Taylors Garages Premier Division

There was only one top flight game because of The Willoughby Cup ties and that match took place at a resurgent Ruskington Rovers who continued their move away from the relegation zone with an impressive 6-2 home win against Heckington Millers.

Mitchell Gorman and Sam Jackson both struck two goals apiece, while Ashley Farmer and new signing Ronaldo Pereira also got on the scoresheet.

The Millers had found themselves 5-1 down at half time and although they improved greatly in the second half, the game was by then well out of reach.

The Heckington goals came from Sean Jenkinson and Liam Tunstall.

Callum Cheetham hit two goals for AFC Tetford in their 3-2 home win against Billinghay Reserves while Nathan Wright grabbed the other goals.

There was no upset at Park United where Swineshead were the visitors and although the home side, from Division Two, gave a spirited performance, there was no denying the Premier side who ran out 6-0 winners.
