With no game for the 1st team the spotlight fell on the veterans who were both hosting their opposition at Old Road.
The 35s put last weeks 1-0 defeat at Dinnington Town behind them as the scored 6 of the best in beating Thorncliffe FC. Leading 5-0 at the break they took their foot off the pedal in the second period allowing the visitors to put some respectability to the score but they were good value for the 6-3 win with Steve Ellor grabbing 4 while their were further goals for Craig Jackson & Lee Parkinson. Currently lying in 4th spot the team travel to Mosbrough Trinity next week.
Sitting pretty at the top of the league the 45s had the chance to extend their advantage but fell to a surprising 1-0 home defeat to Civil Sports. In fairness the team never got going throughout the whole 90 minutes with far too many off the pace, that said the visitors were no better and it took a soft penalty given by the referee for something that no one else saw for Civil Sports to separate the teams. The 45s still sit at the summit of the division but now have top billing on goal difference. No game for the 45s next week.
