Berkhamsted put the disappointment of their midweek cup final defeat behind them and finished the season with a 2-1 home win over AFC Dunstable.

In the end, the Comrades had to settle for fifth spot in the SSML Premier Division table.

Berko made the perfect start with Jamie Gavin putting the Comrades in front, and Connor Calcutt doubled the advantage from the penalty spot in the 27th minute.

It was his 43rd goal of the season and equalled James Arsmtrong’s club record for goals in a season.

Josh Chamberlain looked like increasing Berko’s lead but missed three decent chances, and Dunstable reduced the deficit when Jamal Harvey scored with a shot that crept over the line with 20 minutes left.

James Towell almost added a third for Berko, but the game ended 2-1.
