POTTERS Bar finished 17th in the Ryman Division One North after their 1-0 win at runners-up AFC Sudbury on Saturday.

Champions Dartford ended their successful campaign with a 1-0 victory over Wingate & Finchley.

Redbridge claimed a play-off spot despite losing 2-0 at Brentwood Town.

Canvey Island won 2-0 at home to Enfield Town to also cement their play-off position.

Ware snatched a post season spot with a 5-2 victory over Edgware Town.

For the Blues, striker John Frendo hit a hat-trick to claim the golden boot with 32 goals this season.

It was the same score at Cricklefield Stadium, where Witham Town lost to hosts Ilford, who ended in the second relegation place.

Elie Kayembi's early goal for Ilford was cancelled out by Michael Lowes, but Carl Bruce, Petrit Elbi, twice and Earl Sterling made it 5-1 before Rob King pulled a goal back.

Ilford would have been safe from relegation had Tilbury not won 4-2 at Arlesey Town.

The Dockers led through Bradley Smith and Paul King, before Leon Gutzmore and Obi Nene restored parity.

But Kurt Smith made it 3-2 and Tom Poole's fourth saw Tilbury safe by two goals.

Bottom of the table Wivenhoe Town also signed off with a win in vain.

They needed both Ilford and Tilbury to fail to win for their 3-1 success at Waltham Forest to matter.

Lee Underwood opened the scoring at the Spicer McColl Stadium, Witham, but Waltham Forest were level soon after half-time courtesy of Dazemend Baulti. Two Daniel Flack goals gave the Dragons their victory.

Waltham Abbey won 2-0 over Maldon Town at Capershotts.

Northwood finished the season on a winning 1-0 note against Great Wakering Rovers at Chestnut Avenue.

The play-off semi-finals took place last night (Tuesday) and Redbridge beat Ware 4-2.

AFC Sudbury lost 3-2 after extra time to Canvey Island in the other semi.

The play-off final between the Motormen and the Gulls will be on Saturday.
