In the Precision Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division, Clifton All Whites kept up the pace at the top of the table with a 9-0 win at Nottingham Trent University.

The floodgates opened after the break, however, as Clifton netted four in 11 minutes – Hardy and Litchfield doubled their tallies, David Hawkes and Lavell White also notched. White got his second before being replaced by Corbi Brown who promptly made it 8-0. Hardy rounded out his hat-trick to complete the scoring.
The win lifts Clifton nine points clear after Bilborough Town went down 4-2 to Newark Flowserve. A Tom Potts first half double put Newark in the ascendency. The two sides traded goals in the second period with Liam Moran and Joe Hurst netting for Flowserve, Lyam Webster and Tony Law for Bilborough.
