a 1-1 draw at hosts Stannington Rangers. Wadsley will now entertain

defined for offside, but they took the lead 10 minutes into the second
half with a Curtis Dennison strike. Stannington came back strong and
scored a well placed free kick with 15mins to go, but that was the end

lead. Matt Godley added a second when he latched onto a loose ball in
the box and a Matt Claxton header made it three before half time.
After the break Ssixs had a chance to get back into it when they were
awarded a penalty, but it was saved by Joker keeper Jordan Turner. Adam
Daughtrey’s cross from the bye line found a leaping Ben Thornton to head
home the fourth and Thornton made it five when he despatched a spot kick
after James Hardeman had been felled in the box.
RBL climbed back to second after Dave Millen (right) put them on their
way to a 3-2 victory over Stannington Village. Stannington had the first
chance, but Sam Eric blazed over when well positioned and instead it was
RBL that took a half-time lead
when Mikey Vella’s corner was met with a thumping header from Dave
Millen. The second half started with three goals in the first four
minutes. Jay Carter doubled RBL’s lead after a minute, firing in left
footed, and the goal of the game came 2 minutes later when Carter beat
his man and crossed for Josh Savage to dummy the ball for Harley Wilson
to a slot home. Stannington pulled a goal back a minute later with a
good Joel Purkiss finish. Stannington pushed harder to get back into it
and eventually scored a second when Purkiss crossed for Jack Holmes to
head home and they almost equalised when
glanced narrowly wide in injury time, but RBL hung on to complete the
double over the champions for the first time.
Royal Earl also dropped points after a George Rudd double helped WB
Pheasant to a 3-3 draw with them. Alex Rippon opened the scoring for
Earl, bjut it was soon cancelled out by George Rudd. Connor Chapell hit
a terrific free-kick to put Earl back in front, but Rudd produced
another good finish to make it 2-2 by the interval. Pheasant took a
deserved lead after the break with an Eimar Gadour strike, but a late
Tom Roebuck goal rescued a point for Earl.

Inter with a 3-0 win.
A tight end to end game saw Eckington take the lead in the 34th minute

deflected into the goal. It was soon 2-0 in the 37th minute, a ball
looped up into the air and was met by Owen Ryan to side foot home.

lead. The second half saw Jackson double the lead with another smart
finish across the front post hitting the bar and in, and more Jubilee
pressure resulted in a corner which was met by the head of Alfie smith
to make it 3-0. Tom Davis scored a consolation for the visitors, but it
was Jubilee’s sharpness in both boxes that was the real difference
between the two sides.

restored Southey's lead when he ran onto a Jamie Hopkins flick on and
fired home. Hopkins then made it 3 - 1 when his effort from the edge of

Crookes a share of the points.

good game to watch, but once Winter Green got their noses in front the
result was never in doubt once. Doman scored twice, with Ryan Ruddiforth
and Jack Squires one each, but it was the outstanding Jake
Corbally-Lidgett that claimed the MOM nomination. Oaks briefly gave
themselves a chance when a Laurence Jeffrey-Badger free kick was put
over the keeper by Sean Owens, but it was finally a sunny day for Winter
