Sheppey & Sheerness United missed out on the league title on Saturday – but they hope to be celebrating promotion by the end of the week.

A 3-0 defeat against Metrogas meant that Sheppey had to settle for second place in the haart of Kent County League, Premier Division.

A runners-up spot should be enough to clinch promotion to the next level, the Kent Invicta League, as Metrogas haven’t applied for a place in the league above.

A meeting of the Football Association’s National Leagues Committee this week should ratify Sheppey’s promotion.

Boss Kevin Hake said: “We have fulfilled everything that has been asked of us and jumped through hoops, so we are hopeful.

“We had a target to reach the Kent Invicta League within five years and is looks as if we could have done it in one, which is beyond our wildest dreams.”

Sheppey hope to end their season on Saturday at Holm Park with a match against Erith 147 Sports.

The match has been postponed twice before, with Erith struggling to raise a team. Sheppey have already postponed a charity event to accommodate them this weekend.
