An Eltham American football team has reached the national finals after beating the Kent Exiles on Sunday.

The London Olympians continued their push for a return to the BAFA Premiership after defeating the Exiles 41-17 at Blackheath Rugby Club’s Well Hall.

Now they will face the northern conference champions, the Manchester Titans, at John Charles Centre of Sports in Leeds on August 27.

Should the Olympians be crowned Division 1 champions, they will enter the Premiership South next season with two other London-based clubs, the Blitz and Warriors.

They were relegated from the top division after going winless in 2016, losing all 10 regular season games.
