Kidlington v Eversley & California
As it stands Kidlington are sitting second from bottom, two points adrift of Eversley. Both sides have two games remaining. The reverse fixture was just last month. It finished in a 3-1 victory for the home side and BotP was there to enjoy the game (Boars Build From The Back). Frankie Boekbinder, Mia Caulcrick with a cracker, and Jo Harfield-Brown scored for the Boars. Courtney Sumner got a second-half goal back for Kidlington.

Bearing in mind that it is my intention to expand across all Southern Region Leagues next season and, as there is only one D1N game to look at, it seems to be the ideal opportunity to take a quick look at the South. This coming weekend the top two go head to head in a title shootout.
AFC Stoneham v Badshot Lea
The Baggies head the table by a point from AFC Stoneham but have played a game more, meaning this is their final game of the season. The one point difference also means that the winner of this game takes the title. It's effectively a cup final. They have met twice already this season and it is all-square. Badshot Lea beat Stoneham 2-1 at home in the league encounter . Lucy Cook and Deanna Taylor notching for the home side, Madison Payne for Stoneham. In the cup, also played at Wrecclesham, a single Lauren Harper goal was enough to give The Purples the win.
