Rookies graduate from Division 2

Posted by Checker on March 8, 2012

Jesmond Rookies have clinched promotion back to Division 1 at the first time of asking.

Two wins in four days against both Gateshead teams left them well ahead of the chasing pack, and their ascent was confirmed last night without them pushing a pawn when Tynedale Reivers’ mathematical title hopes were extinguished at Alnwick.

The Rookies now have two bites at the title cherry: avoiding defeat against Forest Hall B next Friday, or against their sole remaining rivals Leam Lane Comets on April 3rd, will see them crowned champions.
