KENTISH Town were confirmed champions of the Spartan South Midlands League on Saturday following their midweek demolition of Cheshunt Reserves in Hertfordshire.
Town started last Tuesday's must-win match four points clear of their nearest rivals Hoddesdon Town and Haringey Borough.
The Copthall outfit knew that a win over 10th placed Cheshunt would guarantee promotion to the premier league for the first time in the club's history.

Tom McMullen's squad, who have won 23 of their 36 games this season, quickly took the leadon Tuesday when goal-machine Lee Scott opened the scoring in the 25th minute.
Cheshunt rallied, but were unable to match Town, who were promoted to division one four years ago, and the scoreline remained the same at halftime.
But in the second half Town stormed onto the pitch, intent on achieving their dreams, and David Dawson quickly doubled their lead when he netted in the 48th minute.
And then Jonathan Donoghue wrapped it up when he banged in Town's third goal of the contest three minutes later to clinch promotion.
Furthermore, Kentish Town press secretary Cliff Rhodes believes the squad are in great shape for the future.
"It was a fantastic performance, taking into account what was at stake," he said.
"We went about our business well and went out and did the job. I think we are more than capable of winning the premier division if we can keep our squad together."
Club secretary Kevin Young reiterated the importance of continuing the momentum. "I would say it was a comfortable performance," he said.
"We were in control for most of the game. It was a good all-round performance and if we can keep the squad together we will have a good chance of keeping our place in the premier division.
"It is very much going into the unknown. It is exciting for next season."
Kentish Town squad: McDaid, Butler , R Quattromini, Kanaris, T McMullen, Cole, Rivera, Dawson, Scott, Donoghue, Fofana, Looney, D Quattromini, Meerza, Doyle, Williamson.
