Division One supported by Wests Citroen Bedford
We also have new leaders at the head of the Division One supported by Wests Citroen Bedford league table in the shape of Queens Park Crescents who maintained their seasons 100% home ways with a 2-0 win over Shefford Town & Campton Town Reserves thanks to a brace of goals from Daniel Rasol. The Crescents taking over that top spot on goal difference from Meltis Albion whose seasons unbeaten ways came to an end when defeated 4-3 at Totternhoe Reserves who now occupy third place in the league standings just goal difference behind the top two. It was the home side who were the quickest out of the blocks at Dunstable Road and with just five minutes showing on the clock thanks to a brace of goals from Jonny Clarke the scoreline read 2-0 in their favour. On 18 minutes the Albion via a penalty from Craig Damon reduced the arrears to 2-1 only to see Daniel Woosley restore the home sides two goal advantage just eight minutes from the break.
Clarke was then to claim his hat-trick in the 70th minute to make it 4-1 and seemingly game over until a second goal from Damon 11 minutes from time and a strike from Scott Alleyne eight minutes later leave the final scoreline to read 4-3.
Up into fourth spot and still unbeaten this season are Crawley Green Reserves who ran out the 5-2 winners at Westoning. Adam Marsh and Aaron Browne both netting twice alongside a single strike from Robert Newman to bring up the nap hand against home replies via Tom Cooksley and Rob Cooksley.

With league leaders Kempston Athletic not in action their lead at the head of the Division Three league table is now down to goal difference only after Wilstead Reserves won 5-2 at bottom of the table Wootton Village. Luke Pursey and Sam Ward both netting twice and Andrew Stapleton once to bring up the nap hand against Village replies via Lewis Aitken and Adam Flynn. Whilst for third place Marston Shelton Rovers Reserves it was a 3-2 home victory over Sandy Albion.
