Braintree Town win Blue Square Bet South title

Braintree Town

Braintree Town have won promotion to the Blue Square Bet Premier Division.

The Iron clinched the Blue Square Bet South championship without playing as nearest rivals Farnborough suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat against Woking.

Braintree are seven points clear of Farnborough with two games left and the Essex club will next season be playing at the highest level in their history.

Rod Stringer's side moved to the brink of promotion with a tense 1-0 victory over Hampton & Richmond on Friday.
