In the Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division, three fixtures survived the weather. Awsworth Villa moved into second place outright with a 1-1 draw at Bingham Town. Ryan Whitehurst put Villa ahead in the second half but Mike Jepps ensured the hosts shared the spoils.
Southwell City were unable to capitalise on Awsworth dropping points as they suffered a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Calverton Miners Welfare. Dane Bennett and Ryan Easom netted for Calvo with Dalton Stephens replying for City. Ady Osborne saved a second half Southwell penalty to ensure his side held onto the three points.
In a mid-table encounter Magdala Amateurs ran out 4-2 winners at Gedling Southbank. Ben Soar put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot after a quarter of an hour but Neil Morgan equalised as the match headed to half-time. Stephen Ahern then put Magdala ahead for the first time 10 minutes into the second period before Reiss Coy levelled matters with the goal of the game from 30 yards. Parity wasn’t restored for long however, as Chris Hayes put the Budgies ahead once again then Gareth Bentley put the icing on the cake in the 80th minute.
In Division One, Keyworth United Reserves moved within a point of top spot, albeit having played three more matches than leaders Netherfield Albion, with a 4-2 win over Wollaton Reserves. Scott Litchfield bagged a brace for Keyworth, alongside Ian Marley and Conor Pauley efforts. Roy Killeavy and Alex Reeves replied for Wollaton.
In Division Two, a Markell Bailey hat-trick helped Woodthorpe Park Rangers maintain their two point lead in the table as they won 5-1 at Barrowby. Adam Forry and Daniel Walker were also on target for Woodthorpe; Darren Wilkes with Barrowby’s consolation.
A solitary Nathan Francis strike was sufficient to see Bridgford United past Underwood Villa Reserves 1-0.
Newark Flowserve Reserves saw off Keyworth United Development 2-0 with goals from Callum Barnes and Joe Bilton.
In a see-saw encounter between Gedling Southbank Reserves and AFC Clifton it was the side from south of the Trent that eventually prevailed 5-4. Jordan Sharpe (3), Jake Bell and Ryan Pearson scored for Clifton; there was a brace for both Karl Clowery-Atherley and Kian Leavesley for Gedling.
