Division Four

Broadley FC remain in second place in the table courtesy of an excellent 3-2 win at Hykeham Athletic and AFC Golden Eagle remain third after their fine 8-1 win at Saxilby Sports FC. Railway Inn United maintained their 100& league form for the 6th successive game by winning 5-1 at The Shed FC and FVA Jerusalem Reserves enjoyed their 4-0 win at home to AFC West End. Nosey FC were the latest team to attempt to improve their goal difference when playing against bottom of the table The Blue Lion FC but their 5-0 win represented the best result of the season so far for The Blue Lion so perhaps both teams will see today’s game as a success.
