The HKL ONE title race is in the balance after second placed Clowne Wanderers beat leaders Butchers Arms 5-2 to move level with them on points on Sunday.

Butchers do have a couple of games in hand but even so a victory would have made their quest to win the title much easier. It was a tale of two substitutions in the game between Doe Lea and Mutton as Lee Clay and Joe Newton came off the bench to score and earn their side a 2-1 victory which keeps Doe Lea within touching distance of the top two. Hepthorne Lane visited Pilsley Community and returned home with all three points courtesy of a 6-2 victory.

Just the one game in HKL TWO and it was a pivotal one as Brampton Rovers visited Barnes Park to take on Grassmoor Sports requiring just one point to claim runners up spot in the division however at the half way stage two Charlie Daws goals plus a third from Stefan Wilson for Sports looked to have scuppered Rovers hopes or so it appeared. Cue comeback time as Danny Fields, Regan Jay and Rockie White scored second half goals for Rovers to secure the point that sees them finish as runners up to Champions Rangers.
