Yates eased back into life in Worksop Division One with a comfortable 3-0 win over Langold Old Boys.

They began the scoring inside five minutes with a goal by Antony Walker, capitalising on a mistake by ex Yates keeper Ian Parry after Richard Harvey crossed.

Yates’ defence stood up to lots of pressure, but they were well organised by Kirk Bradshaw and Landold Old Boys could not get though.

Just before the break Ben Brown took on four men then rolled the ball to Liam Bolton and he scored from 30 yards out for his third of the season.

In the second half Yates pushed for their third goal but it didn’t come until the last minute when Carl Jacks ran from the halfway line and scored.

Man of the Match for Yates was Bolton but Steven Minshall who was in the net for this game came in a very close second with an outstanding performance.

Stanley Street Galacticos also ran out big winners in Division One, hammering Worksop Borough 4-1.

Galacticos started slowly, with Worksop Borough having the better of the early exchanges.

With the game 0-0 at half-time Boro started well again and went in front through Booth, after following up a well-hit free-kick.

Galacticos introduced Wiltshire who made an instant impact with a solo goal to equalise.

Durrant was brought on and curled in from 18 yards to score.

With Galacticos now in total control Sweetnam scored from inside the six-yard box, then Turner rounded off a great display to complete the scoring.

In Division Two Breakers Wasps stung the Emeralds 3-1 to go top of the league.

Wasps took the lead inside two minutes when target man Chris Rose curled a free-kick into the top corner.

Emeralds fought back with a lot of grit and determination and got their reward on 40 minutes when Storey stabbed home from close range.

Wasps made a double substitution at half-time with Ward and Hume coming on to change the momentum of the game.

The league’s top scorer Evans fired past the impressive Mark Clarke to put the Wasps in front on 50 minutes.

Childs then made two world class saves for the Wasps before a Rose free-kick was headed home by Rodgers, making it 3-1 and sending the Wasps to the top of the league.

The Division Two game between Millhouse and Kilton Rovers started fiercely, and when the dust settled Rovers picked up a 2-0 win.

The referee had to calm things down after some meaty tackles flew in, and Rovers put on the early pressure but struggled to finish.

The Mill tried to get onto the long balls from the back, but it turned out to be more of a tennis game with the ball going from one keeper to another.

In the second half Rovers continued the pressure and a half cleared corner found a Rovers midfielder who rifled his volley into the top corner.

The Mill were unable to answer, they did have some good attacks but all efforts were straight at the Rovers keeper.

Rovers finished the game with a simple header to make it 2-0.
