Snainton FC are well on course for their second promotion in two seasons heading into the second half of the season.

They are currently topping the division two table having played 11 games so far and accumulated 22 points.

Snainton face tough opposition this season from the likes of Falsgrave, who are also tracking down their second successive promotion, and Filey Town Reserves and Edgehill Reserves, who both have games in hand on the league leaders.

Manager Dan I’Anson said: “We had a mixed start to the season but we have just started picking up form and winning more games now.”

Snainto have lost some key players this season, with the likes of Lee Drydale and Liam Cooper departing to fellow division two sides, Falsgrave and Edgehill Reserves.

But I’Anson just wants to focus on the players left behind. He added: “With players leaving and some returning we just needed to get settled and focus on the football. Injuries played a part earlier in the season but we are getting back to full strength now.”

With seven league games left, and teams such as Rosette, Flixton and Filey left to play, the pressure is still on.

I’Anson said: “There are no easy games in this division and with the other top teams left to play each other anything can happen now.”
