverware be presented to the jubilant Mildenhall squad.

Elsewhere, FC CLACTON avoided the wooden spoon position after concluding their season with an emphatic 3-0 victory at basement boys Swaffham Town.

Lee Clowsley, Sam Cripps and Jake Clowsley were on target for Kieron Shelley’s side.

Clacton had already been relegated but knew that if they avoided defeat, their hosts would finish bottom of the pile rather than them.

Victory also meant they finished the season with back-to-back wins, securing clean sheets in both.

At the other end of the table, Karl Duguid’s STANWAY ROVERS finished in sixth spot after a 1-1 draw at Godmanchester Rovers.

BRANTHAM ATHLETIC ended their campaign with a 1-0 success at home to Haverhill.

Sean Bartlett’s deflected goal secured the points in the first half.

The Imps claimed eighth spot in the table, having won eight of their last ten fixtures.

Promoted COGGESHALL TOWN finished as division one runners-up after a 2-0 success at Diss Town.

Nnamdi Nwachuku scored both goals.

HOLLAND FC can also be proud of their fifth-place finish, having brought the curtain down on their season with a 3-2 success at Cornard United.

Billy Wales, Steve Eaton and Joe Martin scored their goals while Ray Turner was playing his final game for the club, before calling time on his illustrious non-league career.

HALSTEAD TOWN slumped to a 4-0 defeat at home to Woodbridge.

The Humbugs finished ninth and BRAINTREE TOWN RESERVES eighth, after a 2-2 draw at home to Framlingham Town on Friday night.
