An Eltham American football club could reach the national finals if they win this Sunday.

After finishing the season top of their division with a 6-3-1 record, the London Olympians won a 55-29 shootout against the Solent Thrashers last week to book their place in the semi-finals.

Now they will take on the Kent Exiles at Blackheath Rugby Club in Kidbrooke Lane on August 13, with the winner taking on either the Leicester Falcons or Manchester Titans of the northern conference.

This will be the third encounter between the Olympians and Exiles, with the Exiles winning 33-26 at Blackheath Rugby Club on July 25 to end the regular season.
