Premier Division

In what appears on paper to be the game of the day Scothern United came away from Ruston Sports with a win in a nine goal thriller, 5-4 being the score.

SFC Victory got the better of Welton Sports AFC 2-1 whilst the remaining two games between Lincoln Moorland Railway and Metheringham, and Hykeham Athletic and Travellers Rest were both postponed due to the withdrawal from the league last week of both home clubs.

Division One

New Swan FC defeated AFC Harpars 2-1 over in Horncastle, and AFC Plough scored seven without reply against Bassingham Bugle Horn.

FVA Jerusalem and The Gatehouse shared four goals with a 2-2 score line, whilst Saxilby Athletic and The Barrel went even better by sharing eight goals in a 4-4 thriller. Hospital S&S Club edged past Dynamo Varsity 3-2.

Division Two

This division produced some high scoring with Plough Sturton leading the way with a 9-0 victory away at Lincoln RNA.

Just behind them came AFC Lincoln Green with an 8-0 success out at Eagle against Railway Inn AFC.

Hykeham Memorial warmed up for their long trek south next weekend in the County Cup with a good looking 6-2 win away at Fox and Hounds, whilst Waddington United recorded a 3-1 home win over what were described as a useful looking Welton FC side.

Newton United Reserves won 2-0 at Crows Athletic. Old Boys United and St Helens gained one point apiece with a 2-2 draw.

Division Three

Wragby FC had their scoring boots with them at All Clear Window Cleaning, recording a 7-2 success. The Anchor won 3-1 at Nettleham, as did Sleaford Seahawks, winning 3-1 at Red Lion Dunston. Bardney entertained local rivals Woodhall Spa United but were on the receiving end of a 4-1 defeat. The game between Horncastle Town and Lincoln High Street was postponed.

Division Four

AFC West End hit five with a 5-1 win at home to The Shed. Shakespeare BBH hit the same number of goals away at Queen in the West, winning 5-1, and Broadley opened their season with a 4-0 home win against Saxilby Sports FC.

Turks Head edged past Birchwood United 3-2. Two newcomers to the league, in Greenbank and North Lindum Hawks, shared the points with neither side able to break the 0-0 deadlock. The final game in this division between Newtoft Terriers and Hykeham Tigers was postponed.
