Two wins in three days saw Haggonfields Girls overtake county finalists East Markham in the race for Division One.

In an end to end game a single goal from Cyra Green was enough to defeat East Markham, while hat-tricks two days later from Green and Saskia Macefield gave them a win over Clarborough, the league title and entry into the Champion of Champions.

Prospect Girls just missed out on their assault on the Division Four title but had the consolation of achieving runners-up spot when a Chloe White double earned the points against Ryton Park.

Gringley lost their first encounter with Sturton-le-Steeple early in the season in a high scoring 6-5 feast of goals.

They went even closer in the return fixture when they again hit five and ended Sturton’s hundred per cent record, but could not prevent goals from Josh Storey (2), George Hudson (2) and Charlie Wright giving Sturton a share of the points.

Division Five is heading for a close finish as Clarborough continued their fine run since Christmas with a 3-1 defeat of Gamston, who in turn took vital points from league leaders East Markham in a 1-1 draw and followed this with a 2-1 success against Blyth.

Cup finalists Prospect Hill finished their fixtures when Kieron Houghton, Kian Smith, Sonny Irons and Ben Phillips were on target against Carr Hill and took over the Division One leadership from Ryton Park.

St John’s climb up the league has probably come too late inspite of a 3-1 defeat of Redlands courtesy of goals from Jaden Thackery (2) and Bradley Charlesworth. Jason Elliott replied for the visitors.

Sir Edmund Hillary were too strong for a rapidly improving St Augustine’s when Daniel Hornagold, Daniel Scott and Charlie Smith were the marksmen in a 3-1 win, and followed it with a 3-1 defeat of Serlby Park when Archie Chambers got on the scoresheet and helped them to the top of Division Two.

Priory edged in front of St Anne’s at the top of Division Three when Nathan Calvert (4), Callum Wright (2) and Tyler Witts shared the goals in the defeat of Carlton Ramsden.

Gateford Park finally got their season underway with a good performance in the defeat of Serlby Park.

Leverton conceded just three goals in five matches representing Notts in the Midland Counties Small Schools finals but without key players were unable to breach defences and finished well down their division.
