It was tough on Spalding who had finished third in the table, 16 points clear of Polonia who had suffered six points-worth of deductions during the season.

Oakham United Reserves and Glinton & Northborough were promoted automatically.

The Division Three play-off results are the subject of a Peterborough League investigation after it was discovered Bretton North End and Eye United had fielded ineligible players in a tie won 5-0 by Bretton.
