AFC Kempsey scored a remarkable four goals in the last 10 minutes of their season to clinch the Cheltenham League Premier Division title by the smallest of margins.

Kempsey edged a five-goal thriller against leaders Winchcombe Town in their penultimate game, meaning they had to defeat Southside Star by six clear goals to climb above Senior Charity Cup winners Winchcombe on goal difference.

They led 3-1 at half-time and with 10 minutes left to play it was 6-3, but a late flurry saw them claim a 10-3 victory, denying Winchcombe a league and cup double.

Josh Cochrane fired a hat-trick to take his tally for the season to 25, while Ethan O’Neill and Ryan Smith both scored twice.

Substitute Cameron Doyle, Joe Morrall and Charlie Cotterill were the other scorers at Naunton Park.

Kempsey won the Division One title last season with 16 wins from 16 games to secure promotion to the Premier Division.

They also lifted the Senior Charity Cup at Whaddon Road in both 2021/22 and 2022/23.
