The big game of the day in the Premier Division ended all-square as champions Swineshead were held at home to a 1-1 draw by rivals Spilsby Town.

Bert Snaith grabbed the all-important home goal.

Wyberton Reserves defeated Coningsby 3-0.

Leading 1-0 at the interval, Wyberton sealed victory with two late strikes.

Liam Shinn struck two of the goals while Shane Brackenbury was also on target.

Wyberton’s recent transfer capture from Swineshead, Scott Williams, had an impressive debut for his new club.

Kirton Town got their first points on the board with a hard fought 3-2 away win at Ruskington Rovers.

In Division One, an impressive 3-0 home victory by Fosdyke against FC Wrangle left the Tangerine camp smiling once again.

Fosdyke’s back line of James Hawkes, Ben Lawton, 
David Scott and new signing Ben Parker were magnificent.

Nathan Smith was on hand to open the scoring with the cheekiest of back-heeled finishes.

In the second half, Danny Beecham was at the heart of everything in the Fosdyke midfield.

Second half substitute Casey Sullivan got on the scoresheet before Leon Marsh wrapped up the points with a magnificent free-kick.

Swineshead Reserves held Friskney to a 3-3 draw with Giles Favel, Callum Karpyszyn and an own goal on the scoresheet.

Sutterton, still in the re-building stage, were soundly beaten 9-0 by Boston College in their opening game of the season.

In Division Two, a rampant Kirton Town Reserves outfit won 10-3 at Mareham United.

Spalding Harriers hit Friskney Reserves for six in their Division Three encounter and have now scored 24 goals in their opening three games.

Scott McPherson hit two of the Spalding goals while Jamie Robinson, Aidan Doherty, Morgan Taylor and Tom Atkinson were also on target.

Daniel Clay was again on target for Old Doningtonians Reserves when they defeated AFC Tetford Reserves at home 2-0.

Clay claimed both of his side’s goals.
