First win of season for newboys Ingleby


None of the early-season top-three in Division One of the Gainsborough and District Sunday League played, allowing others to close the gap.

Newboys Ingleby Arms gained their first success — a hard-fought 2-1 win at Walkeringham.

Ingleby just shaded a game that both will feel they could have won.

AFC Ordsall started life in Division One with a 4-11 victory at Kings Arms Haxey.

Ordsall were concerned about their ability to compete in the top division, but the win showed they are more than capable of making an impact.

Albertos, last season’s Division Two Champions, looked to have strengthened and won on the opening day.

They lost for the second time on Sunday, however, going down 3-2 to near neighbours Olde Sun.

In Division Two, Peacock and Westwoodside both continued their winning starts to make it two victories from two matches.

Peacock defeated Bridon AFC 5-3 in a very attacking game.

Both teams should take heart from their performances and be confident for the rest of the season.

Promoted Westwoodside had too much pace for Trinity Supporters Club O35s to win 6-0.

Cross Keys Wroot, another new team, who had started with a win and a draw, lost 9-0 at home to Leverton United.

In Division Three, early-season pacesetters Horse And Jockey had a third straight victory, winning 4-1 at fellow Gainsborough team Black Bull.

Kings Arms Haxey Reserves are also undefeated following a 4-2 win against a very good Ship Inn Morton.

Both Horse And Jockey and Kings Arms are on nine points from their opening three games.

Bridon AFC Reserves edged a six-goal game against Stanwood Engineering 4-2 to record their second win of their first season in the league.

Owston Ferry Sports Club poured more misery on luckless Xtras United, winning 12-0.

Xtras United again showed great sportsmanship and effort in defeat.

It was Owston Ferry Sports Club’s first win of the season and they were never seriously threatened in the 90 minutes.
