EFL News Centre – Gaelic Lions are champions of EFL’s Premiership after a whopping 6-0 win against South Buona Vista Saints on Saturday. The win puts Gaelic on 48 points with 2 games left to play, out of reach of their nearest rivals Saturday Pirates, who did not play over the weekend. Gaelic Lions have had an impressive season, winning 15 out of their 20 league games played and conceding a mere 18 goals during that period while scoring an astonishing 59. It is the Lions’ first league title in their history and an even better season than last after they came in as runners-up in 2010/11.
British Club First XI continued their late surge up the table with a convincing 4-1 win against SCC Strollers to complete a league double over the Padang outfit’s veterans team. BC had previously won 2-0 against SCC at Dempsey Pitch in February. Singapore Vipers FC may have lost their crown to Gaelic over the weekend, but there was no signs of letting up in their push for a good league finish when they came from two goals behind to beat MDIS FC 5-2 at Serangoon Garden Secondary.
Elsewhere, Hibernians United were held to a 1-1 draw by Tuan Gemuk Athletic in what is the last league match for the Hibs this season. Pulau Ubin FC got back to winning ways by edging a keenly contested match with TTFC 3-2, to claim all 3 points ahead of their big match next week against British Club First XI.
