ST JOHN SONNETS will be returning to the Barbados Football Association’s Digicel Premier League next year.Sonnets edged Haggatt Hall 1-0 in their final match on Monday night to secure one of the two promotion spots from the Remy Martin Division One competition.The victory, at the Hilda Skeene playing field in St Philip, carried the St John boys, who lost just one game during the season, to the top of the standings on 51 points.While Sonnets were celebrating, KDJ Auto Parts Dayrells Road were ruing the fact that they dropped two vital points in a 1-1 draw with the lowly Eden Stars at Ellerton to end the season on 49 points.Dayrells Road are currently in second position, but can be overtaken by Lord Willoughby Tavern Bagatelle United, who are on 48 points.Bagatelle can move to 51 points should they defeat fourth-placed University of the West Indies (UWI) in their rescheduled final match at the National Stadium on Sunday at 6 p.m.A victory would make Bagatelle overall champions on a superior goal difference, but a loss would open the door for Dayrell’s Road to play in the Premiership next season. Bagatelle would nip Dayrells Road for the second promotion spot should the game end in a draw.In other results, Maxwell beat Indar Weir Travel Clarke’s Hill 2-0 and St Peter’s Cosmos defeated Haynesville 3-1.
