Swineshead have all-but claimed the Taylors Garages Premier Division title following two victories in four days.

The Tutes defeated Ruskington Rovers 3-2 at home last Tuesday, following goals from Bert Snaith, Rob Masters and Richard Barker, and backed this up with a 3-0 win at Skegness Town Reserves on Saturday, thanks to Richard Barker (two) and Ryan Barker

They are level on points with second-placed Spilsby Town but their superior goal difference means it would take an enormous 29-goal defeat to Benington this weekend for them to lose the title.

Spilsby beat Mareham United 6-2 this weekend, with Gavin Gregory and Darren Tate netting consolations.

Fishtoft and Old Leake drew 2-2 with Curtis Revell’s brace putting the away side 2-0 up, only for Jamie Kuhn and Sam Wright to level.

Declan Sands hit a hat-trick as Kirton Town beat Woodhall Spa United.

Skegness Town Reserves beat Billinghay Athletic 5-1 in midweek.

Kirton Town beat Benington 3-1, Declan Sands, Reece West and an own goal bettering the reply from Rhys Cox.

In the Taylors Peugeot Division One, promoted Heckington Millers came from behind to draw 2-2 with opponents Coningsby.

Jamie Todd and Martin Maddison netted for Coningsby.

Coningsby hit six goals without reply in their midweek game against Sutterton, Tom Sewell (four), Sean Taylor and Andy Kelly on target.

A narrow 2-1 defeat at Friskney brought the curtain down on Fosdyke’s campaign, and it was the story of the season encapsulated in one game.

After a bright start, Victor Sibert pounced twice to hand Friskney a comfortable lead before Luke Smith reduced the arrears.

In the Taylors Ford Division Two, Carl Tate struck two goals for Sibsey in their 5-1 home win against FC Kirton, the other Sibsey goals coming from Kane Tate, Leon Creasey and Shane Brackenbury.

Billinghay Athletic Reserves beat AFC Tetford 4-3 while the game between Holbeach Bank and Spalding Harriers was abandoned after 36 minutes following a serious back injury sustained by goalkeeper Tony James.

It looks likely that the game will now be replayed on May 9.

Taylors Vauxhall Division Three champions Railway Athletic finished on a high note with a 5-1 home win against Park United.

Leading goalscorer Liam Nimmo hit two of the goals while Danny Woods, Dave Willis and Brandon Norman also got on the scoresheet.

Park replied through Leon Pycock.

Fishtoft Reserves have lifted the Willoughby Shield, beating Billinghay Athletic Reserves 2-0.

After a goalless first half, Fishtoft took the lead as Jack Hill’s shot was turned in by Sam Duff.

Two minutes later the Division Three runners-up doubled their advantage as substitute Davidas Urbsys, who injected some life down the left flank, fired home following a right wing corner.
