There was no cup joy for our Boston Saturday League sides in the third round of the Sharman Burgess Cup last weekend.

Runaway Premier Division leaders Pointon were edged out 1-0 at home to Swineshead Institute, while Ruskington Rovers were heavily beaten, 5-2, by Benington.

And second-placed Premier Division side Fulbeck fell to a cup shock as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Division One outfit Skegness United.

In Division One, Pointon Reserves also slipped to defeat, 3-1 against in-form JFC Seniors who made it six straight league wins.

But struggling Caythorpe managed to pull off a great 6-1 away win in Division Two - only their second of the season - at Coningsby Reserves.

Division Three side Boston College Reserves had a good 5-2 victory at Digby, while Northgate Olympic ran away with a 7-1 win over Leverton Reserves to move within seven points of leaders Skegness Town A.
