Weekly Round-up for Sunday 4 October 2020. We start with Division 1(a).

Ettington Rovers 2 Khalsa 1
A tight game here and Tom Gardener and Kyle Nicholls strikes were just enough for Ettington to take the points although an 85th minute strike from Manjinder Chhokran made for a nervous last 5 minutes.
Minute's silence for Mick Brady
