Leadership of three of the five divisions changes hands.
Premier Division Supported by Sportsform
Renhold United's lead at the head of the Premier Division supported by Sportsform League table is now up to four points after they extended their unbeaten ways up to 10 games and recorded their sixth win on the bounce with a 3-0 home victory over Cranfield United. Alex Liburd netting all three goals. For second place Wilstead it was an end to their seasons unbeaten away ways when defeated 3-0 at Caldecote who duly retained their own 100% home record and took their unbeaten ways up to seven games to remain in fourth spot in the league standings. Ali Mckbul, Dan Fennell and Jack Boyd netting the vital goals.
Sitting in that third spot betwen Caldecote and Wilstead are Flitwick Town who had to settle for a share of the spoils from a 2-2 draw at Stevington. Richie Bevan and Nick Atkins the Town marksmen against home replies via Kieran Souter and Lawrence Bentham. Whilst the top scorers of the day were fifth place AFC Oakley M&DH who ran out 8-4 home winners over Wootton Blue Cross. Rob Heaney netting four times, Nathan Aulsberry three times and Matt Barnes once against Blue Cross braces in reply via Robert Odell and Jamie Rodd.
Now in sixth place are AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College who won 2-0 at Ampthill Town Reserves thanks to goals from Courtney Broughton and Mike Stephenson. Whilst climbing up into seventh place are Ickwell & Old Warden following their 3-2 home victory over Shefford Town & Campton. Steve Thomas, Ashley Boness and Steve Monks netting for the home side against Town replies via Liam Beaumont and Jake Renney.
Meantime there was a first away win of the season for Kempston Rovers Development who ran out 4-2 winners at Sharnbrook. Sam Smith with a brace joined on the scoresheet by Patrick Asare and Aaron Sabey against home replies from Hayden Jones and David Mulvihill. Whilst the battle of the bottom two clubs was to go the way of the home side with Marston Shelton Rovers running out 2-0 winners over Sandy thanks to a brace of goals from Wesley Burrows.
Division One supported by Wests Citroen Bedford
With Crawley Green Reserves sitting the afternoon out full advantage was taken by Meltis Albion to move onto the top of the Division One supported by Wests Citroen Bedford League table after they retained their seasons unbeaten home ways with a 3-2 victory over Cople & Bedford SA. Scott Alleyne netting twice and Craig Damon once against a SA brace in reply from Ashlee Banton. Whilst also jumping above The Green in the league standings are Queens Park Crescents who maintained their seasons 100% home record and unbeaten ways with a 2-1 win over AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College Reserves. Mohammed Abbass and Shahinur Rahmen on the Crescents scoresheet against a lone reply via Ashley Windridge.
Now in fourth spot are Westoning who made it three away wins on the bounce when winning 4-2 at The 61FC Luton Reserves. Thomas Cooksley with a brace joined on the scoresheet by Shaun Cooksley and Robbie Goodman against home replies via an own goal plus Timitayo Akerele to jump in the standings above M&DH Clapham Sports who required a goal in time added on from Ryan Prior to share the spoils in a 2-2 draw at bottom of the table Old Bradwell United. Xennon Paul also netting for the visitors against home replies from Charlie Wells and a Adam Mills penalty.
There was plenty of drama at Groveside where Elstow Abbey look set to end a run of eight games without a win by rushing into a 3-0 half-time lead against hosts Henlow via a brace from Billy Mills and a goal from Dean Leyden before the hosts staged a second period recovery with two goals from Paul Wright and a strike from Antony Bowskill to see the game finish all square at 3-3. Whilst just down the road for Shefford Town & Campton Reserves it was a 1-0 home win over Totternhoe Reserves thanks to a goal 10 minutes from time from Joe Lewis.
The new leaders of the Division Two league table are Riseley Sports who maintained their seasons 100% away ways with a 3-0 victory at the morning league leaders Wixams who were duly being beaten at home for the first time this season. Sam Harrison, Mitchell Crook and Jack Healy netting the goals to do the damage. Whilst there was also joy on the road for third place Cranfield United Reserves who with a goal from Ryan Collis won 1-0 at Houghton Athletic. Joining the happy band of away winners were fourth place Lea Sports PSG who won 2-1 at Caldecote Reserves to maintain their own seasons unbeaten ways. Joe Hennem and Dylan Cadger netting the goals against a lone home reply from Jake Bruce.
With Kempston Hammers Sports failing to raise a side to visit Flitwick Town Reserves the points will be duly awarded to their intended hosts who thus in the official records will be claiming their first home win of the season to keep them ahead in the league standings of Atletico Europa who returned to winning ways for the first time in five outings with a 5-2 home victory over Sundon Park Rovers. Mo Banda and Kudzal Madzulanylida both netting twice and Paddy Alimanji once to bring up the nap hand against Rovers replies via Mark Bonnar and Yahya Ettwari.
The Potton Town v AFC Oakley M&DH Reserves game falling victim to the first waterlogged pitch of the season.
We also have new league leaders at the head of the Division Three table in the shape of Wilstead Reserves who maintained their seasons unbeaten home ways with a 4-1 victory over Marston Shelton Rovers Reserves. Ricky Chamberlain, Robert Booth, Shaun Winconek and Ryan Davenport on their scoresheet against a lone Rovers reply from Kieran Day. Losing out on that top spot are Kempston Athletic, with their Cutler Hammer pitch deemed unplayable at Midday their scheduled game was switched to that of their opponents Wootton Village who then duly claimed their first win of the season when a lone goal from Lewis Aitken took them to a 1-0 victory and the necessary three points to lift them off of the bottom of the league standings.
That basement position now being occupied by AFC Dunton after they were defeated 2-3 at home by a White Eagles side winning their first away game of the season. Michael Michalski netting twice and Adam Chlapinski once for the Eagles against home replies via Paul Hutchinson and Michael Mcdonnell.
Meantime, the biggest winners of the day were Sandy Albion who returned to winning home ways with a 6-1 victory over Shefford Town & Campton A. Jack Wills with a brace joined on the scoresheet by Brad Dennis, Dave Smith and Thomas-Lee Smith plus goalkeeper Michael Dring who netted from the penalty spot against a lone Town reply via Tristan Potkins.
Elsewhere, Bedford Albion and Renhold United Reserves played out a 3-3 draw. Paul Babbington with a brace plus Ben Hutchins on the Albion scoresheet against United replies from Nathan France twice and Michael France once.
Now two points clear at the head of the Division Four league table are CS Rovers who maintained their seasons 100% away ways by winning 7-2 at Dinamo Flitwick. Connor Darocha netting four times, Mark Moriarty twice and Luke Roddy once against two home replies via Josh Pearson. With this defeat, the first at home this season the boys from Dinamo now drop down the league table into third spot and be replaced in that previously owned second slot by Henlow Reserves who are still unbeaten on the road this season and now unbeaten in their last eight starts after winning 4-0 at Sandy Reserves. Matthew Wilson with a brace joined on the scoresheet by Sam Crow and James Campbell.
For fourth place Clifton it was also a win on the road to maintain their seasons 100% away record when a lone goal from Jonny Cole took them to a 1-0 victory at Harlington. Whilst for fifth place AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College A it was a first away win of the season in triumphing 3-1 at bottom of the table Lidlington United Sports. Gavin Cheema, John Hislop and Mark Allen netting the Town goals against a lone United reply via Dale Crocker.
Completing the day's full house of five away wins from five games were Flitwick Town A who won 3-1 at Stevington Reserves. Sam Nightingale the lone home marksman.
