IN the junior section of the Metaltec SIL, Colin Macrow's Old Newton have been confirmed as First Division champions and can make it a double when they take on Achilles in the final of the Suffolk Junior Cup at Portman Road next Wednesday.

Alan Middle's Achilles have clinched the second spot and promotion, while Claydon and Willis have been relegated to Division Two.

Saxmundham and Halesworth have been promoted from Division Two, with the former needing to win their final match at AFC Hoxne to be sure of the title. Bildeston Rangers are relegated. Grundisburgh second string, under Phil Peck, made it a significant double for the club, having won Intermediate A for the first time since 2003/04 after a run of 13 victories in their last 14 matches. They go for a double in the Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup final on May 7. Stowupland Falcons and Felixstowe United have been relegated.
