Horncastle Town U15s overcame driving wind and rain to beat league rivals Hykeham Tigers Bees last Sunday.

It proved to be a closely fought game but Town took the points after a 2-1 win to step up their challenge for a top four place in the Division C table.

Town U16s went down 3-2 at home to Saxilby in a five goal thriller.

It was a disappointing result for Town as a win could have taken them to the top of the Division C table ahead of main title rivals Heckington.

Town U14s were knocked off the top of the table after a 4-2 defeat against a strong Rustons Sports side.

The U13s also missed out, losing 3-2 at North Lindum Hawks while the U12s remain at the foot of the table after a 3-0 set back at home to Sleaford Town Colts.
