Rampant Newark Seal The Title
In the Nottinghamshire Senior League, Newark Flowserve confirmed the seemingly inevitable as they claimed the Premier Division title with a 15-0 demolition of Ruddington Village. The 2016 champions fought to the end but were no match for rampant Newark. A Sam Agar brace set the ball rolling before Elliot King and Solomon Miller got in on the act. Lee Potts, the mid-season signing from Cotgrave, then opened his account for the day before King completed a first half hat-trick to make it 7-0 at the break. In the second period it became a competition between the two strikers to see who could score the most with Potts adding five to his tally, to give him a double hat-trick, and King a further two, making it five for him in total. Jack Beckett was on hand to put the cherry on the icing on the cake with the 15th and final goal.
FC Cavaliers are up to second following their 4-1 win over Wollaton. David Kolapo bagged a brace alongside efforts from Ako Abdullah and Ochi Fraser. Jake Fisher got Wollo’s consolation.
Bingham Town continued their push for a top three finish with a 3-0 victory against Kimberley Miners Welfare. Mike Jepps opened the scoring in the first half. Midway through the second period Andy Nicholson notched for the first time this season on his 28th appearance then Jay Archer rounded out the win.
Underwood Villa moved up to 15th with a 5-1 win against Gedling Southbank.
In Division One, Keyworth United Reserves moved into top spot, albeit having played two more games than Netherfield Albion, as they saw off Kirton Brickworks 5-0. The prolific Scott Litchfield netted a hat-trick with Benjamin Clark and Ian Marley also on target.

In Division Two, Woodthorpe Park Rangers, having secured a place in the NSL Junior Cup final in midweek, maintained their push for a double with a 6-0 win at Welbeck Lions Reserves, while Bridgford United showed that they’re still not out of it with a 3-1 victory at Newark Flowserve Reserves.
