Innings celebrate.

Division One leaders Greendale Oak added three more points to the tally but gave Todwick Villa a head start in a 6-1 victory.

Tom Mullen grabbed a hat-trick, this third a precise curler with the outside of his boot, the quality of which was matched by a 25-yard left-foot volley from Leigh Warriner.

Daniel Wiltshire netted his 24th goal of the campaign with a penalty and Steven Wankiewicz completed the scoring with his chest.

Innings FC continued their winning run on Sunday and made it 10 league wins from 10 with a 6-1 victory over Rhodesia FC.

Kieran Mead opened the scoring following in on a Joe Green free kick which was parried by the goalkeeper.

He then went on to complete his hat-trick inside the first 20 minutes.

Ricky Bolton hit the back of the net from the spot before Rhodesia pulled a goal back shortly before half time.

Midway through the second half Ricky Bolton added his second and Innings' fifth, slotting home a defence-splitting through ball by Blaine Humphrey.

John Fox then rounded off the scoring firing home from inside the penalty area after the ball fell to him from a corner.

The game also saw the welcome return of Joe Medlycott in the closing stages as he made his first appearance in almost eight months after recovering from a leg break.

A win on Sunday against Worksop Lions will see Innings FC crowned Division Two champions.

In cold but near-perfect conditions, Kilton Rovers came out on top against a resilient Shireoaks Sports.

The early exchanges were modest and end-to-end with not a lot between the two teams.

Mistakes and over playing from the back saw Oaks go behind after conceding a penalty which was converted by Carl Jacks.

Jacks was on the scoresheet again after more mistakes from the Oaks while Button added further goals.

The second half followed in the same vein, Shireoaks architects of their own downfall.

Kilton ran out comfortable winners and keeping up the pace for a top-two finish.
