Sleaford Town concluded their UCL Premier campaign with a 3-2 victory at home to Newport Pagnell Town.

It was a stylish way to finish their highest-ever finish in the division, and their first under manager Paul Ward.

The third-placed Swans took the lead through Dave Baker in the 35th minute, only for Jack Pemberton to level things up three minutes later.

The Greens edged in front in the 71st minute as Ryan Oliver converted from the penalty spot.

However, things were levelled up yet again via a Chris Skipper own goal.

But the best was yet to come as Eslaforde Park as Oliver settled the result in the 83rd minute, his 29th goal of the campaign.

The Greens finished Saturday night sixth in the UCL Premier standings, before the final midweek matches were played.

Sleaford Town Reserves sit fourth in the Lincolnshire League following the weekend’s last-gasp defeat at Wyberton.

The title challengers came from behind to win 2-1 in the last minute.
