TOM Ferris scored a hat-trick in his last game for the club as Wallingford’s Men’s 1st team convincingly beat OMT 5-1 at home.
Tim Chamberlain also netted twice as the side, who suffered relegation from MBBO Regional Division 1, signed off their season on a high note. A week previously we lost 5-0 to Oxford Hawks 2nd, but the OMT victory was a fine way to finish.
Goals from Jayden Zamler (2), Harry Capon, Ed Jenkin and Ben White saw our 2nd XI end their campaign with a 5-3 win at Marlow 3rd. The victory helped them finish their first season back in Division 2 in a more than respectable fourth place. Nick Henry, Steve Hudson and Michiel Knaapen fired the 3rd team to a 3-0 triumph at Ramgarhia 2nd and to fifth in Division 5.
Division 8 West champions Wallingford 4th finished their superb season with a 5-1 win over Phoenix & Ranelagh 3rd.

The 5th XI signed off with a 2-2 draw, John Rees and Matthew Fowler hitting the target, as they finished seventh in Division 9. A week earlier they earned an 8-2 win at Sonning 6th, with Jacob Sanderson (2), John Rees, Pete Satchwell, Colin Merryweather, Nick Thompson and Matthew Fowler among the goals.
Wallingford’s Ladies’ 1st team were unable to finish their Trysports Three Counties League Premier 1 campaign with a fourth straight win, losing 1-0 at Marlow 2nd. However, their strong end of season form saw them to eighth in the table. But there was better news for our 2nd XI (pictured), who were crowned Division 1 champions on the final day when beating Reading Riots 4-2. Flic scored a hat-trick, with Lily May also netting, as they got the better of South Berkshire 2nd, with whom they have had a season-long battle, by five points.
Our 3rd team were unable to sign off their Division 2 campaign with a win as they were beaten 4-0 at Oxford Hawks 5th. They finished ninth in the table. Goals from Ness Bennett and Emma Seymour helped Wallingford 4th overcome Thame 3rd 3-2 to secure sixth place in Division 5.
