KILBURN Cosmos are already setting their sights on new targets after beating Saracens Amateurs to secure their league status with one game to play.

The Cosmos, promoted from Herts/Middx Division Two South last year, gained their third win in four games on Saturday to make certain of staying in Division One.

Club chairman Phil Morgan said: "We can say with conviction that we have played a hard and competitive season, giving the top teams a run for their money and that we belong in this division.

"Next season we hope to move to a new ground and will be looking to new horizons at all levels of Kilburn Cosmos with more fast, entertaining, running rugby."

Kilburn, who were formed in 1996, have continued to expand this season, with the second XV reaching the Middlesex Merit Table play-offs and the ladies' team finishing mid-table in their maiden league campaign.

The club, who are currently based at Aylestone Avenue, Brondesbury Park, also run thriving tag, mini and youth sections for boys and girls aged seven to 17.

Morgan added: "Credit must go to the team managers and captains, who have put in a phenomenal effort, and the players themselves have really risen to the challenge."

The Cosmos finish their season at Hitchin a week on Saturday and could even finish as high as fourth in the table if they win and other results go in their favour.
