Ryan Pratt scored the Sports goal in a 1-1 draw with Jack Carter, player-boss Ricky Hailstone and Justice Glover on target for Whittlesey who had trailed at half-time.

Champions Netherton United bounced back after their midweek defeat at the hands of a fully-developed Sports Development team by scraping a 1-0 success at Long Sutton Athletic courtesy of an 80th-minute Zack Fisher goal.

Tom Lees struck twice as Stamford Lions came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Holbeach United Reserves and Peterborough Polinia claimed their first win as a Premier Division club thanks to a 90th-minute winner from Sebastian Bialoskorka against Langtoft United.
