TJ’S A claimed the Cowley Workers ODDA Premier League title in fine fashion.

The runaway leaders continued their perfect season with a 13th straight success.

They hammered visiting Croft Bar 7-2 to move to 99 points for the campaign.

Bullnose Morris missed a chance to close the gap on Section 3 leaders Cricketers Arms A, who have completed their fixtures.

A 5-4 home defeat to Duke of Monmouth left them seven points off top spot with one match remaining.

Section 4 could still be won by one of three different teams.

New Club have finished their programme, but stayed top by a single point as second-placed Kings Arms crashed to a 6-3 defeat at George Bar A, who are eight points off top spot and could still finish first.

Cowley Workers C clinched the Section 5 title with their 12th win out of 12, dishing out an 8-1 hammering to Prince of Wales.

The ladies’ Premier League title will go to the wire.

Cricketers Arms went top by a single point following a 7-2 victory over Bletchingdon Social Club.

TJ’s B lifted the Section 3 crown with a 9-0 thrashing of Six Bells.

Ampleforth Arms moved five points clear in Section 4 after a 6-3 win at East Oxford Conservative Club.
