Bristol Premier Combination Division One

Olveston 2 Brimsham Green 0

OLVESTON United confirmed their promotion to the Premier Division next season when they finished in second place in the league table after beating Brimsham Green at Old Down.

Matt Knight and Matt Roberts were the Olveston scorers in this comfortable win.

Olveston will return to the Premier Division after an 18-year absence and will face tougher opposition next season, but manager Richard Thompson and his assistant Steve Farrell are confident they will do well and feel their great team spirit will stand them in good stead.

They have their presentation evening at Old Down Country Park this Friday, which will mark the end of a great season for the club.
