BUTTERCROSS picked up another three points in their bid to become Division Three champions, a 7-4 victory over second-placed Kingfisher meaning that Paul Kidley’s side are three points clear of the chasing pack headed by the Fishermen and Bromham FC.

Buttercross led 1-0 courtesy of a Josh Legg goal, only for them to trail 2-1 as Will Stone and Mike Murden netted for the hosts.

Kieran Tarrant restored parity for the Butter Boys who then trailed 3-2 to a Kieran Blake goal.

Josh Beard’s first penalty of the game levelled things at 3-3 before a second Will Stone goal gave the Fishermen a 4-3 interval lead.

After the break Buttercross took charge of things and equaliser through a second Beard penalty. Legg gave them a 5-4 lead and Jordan Tarrant added a sixth prior to Beard scoring from 12 yards for a third time to complete a rare hat-trick of penalties for the hosts.

Biddestone’s search for a first win of the season goes on after their latest outing ended in an 8-2 loss at home to an ever-improving Old Road side.

James Eatough scored the first two with Ryan Pagett replying for Biddestone to make it 2-1.

Matthew Poole scored with an assist straight from keeper Will Green and Eatough then scored a sublime volley to bring up his hat-trick before adding another to make it 5-1 at the break.

Travis King scored a second for Biddestone early in the second half, but it proved to be a consolation as Nathan Walker scored directly from a free kick and two more goals followed from Zack Sallows and Eatough again.

After suffering a first loss of the season last weekend, Bromham made an immediate return to winning ways with an 8-0 victory at home to The Mallard FC.

An own goal, Joe Tinnion and Kyle Smith, Ryan Bole’s double, Charles Street’s brace and Ryan Collins goal made up the tally.

White Hart FC were seconds away from claiming a deserved draw at home to Sporting Box, only for a last-gasp penalty earned Box a 3-2 win.

Dan Gregory (White Hart) and James Weymouth (Sporting Box) traded first-half goals. Adam Greeves put Box 2-1 up before Joe Chaffey’s stunning effort bought the teams level at 2-2.

With seconds remaining, Junior Boakye scored from the spot to earn his team all three points.
