Meanwhile Droitwich Spa Eagles won 3-1 at Freemasons Arms with goals from Adam Ellis, Chris Lewis and a rare 25 yard screamer from veteran Matt Bishop. 

There were goals galore at Grosvenor Sports in division 4, where the home team found themselves3-0 down after only two minutes against Sebright Arms.
