Going into this game, Endmoor were sat comfortably in mid-table, however for Penrith all was to play for, one point from there remaining two games was all that was required for the away side to become league champions.
The game was a close affair during the first half, with both sides having their fair share of chances, but that was always going to be the case against a much improved of late home team who had picked up a draw against title contenders Burneside. Neither side could break the deadlock before half time.
Going into the second half, ‘The Academy’ with the wind behind them and the sun out of their eye’s created alot more chances than the first half, and probably should have gone ahead on a couple of occasions however credit to Endmoor, they battled on and had a couple of chances themselves.
Despite not taking their opportunities, the game finished 0-0 meaning that Penrith Academy got the job done and were crowned champions of Division Three with a game to spare, a game that happens to be against Burneside meaning that Penrith could still have a big say in who joins them in Division Two next year, either Burneside or Kirkoswald Reserves will go up in second place.
Next up for the Academy is a cup semi-final against Staveley United Reserves this Saturday, a game that if they win will see them play against Burneside in the final after they beat Penrith Royal in their semi-final.
