Meadow loss not enough to give Peasy hope ... yet!

PETERSHILL were thrown a lifeline at the weekend after their title chasing rivals Irvine Meadow XI lost a vital away win.

The 3-1 result against Ashfield at Saracen Park, however, has not got co-manager Scott Smith jumping for joy just yet as he insists there is still a long way to go.

He said: “To be fair I think they need to lose a couple more games, it is too early for us to get excited.

“One defeat will not mean they lose the title race, we have already resigned ourselves to the fact we are not going to win.”

Petershill sit at the top of the Super League Premier with 43 points but Irvine Meadow XI still have six games in hand.

If Irvine Meadow XI win all remaining games, they will the league with 51 points.

Peasy players have had 10 days off but will return to training on Wednesday and Saturday to begin preparations for the Evening Times Junior Cup, which is expected to begin in a month.

Peasy have been drawn against the winners of the second division which is to be announced.
