Taylors Garages Premier Division

Spilsby Town remain top of the table following a 3-0 away win at Heckington Millers with Conor Minor hitting two of his side’s goals. Tom Watson grabbed the other Town goal.

Skegness Town Reserves eased their relegation fears with a 3-2 home win against Billinghay Athletic, with new signing Will Britton grabbing a late winner.

Michael Parnham and Damian Howland had earlier scored for Town in a closely fought basement battle. Billinghay looked to be heading home for a hard-earned point with goals from Tom Moor and Kris Coussens until that late Britton bombshell.

Coningsby continued their rise up the table with another impressive victory, this time 3-0 at Ruskington Rovers.

Shaun Boothby struck first before Jason Cooke added goal number two. The clinching third goal came from the penalty spot when Boothby slotted home his second of the game.

Taylors Ford Division Two

Nathan Wright’s double strike helped leaders AFC Tetford to a 4-2 home win against Pointon Reserves.

Sam Harvey-Owen and Callum Cheetham also got on the scoresheet. Rob Rowlatt hit both of the Pointon goals.

Two goal hauls from Dan Thompson and Cameron Cope saw Swineshead Reserves return home from Billinghay Reserves with maximum points following a 4-1 away win.

Aaron Luther replied for the home side.

Taylors Vauxhall Division Three

Leverton started lively in their home match against Pointon ‘A’ and, after several spells of possession, were rewarded when striker Dom Goddard sent the ball flying into the top corner from outside of the area, giving the keeper no chance.

Leverton extended their lead soon after when Deividas Urbsys was brought down in the box and the same player dispatched the resultant penalty. The second half started in similar fashion and, if it wasn’t for the crossbar stopping a bullet header, Leverton would have been 3-0 up within the first 10 minutes, before Pointon launched their amazing fightback.

The visitors had started to threaten more and when an initial shot was saved, they pounced on the rebound to pull a goal back. The away side’s luck started to show when they were awarded a soft penalty and they duly tucked it away for the equaliser.

Both sides threatened to grab the crucial winner but it was Pointon who snatched victory with just a few minutes remaining. Pointon’s match winners were Mark Smith who grabbed two and Sam Husband. Final score 3-2.

Old Doningtonians hit three goals at home against Northgate Olympic but still ended up empty-handed.

The Dons scored through Liam Barnett and Brandon Harker, as both sides were locked at 2-2 when the interval arrived before Northgate edged in front in the second half.

A Brandon Harker penalty brought The Dons level at 3-3 before the visitors snatched victory. The Dons were left kicking themselves, however, when they could have salvaged a point after they were awarded a second half penalty, but Harker allowed Danny Goodacre to take the spot-kick and the ball was fired against the crossbar. Final score 4-3.
