In the Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League, supported by Euro Soccer Company, Stapleford Town missed the opportunity to open a four point gap between themselves and Southwell City at the top of the Premier Division after Bingham Town beat them 2-1 at Hickings Lane. This was only Stapleford’s second defeat of the season, the other being in the return fixture at Butt Field in early October. The visitors took an early lead through Tom Spencer and saw it through to half time at 1-0. Stapleford have been known to up their game in the second period of matches and duly found their equaliser from Joshua Watts with half an hour remaining. Parity was not restored for long, however, as Mike Jepps converted a corner at the back post for Bingham only five minutes later, thereby snapping Stapleford’s nine match winning streak.

The Premier Division has new leaders...
In the Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League, supported by Euro Soccer Company, there is a new team at the top of the Premier Division after Southwell City threw away a two goal lead to lose 4-3 against Aslockton & Orston while Stapleford Town came away from Attenborough with a 5-0 win.
Stapleford will have fancied themselves as leaders elect for quite some time now as they have had at least four games in hand on their rivals since early autumn. Their win at Attenborough, courtesy of Alex Ford (2), Adam Hassell (2) and Jeremy Millenstead, was their ninth on the trot in the league.
Previous leaders Southwell have had a dip in form since the festive period but would have felt that wobble was behind them when they were two to the good inside 15 minutes. Blair Bryant fired home the rebound after Stewart Gill's effort hit the post before Gill himself got the second with the help of a deflection. Pierce Hallam put Aslockton on the board from their first meaningful attack, midway through the first half, and Julian Joachim levelled matters from the penalty spot before the break. Joachim turned the tie around on 65 minutes before Lewis Bonham gave the visitors some breathing space. A Calum Law free kick reduced the arrears with a quarter of an hour remaining but the damage was already done.
Cotgrave, in third, failed to narrow the gap to the top after they went down 1-0 at home to Sandiacre Town. There is some debate as to whether Jordan Smith scored or if it was an own goal.
Awsworth Villa arrested a run of four straight defeats with a 6-3 win at Wollaton. The hosts had been two ahead at one point, through Scott Carlile and Adam Whitemore, as well as pulling level at 3-3 thanks to a Joshua Stevenson penalty, but a brace each for Kasey Fisher and Liam Towle, and strikes from Ben Watson and Jake Fisher proved too much.

Kai Partington (2), Thomas Jeffries and Luke Pickard scored for Gedling; Jay Murphy, Travahn Seaton and Joshua Hamilton for Radcliffe.
