IMG 3188ARA double strike by Tony Mendy secured a sixth place finish for Saints and also guaranteed the Golden Boot for himself as the Division’s top scorer.

For opponents Leighton, defeat consigned them to relegation and they were left to hope for a reprieve in the summer shake up.

Saints made three changes to last week’s side with John Sonuga and Michael Murray making bench swaps with Alex Paine and Craige Tomkins while Remmel Clarke returned after injury. Clarke was presented with the Supporters’ Player of the Season just before the game.

Leighton had to win if they were to have a chance of survival but Saints had much of the early play and a succession of chances fell their way, with Mendy failing to make the most of the space he was allowed. Bradley Kirkwood in the visitor’s goal was peppered from all angles but the clearest chance came when was drawn off his line by a strong run by Jack Mullan across the box and the pass set up Michael Murray but he skyed his shot with the goal gaping.

On chances alone, Saints should have had the game sewn up before the break but as is so often the case, they were punished for their profligacy. A series of chances fell to the visitors which Garry Malone had to be sharp to keep out and with the defence unable to clear their lines Alkali Darboe slammed home to give Leighton an interval lead.

IMG 3307ARAny thoughts of league safety Leighton might have entertained didn’t linger long after the restart as Lewis Ochoa set up Jack Mullan for an equaliser and soon after Mullan turned provider as his lob found Tony Mendy and he made no mistake to claim his 30th league goal.

The introduction of Alex Paine livened up the Saints midfield and with Leighton seemingly resigned to their fate Ochoa set up Paine to give Saints a crucial two goal cushion. The visitors kept plugging away gamely so Malone and his defence couldn’t afford to relax. They were undone in the closing minutes when a speculative cross by Ben Gallant completely fooled Malone and sailed over the despairing keeper into the far corner.

News that Hanwell’s win elsewhere ruled out any chance for survival and the final coup de grace was delivered by Tony Mendy with a sublime lob over the keeper to ease Saints to a comfortable win and a fitting close to a season that saw Saints finish in a best ever sixth place.

Saints:  Garry Malone, Remmel Clarke, Craig Carby, John Sonuga (Alex Paine 71), Ryan Wharton, Alan Hedley, Lewis Ochoa, Jack Mullan, Michael Murray (Craige Tomkins 71), Tony Mendy, Adam Louth (Anthony Thomas 82).
