Carshalton Athletic enjoyed a mixed Bank Holiday weekend as their play-off aspirations now go down to the last game of the season

The Robins remained third in the Bostik Premier on Good Friday as Ricky Korboa scored twice in a 2-0 victory against relegation-threatened Burgess Hill Town at Colston Avenue.

But a crunch match at play-off rivals Tonbridge Angels ended in rare defeat as the home side won 1-0 and the two clubs swapped places in the league.

Seven clubs can now mathematically make the four play-off spots and fourth-placed Carshalton have to play in-form Bishop's Stortford on Saturday, but victory against their fifth-placed opponents will secure the Robins a coveted top five finish.

"The game (at Tonbridge) wasn't the best and 0-0 would've been a fair result in all honesty," said Robins defender Kalvin Morath-Gibbs.

"Fair play to Tonbridge for taking their only chance. We didn't create much ourselves which was disappointing but I didn't feel like we deserved to lose on the day."

That result, coupled with others elsewhere, now means Carshalton's margin for error is razor-thin when Bishop's Stortford arrive at Colston Avenue for the final day of the official league season.

Their visitors have won their last seven consecutive league games while Carshalton have won their last eight home matches.

"We know what we have to do this Saturday, a win will be enough for us to be in the play-offs and that's what we are all aiming for," added Morath-Gibbs.

"A draw might also be enough but then we are relying on other teams dropping points, which isn't ideal, so it's three points or bust in our eyes."

Carshalton Athletic vs Bishop's Stortford is on Saturday, KO 3pm.

Two former children’s home workers, including one from Sutton, have been jailed after they were found guilty of sexually abusing three boys aged under 13 in the 1970s

73 year old Bernard Collins from Sutton was found guilty of five counts of indecent assault.

He was sentenced to four years in jail earlier today.

69 year old Patrick Grant from Cardiff was found guilty of ten counts of indecent assault.

He was sentenced to eight years in jail.

The abuse was committed against three boys who were in the care of Grant and Collins whilst residents at children's homes in Lambeth, Kingston and Cardiff.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command under Operation Trinity launched an investigation after a victim came forward to speak to police in 2014.

As enquiries progressed, another victim disclosed that he was indecently assaulted by Grant and Collins when he was a resident at Fircroft Children's Home, Kingston in 1976 aged just 11 years old.

A further victim was also identified as a result of police enquiries.

Both men were charged with indecent assault last April.

During the trial, the court heard that between 1976 and 1989, three boys aged between 10 and 13 were abused when in the care of local authorities and residents at;

Fircroft Childrens Home, Kingston
Rowan House, Shirley Oaks Childrens Home, Lambeth
Walker House Children's Home, Llanishen, South Wales.

Detective Sergeant Paul Pringle from the Met's Operation Trinity said: "This is a case which dates back more than 40 years, but despite the length of time since the incidents, these men will now face justice for the appalling crime they committed.

“Grant and Collins abused their positions of trust within the care homes and exploited the trust placed upon them.

“The victims have had to live their lives carrying the trauma and lasting effects of the abuse imposed upon them by Grant and Collins at such young ages.

“They have shown great courage in coming forward to police and reporting the horrific abuse they endured.

“I hope today's conviction brings them some measure of closure and I would urge anyone who has been a victim of child sexual abuse to contact police. Specially trained officers will be there to support you."

A report into the failings of Crossrail suggests that the Commissioner of TfL “reflects on whether he is fit to fulfill his role”

It accuses Mike Brown of downplaying risks when making weekly updates to the Mayor.

Crossrail was managed by an independent board, to avoid them being caught up in politics.

However, the report also attacks their “lack of skills” in later stages, and a fixation on the original deadline.

The line is planned to run from Reading and Heathrow, out to Sheffield and Abbey Wood.

It received a bailout last year of over a billion pounds.

Both TfL and the Mayor’s Office say the responsibility lies with the former management of Crossrail Limited, and deny any inaccurate information was passed.
