WILLEN’S 100 per cent start to the New City Heating Premier Division season came to an end on Sunday with a 2-1 defeat to closest rivals Wolvy Town, but they remain top of the table despite going down to a last minute own goal.

Wolvy’s dramatic success put them level on points with Willen, but after losing for the first time in six games, the leaders are still in the driving seat with two games in hand.

After a surprisingly poor start, Stony Stratford appear to have got their season back on track – particularly if their 10-1 thrashing of bottom side AFC Padbury is anything to go by. The other top flight game to be played saw third placed Olney Town beat Stoke Hammond 5-0.

With Division One leaders Coachmakers Arms having the weekend off, FC MMIX took their chance to cut the gap to four points with a 3-0 win over Stantonbury Social Elite, who remain bottom.

Third placed Punjab United were the biggest winners of the day, thumping Stanton Manor 10-1, while MK United beat Open University 2-0 and Buckingham United saw off New Bradwell 3-1.

Division Two leaders RJ Fitness made it six wins out of seven games with a 1-0 success against Stacey Bushes.

Southcott Village remain level on points with RJ Fitness after beating Swanfica 2-1, but they have played two games more than the table toppers.

Bottom side AFC Santander ‘B’ are still looking for their first win after a 4-1 defeat to IDW, while third in the table Inter Faith remain three points off the summit courtesy of a 2-1 victory against Bletchley Wanderers.
