SUPPORTERS’ player-of-the-season Sam Griffin set Blackfield & Langley on their way to a dominant 4-0 home win over Lymington Town on Saturday.

It puts the Watersiders in the box seat for the Sydenhams Premier Division title, lurking just three points behind league leaders Andover Town with two games in hand.

Significantly Blackfield have a vastly superior goal difference to Andover after further strikes from Franklyn Clarke (penalty) and brace man Liam Robinson took them to 109 league goals for the season.

Andover have scored 112, but it’s in the defensive department that the boys from Gang Warily have truly excelled.

Yet another clean sheet on Saturday means the Watersiders have conceded a miserly 23 Wessex goals all season, compared to 54 let in by the north Hampshire table-toppers.

Saturday’s win all but assures Glenn Howes’ men of second spot but, realistically, they must now be hot favourites to repeat their memorable title triumph of 2012/13.

Andover play their penultimate fixture tomorrow away at Amesbury Town before rounding off the season with a tricky test at third-placed Sholing on Saturday.

Blackfield have four fixtures to squeeze in over seven days - away to Baffins Milton Rovers (April 21), away to Fareham (April 23), home to Hamworthy United (April 25) and away to Brockenhurst (April 27).

The league, though, is not Blackfield’s only chance of silverware.

Far from it.

On Wednesday the Watersiders get to pit their wits against Lee Bradbury’s National League South high-fliers Havant & Waterlooville in the Hampshire FA Senior Cup final at St Mary’s Stadium (7.45pm).

Blackfield will then return to the same prestigious venue on Wednesday, May 2 (7.30pm) to take on Radhi Jaidi’s Saints U23s in the Southampton Senior Cup final.

One bright spot for Lymington Town on Saturday was a promising first-team debut for 16-year-old Jonny Jordan.
