Reigning champions Harrox stuttered last weekend before scrambling to a 2-1 home win over Deeping Rangers Reserves.

Marcus Parry and Joe Townsend scored after Paul Kirk had fired Deeping in front.

Holbeach United Reserves avenged the President’s Shield defeat a week earlier by pipping Wisbech Town Reserves 2-1 at Carter’s Park.

Steven Barnes and Tom Gosling were the men on target for the Tigers.

Pinchbeck United’s steady start to the season continued with a 3-1 win at ICA Sports. Ollie Maltby (2) and Liam Ogden were on target but Ben Harris was dismissed.

Crowland Town don’t win back-to-back league games very often but they followed a 5-2 victory over Sawtry with a 2-1 success at Langtoft United.

Scott Spearink struck for the Vikings but the points were earned by Pawel Podlinski and Simkus Virginijus.

Meanwhile, Stamford Lions have admitted a charge of fielding a player under a false name in a recent defeat at home to Harrox.

They will be punished at a disciplinary hearing.

Moulton Harrox Reserves reached the top of Division One with an 8-1 win at Baston.

Declan Earth scored a hat-trick, John Ball and Daniel Lambe-Hyner hit doubles and substitute Lee Hudson also found the net.

Parkway Eagles stayed top of Division Two despite dropping points for the first time this season in a 3-3 home draw with Spalding Town who had Tomas Ragelis (2) and Matthew Cannon on target.
