BRITISH Rail are within touching distance of the Oxford & District Division 1 title after beating Vikings B 10-0 with maximums for Darren Jones, Neil Cartwright and Greg Donovan.

Forum A beat Begbroke 10-0 to assure themselves of at least the runners-up spot.

This sets up a title-decider in the final match between the top two.

Forum A are two points adrift of the leaders, so need to improve on the draw they achieved against Tail in their previous clash if they are to lift the crown.

In Division 2, two-man Gladiators A ended their season with a 6-4 victory over Forum E that puts them in the top spot.

But Forum D have a match in hand, so while promotion for Gladiators is assured, winning the division is not.

Academy A gained a 7-3 victory over Gladiators B.

Forum I beat Division 3 leaders Vikings C 8-2 to take over at the top after maximums from Jake East and Joao Camacho.
