Shelf FC are bracing themselves for one final effort as they bid to become Haslem-Sheppard Halifax AFL champions.

They were 7-1 home winners over Greetland last night and now need only a draw in their last game of the season against Shelf United at Westwood Park on Friday evening to take the silverware.

Goals from Matty Hartley (2), Alex O’Keefe (2), Josh Hartley, Sam Henderson and Callum Lewis did the trick against recent Challenge Cup winners Greetland with Jonny Crowther replying.

Shelf FC were making it four wins in 12 days, after a huge fixture backlog, as they bid to overtake long-time leaders Ryburn United.
