MOM: Callum Norfolk

Report: Rangers started very well, hassled Celtic and won a good penalty which Callum Norfolk duly dispatched. 1-0 and you thought Rangers were going to walk the game - how wrong could you be. Celtic upper their game, tackled hard to win the ball and dominated thereafter with some good passing.

Report: Both teams came out fighting for every ball with a lot of action in midfield. Parklands took the lead thanks to a lovely break by Becker and Spittle added a second, Becker got his second and Tigers third for a 3-0 half time lead. The second half was like a different game with Bugbrooke piling on the pressure with a succession of shots going just wide or over the bar. With 10 minutes to go, Tigers fell asleep and let Bugbrooke in with two well-taken goals. Esson worked really hard.

Referee: Marc Haslehurs


Beat Soccer Stars 3-2

Team: Howard Packman 10, Matthew Fowkes 10, Matthew Lee 10, Simb Thomas 10, Jake Brown 10, Joe Ball 10, Ben Nightingale 10, Will Aisthorpe 10, Alex McCabe 10

MOM: Howard Packman

Report: A very entertaining game played by two good sides. On a horrible day Welland adapted quickly playing some good football and scored through a terrific Joe strike and then a sub Thomas goal to make it 2-0. But then Stars put the pressure on and scored to make it 2-1. Howard, who was in fine form, saved a penalty before Thomas scored a wonderful goal beating three men to score in the corner. Although Stars scored again, Welland were worthy of their win.

Referee: Carl White

Team: Seb Meekey 7, Connor Shelswell 7, Jake Sturgess 7, Matthew Johnson 8, Connor Curly 8, Jack Sellick 8, Chris Bloxham 9, Ryan Ansell 8, Charlie Gee 7

Report: This team had other things on their mind and Cogenhoe took full advantage, eventually.

Other scorers were Rebould, Copping, Oddy, Mason and an own goal. Tows could have scored a lot more if it hadn't been for some excellent saves from Eagles keeper Adam Brookes.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Adam Brooks 8

Referee: Les Copping


Beat Sunnyside Warriors 7-0

Scorers: Ross Jackson 4, Liam Riley 3

Team: Michael McNulty, Danny Glaholm, Luke MacDonald, Liam Riley, Jonathan Joyce, Daniel Wilkin, Ross Jackson

Report: Celtic produced one of their best displays this season despite dreadful weather conditions. Kicking up the slope, Celtic pushed forward and went into half-time 2-0 ahead. In the second half Celtic continued to search for goals, Liam Riley scoring a well-deserved hat-trick and Ross Jackson was in great scoring form with a four-goal salvo. Bad luck to Sunnyside who put up a good fight, but Celtic's determination and from proved too strong on the day.


Lost 3-2 to Parklands Juniors

Scorer: Lewis Marriott 2

Team: Alex Churchill-Coleman 9, Fay Chown 8, Luke Wade 8, Luke Chown 8, Joey Winkimuller 9, Lewis Marriott 8, Liam Robinson 9, Adam Best 8

MOM: Alex Churchill-Coleman

Report: Despite creating a number of chances, Bugbrooke went in at half-time 3-0 down and but for some fine saves from Alex it could have been more. Bugbrooke came out fighting in the second half, creating further chances. They eventually took their chances and two goals from Marriott put them back into the match. Three clear chances were missed by Bugbrooke to level the scores and Juniors held on to win. A thoroughly enjoyable match, enjoyed by all the spectators despite the pouring rain.

Drew 0-0 with West Haddon

Team; Connor Rice, Cain Cox, Jack Bazeley, Courtney Bain, Jordan Linnell, Mark Bazeley, Harry Earby, David Walker

MOM: Connor Doyle

Report: Both teams played well and battled out a 0-0 draw in terrible weather. Jets' defence had listened to instructions and cleared the ball well but their keeper still had some good saves to make and kept a well-earned clean sheet. The last few minutes saw West Haddon in control and it looked as if they might score from a corner but MOM Doyle cleared yet again just as the full-time whistle went.


Lost 4-0 to Roade Rangers

Team: Daniel London, Edward Dolman, Oliver Marriott, Troy Sams, Casey Wiles, Daniel Massey, Lewis Kirkland

MOM: Troy Samms

Report: A depleted Heyford side tried valiantly against a good team from Roade. Great passing and link play from Oliver and Lewis were nearly rewarded with goals. Casey and Daniel did great work in midfield. MOM Troy, helped by Daniel, closed out Roade several times. Edward again was inspirational in goal.

Referee: Rick Wiles


Lost 5-0 to Rugby United

Team: Evan Battison, Kieran O'Sullivan, Matt Mansfield, Ben Cauldecourt, Brad Matcham, Zak Alphonoso, Tom Pedel, Jacob Stephenson, Josh Butler

Team: Matthew Harrison, Matthew Prenderville, Kane Wright, Jordan Riley, Nathan May, Ellis Morgan, Luke Morris, Philip Day

Report: A hat-trick for Riley, two for Morris and one for Prenderville helped Duston to an overdue win. The match was played in torrential rain but credit to both teams for the spirit the match was played in. Wright did well in goal as a late replacement and Morgan also put in a sound performance in defence.

Referee: John May


Lost 6-1 to Rugby Town Eagles

Scorer: Ryan West

Team: Thomas Barnes, Samuel Duxbury, Dominic Francais, Matthew Herbert, Sean Mccormick, Adam Smith, Ryan West

Report: Billing battled hard in the first 15 minutes with good performances by McCormick in midfield and Herbert in defence which kept Rugby at bay.

Team: Sam Hughes 8, Alex Otley 9, Thomas Hicks 9, Rhys Davies 9, Andy Jackson 10, Jack Bowen 9, Elliott Ruff 9, Matt Hodgkinson 10, Jack Chandler Thomas 9

MOM: Andy Jackson

Report: Wootton started well and passed the ball throughout an entertaining game. Excellent goals from Hodgkinson and Ruff gave Wootton a 2-1 lead.

Report: Dynamo attacked from the start which resulted in goals from Harry, Kieran and a first club goal for Matt. Conor hit the bar, the post and it went to 3-0 at half time. The second half saw excellent football with three more goals from Jake, Ali and Reece, with Kyle at the back and Lewis in goal creating a first clean sheet for Dynamo. A good all round squad performance.

Referee: Ian Tarry


Beat Duston Knights 10-3

Report: Miserable and wet sums up the match and the weather. At half time Duston could be forgiven for thinking that they might have won but in the second half their game never really got going and when Welland finally got their act together the goals started flowing. Opening the score sheet for Welland was Tom who scored a total of five with Jordan, Raife, Jason, Li and Dan sharing the remainder between them. Welland should have scored many more but, as ever, were caught off side. A fair result with the weather making it a slog of a match.


Lost 3-1 to Wootton Field Wanderers

Scorer: Adam Spalding

Team: Lee Mellotti, Alex Rees, Alex Pitts, Martin Grainger, Matthew Sowerby, gavin Cope, Adam Spalding

Report: Wootton had the best of this exciting game with both sides displaying plenty of skilful attacking moves. Long periods of Wanderers pressure only resulted in three goals thanks to some excellent saves from Panthers keeper, Lee Mellotti, including an impressive penalty save late in the game. The highlight for the Panthers was a superb headed goal from Adam following Gavin's perfectly weighted cross.

MOM: Lee Mellotti

Referee: Hughes

MOM: Shannon Campin

Report: A poor first half performance from Duston was punished by a good Stars team who were 6-0 up by half time. Duston picked themselves up in the second half and showed what they can do by winning the second half 1-0 with a Russell goal. Stop letting yourself down lads.

MOM: Louis Lynes

Report: Welland got back to winning ways coming out on top in an exciting end-to-end match against Braunston. Foote chipped the keeper with an early goal and Welland should have increased their tally as chances went begging before the visitors equalised with the last kick on the half. Harvey-Bale put them back in front only for Braunston to pull back again. The home side went in front again with an own goal before Foote made the game safe with his second.

Referee: J Desmond

MOM: Harrison

Report: Wootton got off to a good start with a goal in the first five minutes but then Heyford conceded a second through an own goal. Heyford constantly tackled for every ball and never gave up. Wootton were too strong on the day and secured goals at regular intervals. All of the Heyford players competed well and deserved a special mention. They did their best.


Beat Heyford Athletic 7-0

Scorers: Chris Bulmer, Sam Heavyey 3, Jess Roberts 2

MOM: Liam Tuck

Report: On a very muddy pitch both teams tried to play football. Wootton took the lead early in the first half through Jess and further strikes from Chris, Jess and an own goal made it 4-0 by half time. The second half saw the impressive Sam score a hat-trick to make the final score 7-0. Special mention to Liam who had a great game in midfield.

Beat Gregory Celtic 2-1

Scorer: Elliott Hornby 2

Team: Bronson Walsh, Oliver Tilley, Ashley Talbot, AJ Bradbury, Guvan Kooner, Jack Hartley, Sam Walpole, Ryan Howard, Joe McGill, Elliott Hornby, Kieran Cornwell

Report: Hornby had an excellent game and scored both Isham goals. McGill, Howard and Walpole were unlucky with a few chances they may scored with Gregory's keeper making some fine saves. It was a hard game in difficult conditions although Isham did play some very good passing football. Talbot and Hornby put some crosses over from which we were unlucky not to score from.

Referee: Chris Reilly

MOM: Luke Jengin

Report: Bugbrooke started very brightly and put Spinney on the defensive from the start. Some good football was played by all of the lads and quickly got the goal they deserved. Two further goals came and more chances missed. The second half was a different story as Spinney got a lot better with a goal coming for them. Bugbrooke wrapped up the game with a fourth goal at the end.

Opponents Goalkeeper: L Cole

Lost 4-0 to Sunnyside Warriors Black

Team: Ellis Walsh, Joe Minney, Ross Bradley, Jacob Thomas, Jack Pound, Shane Lynch, Connor Emery, Curtis Wright, Joe Burton, Jack Grant, Alex Tait, Danny Reboul, Liam Dooley

MOM: Curtis Wright

Report: Eagles got off to a strong start with good flowing football and good link up play between Grant and Tait only for Warriors to nip in on the brink of half-time for the opener. Barely into the second half Eagles loats their keeper and had to reorganise but Warriors took advantage and despite defensive efforts Eagles could not stand the pressure.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Danny Reynolds 7

MOM: Karl Shingler

Report: Drayton took control of the game from the start. Two goals from Karl gave a half time lead.

MOM: Jack O'Berine, Jason Lewis

Report: Warriors started brightly with chances falling to Turner, Gardiner, Lewis and Harvey but were somehow denied. Eagles pressed forward also going close before Tear put Warriors ahead with a delightful shot. Warriors tightened up the back and scored three goals with Turner, Pritchard and Geraghty all getting on the score sheet. A good game with good individual performances.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Ellis Walsh 7

Team: George McClellan, Adam Sharpe, Jacob Welsh, Shane Singlehurst, Stephen Roberts, Robert Brookes, Sam Freeland, Ryan Moran, Matthew Nicholls, Adam Fitzhugh, Nathan Smith, Joseph Riordan, Kyle Osborne, Danny Allan

MOM: Jacon Welsh

Report: Congratulations must go to Rangers who deservedly won this hard-fought game. In a tight first half Rangers had some good chances to score but went in at half-time 0-0. In the second half, with the pitch getting more cut up and heavier, both teams battled hard to get a goal. Rangers finally opened the scoring with a well-taken goal from Adam. Ravens then threw everything forward but Rangers wrapped the game up with a long shot to make the final score 2-0.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Michael Kraczkosky 7

MOM: Luke Brundle

Report: After three quick goals for Bugbrooke in the first half Spinney started to settle down and defended well. The second half saw Spinney attacking more and Reuban Fullthorpe scored a fine goal. It was a spirited performance from Spinney and a good all-round team effort, and a very entertaining game of football. Keep it going lads.

Scorers: Stuart Reid 2, Aaron Linnell, Feraj Minemo

Team: Liam McEwan, Jack Hogg, Alex Holmes, Lloyd Adams, Jacob Holt, Reece Shields, Aaron Linnell, Stuart Reid, Faraj Minemo, Niall Duffy, Marcus Abell

Report: Soccer Stars made hard work of this game with a combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing leaving the score at 0-0 until 15 minutes in when Stuart opened the scoring. Blisworth equalised with a fantastic effort dipping under Liam's bar. Stars started the second half strongly and an almost inch-perfect cross led to an unfortunate own goal by Blisworth. Linnell and Reid made it 4-1 and debutant Faraj knocked home from close range to make it five. Well done to Blisworth and Stars.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Nik Billingham 9

Team: Liam McEwan, Jack Hogg, Aaron Linnell, Alex Holmes, Lloyd Adams, Jacob Holt, Reece Shields, Stuart Reid, Niall Duffy, Ellis Stockport, Marcus Abell, Jacob Dawes, Josh Holgate

Report: A near full-strength Soccer Stars team has this game wrapped up by half-time. Goals from Linnell, Reid and Shields saw them race to a 3-0 lead and by 20 minutes further goals from Duffy and second goals for both shields and Linnell saw Stars into a commanding 6-0 lead. Changes were made at 25 minutes and Stars struggled to maintain their flow. Duston scored a well-deserved consolation and but for some good goalkeeping by Liam could have had two. Well done to both teams for a competitive but fair game.

MOM: Jack Percival

Report: In a closely-fought first half chances were few and far between. Warriors took the lead midway through the first half only for Jack Percival to score with a superb 20-yard chip to equalise within a minute. The second half was totally dominated by Cogenhoe and with time running out James Rutter managed to score the winner. A great game and credit to both teams. Well done boys.

Team: Ben Nicholson, Matt Ford, Ollie Stenson, Matt Jackson, Declan Brandley, Ben Howard, Danny Sizer, Ashley Bewick, Matt Rate, Callum Beech, Michael Castle, Joe Middleton, Zack Osowski

MOM: Matt Ford

Report: A powerful performance from Wootton, pushing Duston back from the first whistle. Quality attacking play from Matt Ford, Ben Howard, Ollie Stenson, and Mike Castle provided chances for Sizer and Beech to score a brace apiece by half-time. The second half carried on in the same way with goals at regular intervals from Beech, Sizer, Stenson (2) and Osnowski. But for some excellent saves by Herbert and the intervention of post and bar more goals could have been scored. Well

done to Duston who contributed lots of effort until the end of the game.

MOM: Ben Burbidge

Report: Bugbrooke played brilliantly from the start, they contained Ise very well and were unlucky not to take the lead when Wheeler lobbed the keeper to see his effort go wide. Hodges had a header fly over the bar and then there were several half chances before Ise took the lead. But Bugbrooke's determined play was rewarded with a scorching left foot drive from Chown that

gave the home keeper no chance.

The second half was end-to-end

stuff and with two minutes left

Ise slipped in to take two quick goals. The result was not a fair reflection of Bugbrooke's form.

MOM: Clarke Parkinson

Report: On a very heavy pitch Milton played some good passing football. Mitchell netted twice before Judge scored his first. Parkinson then slotted in calmly from a great move for the fourth. Duston pulled one back before Mitchell also completed his hat-trick. Parkinson worked hard and was well-supported be the backs and midfield. Smith had another sound game in goal.

Team: Jonathan Curtis, Sean Conopo, Adam Beasley, Jordan Gass, Aaron Jones, Matthew Curtis, Tobias Boyes Jackson, Thomas Hill, Sam brown, Edward Choper, Oliver Lloyd Wright, Thomas Payne, Daniel Abbott

Report: With the downhill advantage Braunston made several attacks on goal with Tom making a strong impression in centre midfield, but were unable to make them count. Duston closed down Braunston well in the second half and it continued to be a tighter affair. However, the break through came with some swift forward play and Joseph made it count.

Report: Blisworth drew first blood following a strong run from Day. Braunston then took advantage of defensive hesitancy to score two goals. Blisworth in turn seized the initiative by scoring twice themselves to go in 3-2 at the break. Blisworth really found their rhythm in the second half scoring four more to Braunston's one. A good display of football from both sides on an appalling day. Jon Simmarco was MOM for a classy performance on the right side of midfield.

MOM: Josh Croxford

Report: A close first 15 minutes saw Jets go 1-0 up but Wootton soon hit back with a Hughes header from a corner. With the score level at the interval, Wootton dominated the second half with goals from Hicks, Walsh and two more from hotshot Hughes. The whole team worked so hard in this game and got what they deserved in a fine victory. Special mention to MOM Croxford who seemed to win every ball in midfield and never stopped working.

MOM: The whole team

Report: A nail-biting cup game which started in good spirit. Warriors took the lead with a good goal from Turner followed by a second from Wheatley and a belter from Styles giving Reds a comfortable first half lead. Parklands didn't give up and they came out determined in the second half and with two fantastic goals and a near miss they were right back in it. After having a Sunnyside player deservedly sent off our ten lads held on for the win. Well done lads.

MOM: Matteus Bates

Report: Soccer Stars eased into the next round of the county cup with a comfortable victory over Spencer. It took Stars 20 minutes to breach the dogged Spencer defence with a deflected shot, Hoban's second goal doubling the lead after the break. The second half saw Stars add six more goals for the third time this season along with single strikes by Jessup, Grisley and 'Henry' Hicks. Matt Bates put in a dominant performance against his former team-mates.

MOM: James Frisby

Report: A slow start by Duston today, conceding four goals in the first quarter. Duston picked themselves up and some good football ensued by Frisby, Barnes and Cootes in the centre of the pitch. During the second half, Duston played too defensively and although Harmon, Anscombe, Ward and Fitzmaurice showed good defensive tactics Milton delivered three more goals. A determined Frisby shot home a deserved consolation goal after being set up by Barnes but by then the game was over. Duston you deserve more than this.

Referee: Richard Moss

MOM: Matthew Duxbury

Report: A much improved team performance in a flowing, well-refereed game. Despite constant first-half pressure we were limited to only one goal, well taken by Joe. Jack made the game safe with a goal straight from a corner. Both teams made a solid contribution to an entertaining game.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Adam Christie 9

Lost 5-1 to Wootton Fields Wdrs

Scorer: Max Armstrong

Team: Jay McConnell, Steven Dods, Grant Richardson, Craig Aitken,

Jay Aitken, Daniel Baker, Callum Whitney, Jordan Henson, Luke Meakins, Max Armstrong, Nicholas Robinson

Report: Jets started brightly and took a well-deserved lead through Armstrong and but for some good work from the Wootton keeper might well have extended their lead. Then Jets seemed to lose their way as Wootton took control and although flattered by the scoreline they deserved their win.

MOM: Luke Anzelmo

Report: This was a better performance by Warriors who took the lead through Calvin with a well-taken goal and then sat back against a very strong Duston who led 3-1 at the break. The second half saw both sides score again, Warriors keeper made some good stops in goal in wet conditions. Duston ran out deserved winners. The game was played in great spirit. A much-improved performance lads.

MOM: Tom Wenman

Report: Jets can be pleased with this performance managing to play good football in poor conditions. The Roade keeper made some excellent stops before Pat opened the scoring and despite good possession, it was Martin who sealed the win late in the game. Well done both sides.

Report: A gutsy contest on a grim day. Gookey kept Parklands in the game in the first 15 with awesome blocks and saves. Parklands late starters settled and made this a very tight game, with both sides giving no quarter. Excellent team work and commitment kept Parklands pushing up. A great three-touch move from Hiskey to Herman, then Beale opened up the scoring. Lionverge pushed relentlessly and equalised from a corner. With three minutes left both teams kept pushing and a powerful free kick took the game to 2-1 with the last kick of the game.

MOM: Matthew Holtz, Robert Wake

Report: An excellent start for Scorpions with Arron scoring two minutes into the game. Unfortunately old habit die hard and we gave away too many soft goals. Matthew, Robert and Dean worked hard at the back. Good comebacks for the two Daniels and a good debut for Pav.

MOM: Scott Schmid, Ashley Bryan

Report: A very tight game with Roade making all of the running from the start but not taking their chances. Jets went a goal up in the first half against the run of play. Roade started the second half with an outstanding display from Ashley in midfield but failed to capitalise and Jets went two goals. A fine display of goalkeeping kept Roade in the game.

MOM: Tosh Ayres

Report: A fast pace was set by both sides from the start, the deadlock broken by Cogenhoe at 15 minutes after a poor clearance. Parklands kept pushing back and were caught by a quick and well-executed break. Tosh Ayres pulled off another penalty save with the second half seeing the same hard work continue by both Cogenhoe creating opportunities and taking their chances well

and scoring two more well-finished goals.

Jamie Smothers opened the scoring, chipping the keeper from 20 yards and Olly Swords made it 2-0 soon after with a low drive. The injury-hit Hoops continued to dominate in the second half and Swords grabbed his second with a fierce drive.

Team: John Barrett, Andrew Rose, Jake Nagy, Max Collins, Nick Pawley, Tom Horsley, Matt James, Tom Gernon, Chris Hollist, Damon Herbert, Alex Quatrine, Franco Reina, Danny Mortimer

Report: Whitefield were made to work hard for the points against a very hard-working Cogenhoe side. A very even first half saw only one goal scored after a goalmouth scramble with Norpol's Damon Herbert muscling the ball home. The second half saw Whitefield play a lot better and were soon 3-0 up with two goals from Tom Horsley. Cogenhoe scored late in the game to put a little doubt in Norpol minds but Chris Hollist sealed the win with a great strike from the left in the last few minutes.

MOM: The whole team

Report: Good football and team spirit saw Grange overcome Tows. Plenty of action at both ends led to a first-half hat-trick by Sanderson, a second-half hat-trick by Sanderson and a penalty saved by Fleming, plus two goal-line clearances by Gautrey resulted in a win for Grange over a strong Towcester side.

MOM: Sam Holmes

Report: A combination of bad finishing, excellent defending and some outstanding goalkeeping by James Gookey, who produced the best save that I have ever seen (including the professional game) meant that despite the numerous chances that Lionverge created, they finished the game pointless. Lionverge laid siege to the Parklands goal but Gookey produced the performance of his life to keep them out. Parklands scored a breakaway goal only for Alex Higgs to score what seemed to be the equaliser, only for Parklands to nick the points with a goal with the last kick of the match. Well played to both teams in appaling conditions, but a special mention to James Gookey who deserved a higher mark than 10. He was brilliant.

Opponents Goalkeeper: James Gookey 10

Report: Hardworking Bugbrooke pulled a goal back after going two down in the first half. But the Bird's Close outfit were left reeling after a further 11 goals were scored in the second half by Blisworth who ran out 13-1 victors.

Team: Amin Al-Robb, Aaron Threadgold, Sam Robinson, Daniel Kamianos, James Sedgewick, Sam Leighton, Lewis Godbolt, Josh Slinn, Ben lucas, Liam Gilligan, Daniel Kavanagh, Cory Roberts, Joe Nicholson, Ryan Maskell

Report: Warriors opened the scoring with their first attack of the game, only for Dan Komianos to score for Knights with a goal Jonny Wilkinson would have been proud of. Sam Leighton added two more before half-time to put Knights in control In the second half Sam Leighton completed his hat-trick and Ryan Maskell scored the fifth. Warriors were rewarded with a penalty against the run of play and Knights' keeper Amin Al-Robb got a hand to the ball but it just rolled over the line. Knights created many chances and on another day might have doubled their score. Well done to both teams for a good game in poor conditions.

Team: Gavin Harding, Kieran Butcher, Richard Prendiville, Josh Carasco, Josh Melling, Sean McBride, Oliver Swords, Charlie Regan, Stuart Dilley, Jamie Smeathers, Joe Morris, Chris Gilligan, Jake Hogben, Beau Bennett, Matt Silecchia, Josh Shaw

MOM: The whole team

Report: A shaky start by Celtic saw Jets take a deserved lead. The Hoops couldn't find their usual passing style until a penalty, converted by Oliver Swords, settled them down. The second half was a different story as Celtic created chance after chance only to be thwarted by Jets' dogged defending. With 10 minutes to go, a break on Celtic's right saw the cross met by Beau Bennett who headed home to secure the points.

Scorer: Jamie Kennedy

Team: Elliott Matty, Tom Merriman, Oliver Franklin, Sam Shortland, Andrew Jaeckel, Matthew Hiron, Daniel Baxter, Aaron Crampton, Nick Webb, Jacob Szikora, Jamie Kennedy, Daniel Lynch

MOM: Andrew Jaeckel

Report: A depleted Colts team took on the Diamonds who were more motivated than them. With three players out Colts couldn't string anything together. A dull 0-0 at half-time with Colts taking the lead after the restart, Kennedy finishing after Szikora's drive was parried. Kennedy nearly added a second but for a magnificent save from Ranft. Diamonds equalised after poor defensive play again but deserved the point and possibly more.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Clarke

Report: Within five minutes Cogenhoe had to replace their goalkeeper who was injured as Ravens scored the first goal. Ravens then scored their second, Cogenhoe having some chances before the Seb Steel scored an excellent goal from outside the 18-yard box. In the second half, Corby kept the pressure up and scored another two goals.

MOM: The whole team

Report: Another excellent display by a 10-man Roade through sickness. Roade were all over Towcester but some good goalkeeping by the Towcester keeper prevented Roade from scoring. Towcester led 1-0 at half-time, but Roade equalised early on in the second half. One lucky break and Towcester clinched it with 10 minutes to go.

MOM: Tom Stenson

Report: In bad weather conditions it took Hart time to settle, but once they had the football played was the best this season. Stenson got three and was man of the match, Lyons got a brace and Brown and Marocco one apiece. It could have been more but for Grammarians' keeper who was outstanding.

MOM: James Anderson

Report: A game that started well for Ravens, taking the lead through L McCauley but Warriors then drew level before half-time. Ravens then came back out and scored two quick goals through D Falconer (2). Ravens then carried on in Warriors' half and saw off the game with three more goals, D Falconer completing his hat-trick and a great first for the club from James Anderson from 35 yards, joining D Clark on the scoresheet. Well done to both teams playing a good game in very difficult conditions.

Report: A well played match and despite many attempts on goal Buckby could not score due to excellent defending and saves by the goalie. Buckby had possession of the match but failed to deliver the goods. Cogenhoe seemed adamant to score and with sheer perseverance succeeded in getting a deserved draw.

Report: What a good game played in a great spirit with both teams working hard. Ravens took the lead through M Kelly but just before half-time Chenecks pulled level through a fine team goal. In the second half it was end-to-end with Ravens taking the lead again through D Clark. Chenecks then equalised again and both teams had chances but unfortunately Ravens scored an own goal and were unlucky not to get anything from the game.

MOM: Thomas Benn

Report: Although struggling for a team, the players who turned up gave 100 per cent, kept their shape and battled against a talented Celtic team. Celtic deserved their win and came close on a number of occasions, but Kingsley gave a very spirited performance and can be very proud of their achievements. Well done to all the players.

Beat Moulton Magpies 6-0

Scorers: Lewis Evelyn 3, Jamie Matsell 3

Team: Lee Winter, Emlyn Stevens, Tommy Regan, Alex Willet, Matt Symondson, Paul Hartley, Nas Sargeant, Ed Bannister, Jamie Pankewycz, Lewis Evelyn, Jamie Matsell, Ben Chambers, Steven Smith

MOM: Lewis Evelyn, Jamie Matsell

Report: Celtic had the stars of this show in Jamie and Lewis who were brilliant and both deserved their hat-tricks. Compared to two weeks' ago in the cup, Moulton made life difficult for Celtic but gradually the Hoops got on top defensively. Celtic were sound and the midfield promptings of Nas and Paul made the openings for Lewis and Jamie. Well played boys and a gutsy performance from Moulton.

Opponents Goalkeeper: Britten 8
