Yaxley are still top of the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division following a comprehensive 5-1 home win over Leicester Nirvana on Saturday.

Former Sileby Rangers defender Dalton Bettles netted his first goal for the leaders to put them in front, but Shaquille Master levelled things up for the Leicester side.

Dan Cotton and Phil Stebbing put Yaxley in charge, before the formidable Cotton bagged two more to complete another hat-trick and take their tally to five.

Wisbech Town will be champions if they win their last two games after an even more resounding 6-0 thrashing of Oadby Town.

Jon Fairweather got the ball rolling in the 11th minutes and Alex Beck (31) and Josh Ford (45) had made it three before the break.

Ford (56 & 70) completed his hat-trick and, Beck got his second (76) as The Fenmen now sit a point behind the leaders with a game in hand.

If Yaxley win at Kirby Muxloe tomorrow night, Wisbech will have to win both their remaining games to pip them as The Cuckoos are already 21 goals better off.

In one of those ironic twists, both the Fenmen’s remaining fixtures are against Daventry Town.

Newport Pagnell Town will have to hope for a slip-up from the top two now after losing 2-1 at ten-men Holbeach United.

Charley Sanders gave the Tigers the lead after 5 minutes but was sent-off again after using his elbow after just 14.

Dave Baker header The Swans level, but their promotion dreams took a real bashing when Mitch Griffiths grabbed a winner for the home side 2 minutes from time.

They can still do it if they win their final two games, but they are reliant on Yaxley and Wisbech dropping points to do so.

Eynesbury Rovers cruised to a 3-0 win at Desborough, meaning their hosts cannot catch them in sixth spot.

A James Tricks brace and one from Hayden Bream giving them maximum points from the game.

Sleaford Town could still end up in the relegation zone, but they boosted their survival chances with a 2-0 win over ON Chenecks at Eslaforde Park.

Archie Moyses gave the Green Army the lead from the penalty spot after half-an-hour and Simon Bolland lobbed the visiting keeper on forty to double the lead.

Peterborough Northern Star haven’t had too much success this season, but they will be pleased with their 2-0 victory at Kirby Muxloe.

Josh Rosser converted form Sam Wilson’s square pass on 37 minutes and Jake Sansby followed up after Rosser had seen his shot saved by Warren Butlin on 57 to complete the scoring.

Potton United are celebrating promotion from Division One after their 3-0 home win over Thrapston Town and Lutterworth Town’s 1-2 reverse at home to the already crowned champions Pinchbeck United.

The Royals took the lead on 16 minutes through Aaron Murrell, but they had to wait until 12 minutes from time for Danny Webb to pop up with the second and calm those nerves.

Gary Ansell-Carter netted the third on 90 minutes and they were presented with their well-earned trophies at the end of the game.

Lutterworth Town had led 1-0 at the break against Pinchbeck, but Ollie Maltby and manager Ian Dunn made themselves the toast of Potton with their second half goals.

Huntingdon Town have been on the other end of a lot of hammerings over the last couple of seasons, so let’s not begrudge them their 7-0 win over Melton Town at Jubilee Park.

Corey Kingston added two to his season’s tally, with Richard Baines doing likewise. Liam Rodden, Jon Hall and James Seymour were also on target.

Harrowby United are finishing the season strongly and they were 3-0 winners at home Burton Park Wanderers.

Sam Grouse added a couple, his first from the penalty-spot, after Jawanza Grant had opened the scoring for The Arrows.

Bourne Town continue to frustrate. Despite holding the interval lead through Jezz Goldson-Williams 23rd minute strike, visiting Rushden & Higham United bounced back to take the points.
The prolific Dylan Wilson made it one-apiece and Nat Gosnal-Tyler bagged a winner for the Lankies giving them an extremely quick double over The Wakes.

Blackstones saw off Buckingham Town 4-1 at Lincoln Road with Jones De Sousa celebrating a hat-trick (5, 46 & 75) with joint-boss Lee Clarke also on target on the hour-mark.

Bugbrooke St Michaels ran out 3-1 winners at Oakham United with the home side already doomed to finish second bottom.

Scott Sandy gave Long Buckby the lead at home to Olney Town, but the fifth-placed Nurserymen finished off their UCL life with a 2-1 win, thanks to a second-half comeback.

Olney are currently fifth, but three clubs can still overtake them should they win their remaining games.

Raunds Town can still take third spot after beating Irchester United 4-1 at Kiln Park.

Ty Clark getting two of their goals with Mason Thomas and Dave Townsend also on target.
