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.
Ed Hodgson scored twice for Bingham Town in their 6-2 win over Bilborough Town. James Archer, Mike Jepps, Lewis Ray and Tom Spencer were also on target. Papa Fell netted on debut for Bilborough alongside a Cardell Labban effort.
FC Cavaliers blanked AFC Dunkirk 3-0 with goals from Liam Taylor (2) and Reece Campbell.
Eastwood CFC Development edged past Magdala Amateurs 3-2. The Easywood goals were shared between Deniz Aris, Ross Cheeseman and Dalton Stephens; Mathew Daley and Gareth Bentley replied for The Budgies.
Radcliffe Olympic would have believed they were on course for their first points in 10 matches when they were leading 3-1 deep into their encounter with Gedling Southbank, however the division's bottom side scored three late goals to pick up only their second win of the season, 4-3. Kai Partington (2), Thomas Jeffries and Luke Pickard scored for Gedling; Jay Murphy, Travahn Seaton and Joshua Hamilton for Radcliffe.
In Division One, leaders Woodthorpe Park Rangers dropped points for only the third time this season, being held 1-1 by Mansfield Hosiery Mills.
Liam Honeyman netted twice for Bridgford United in their 4-3 win against Ruddington Village which sees them move to 17 points behind Woodthorpe with three games in hand. They have also opened up a four point gap to Burton Joyce in third who drew 1-1 with Southwell City Reserves.
Joshua Broad grabbed two for Ravenshead in a 4-2 win at Kirton Brickworks that sees them hold on to fourth place, as Basford United Community in fifth were also winners, 2-0 against Kimberley Miners Welfare.
Bestwood Miners Welfare jump ahead of their opponents AFC Bridgford on goal difference in mid-table following a 2-1 win.
Awsworth Villa Reserves drew 3-3 with Radford Reserves and Selston Reserves beat Wollaton Reserves 2-1.
At the summit of Division Two, Ruddington Village moved level on points with AFC Top Valley after beating them 4-2 in their top of the table clash.
Newark Flowserve Reserves overcame Nottingham Community 9-0, including four goals for Tyler Martin, one of which was a stunning long range volley. Keyworth United Development went one better, however, seeing off Sneinton Town 10-0.
Stapleford Town Reserves won 4-2 against Cotgrave Reserves while Bingham Town Reserves halted Robin Hood Colts' four game winning streak, drawing 2-2.
A Marcel Ludew double helped Barrowby on their way to a 6-0 win over Magdala Amateurs Reserves and AFC Clifton and Ravenshead Reserves drew 1-1.
