POULTON finished a fine season in the league with the runners-up spot and clinched their final three points with a 3-0 victory over Sherston.
Cirencester League Div One
Poulton were under pressure for long periods in the game played at Down Ampney FC until Will Power gave them the lead after 38 minutes.
John Dawson made it 2-0 straight after the break and a third goal from Andrew Pritchett settled the issue 10 minutes from the end.
Sherston certainly didn't look like a side facing relegation, and Poulton goalkeeper Gary Morris had to make some crucial saves early on.
Poulton were confirmed in second place the following evening when South Cerney, needing a point at CHQ, went down 9-0.
