Hampshire – AFC Stoneham’s Reserves followed up their 1st team’s title success of last weekend by finishing top of Division 4. Needing a win against fellow title-chasers Widbrook United Reserves to take top spot ahead of QK Southampton Development, they got the only goal of the game in the second half through Leah Webster. A great few days for the club, whose U-18s clinched their league title too this weekend.
