Bishops Itchington 2 Leamington Hibs 5
Last Seasons Champions were put to the sword by Hibs who take an early lead in the Table. A Johnny Adair strike on 35 minutes had kept Bishops in contention but Hibs had taken control by the time Ryan Leahy struck home a 90th minute penalty to grab a consolation second goal. Connor Carson grabbed a brace with the fastest goal of the day on 5 minutes. Dave Jones, Wendel Moyo and Jack Marsden with the other Hibs goals.

Dale Simmonds put the Veg boys back in front 5 minutes later and that’s how it stayed until the frantic last 10 minutes.

Khalsa Reserves 2 Ettington Rovers 2
A tight one here but Khalsa have a last minute strike from Gurdeep Dulay to thanks for their point.

His brother Aaron also grabbed a goal, and having provided three assists, Bert Ciuffini, playing against his former club, also got on the score-sheet.

Warwick Printing 3 Chadwick End Reserves 3
Samuel Wimbush , Sam Jones and Terry Bayliss with the Printers goals.
We finish with Division 4
Bishops Tachbrook Reserves 1 Warwickshire Police 2
Joe Schofield in the Tachbrook goal played a blinder here. Some great saves kept the young Tachbrook side in the hunt and they could easily have grabbed an equaliser towards the end. The Cops looked a threat going forward but Schofield with some help from the crossbar kept it tight. Dan Coxhead put the Cops ahead and Lee Owen made it 2 – 0 before half time. Tachbrook pulled one back early into the second half when a corner was cleared to the edge of the box and Cory Turner rifled home through the crowded area into the net. It was tense to the end but the Cops held on to take the points.
Foresters 1 Warwick Boar 3
Boar struck 3 in the first half and that was enough here. Jamie Hickey with the Foresters consolation. Marc Passey, Nicholas Lanau-Atkinson and Adam Edwards with the Boar goals.
HRI Wellesbourne Res 0 Sands United 0

Napton 2 Castle Rangers 1
