The Gainsborough Sunday League’s Trinity Trophy reached the quarter-final stage, giving lower league sides the chance to take on the very best teams.

Walkeringham FC, currently top of Division Three, faced Division One pacesetters BRSA.

The 5-4 scoreline in BRSA’s favour reflected just how close it was to an upset.

The League’s current champions Mattersey, unbeaten in the League this season, beat Division Three Black Horse 5-0.

The all-Division One tie between a confident Rose & Crown team that has been in top form all season and inconsistent Kings Arms Haxey went to form, with Rose winning 5-1.

In an all-Division Two clash, Smiffys United produced their best form to beat Friendship F C 5-3.

There was just one game in the top division this week and a recently resurgent MUSC had few problems in defeating a gallant East Markham 8-0.

Misterton United were beaten 5-0 in Division Two by Leverton United.

Olde Sun and Bridon AFC had a real end to end game that the latter won 4-3.

In Division Three Leverton United Reserves made it a very good day for the club by just edging the closest of contests against title chasing Albertos, with a 1-0 victory.

Crooked Billet approached Sunday’s game against Ropery Rangers in confident mood and took a convincing 10-2 victory.

And finally Ping FC achieved their best result of the 2015/16 season in defeating Ropery Inn by 6-2 on a very windy Sunday Morning, where good football was not easy to produce.
