In the Premier Division, Sandhills overcome SR Dons 3-1 in a tight affair. Mallaburn started the scoring for the Sandhills, but Dons got back level with a glorious goal from David Mould.

Stalwart Paul Taylor rounded off a great display by notching seven goals. But man of the match went to David “Busta” Paul, who hit five goals himself and set up five of Taylor’s haul.
