Loughton Manor warmed up for their big Premier Division Trophy final on Monday with a routine 2-0 victory against Stewkley on Saturday.

Manor take on City Colts in the cup final at Buckingham Athletic next week, but their chances of making it a double look unlikely as Potterspury maintained their two-point lead at the top of the Premier Division with a dramatic 5-3 victory over Great Horwood, and they still have two games in hand.

City Colts will also go into the cup final in good form as they beat Yardley Gobion 3-1, while MK Titans were beaten 5-1 by Silverstone.

Division Two side Comet MK reached the semi-finals of the Interdivisional Trophy courtesy of a 3-0 win against Thornborough Atheltic, but Great Linford went down 4-3 to Grendon Rangers.

Denbigh Hall Sports have progressed to the final of the Intermediate Division Trophy thanks to a 2-0 win over City Colts Res.

They face AFC Santander in the final, who recorded a 3-1 victory over Grendon Rangers Res in their last league outing on Saturday.

Meanwhile Bow Brickhill’s title hopes came to an end with a shock 6-1 defeat to Syresham, Wolverton Town drew 2-2 with Hanslope and Potterspury Res beat Brackley Sports Res 2-1.

Bow Brickhill Res go into their Division One Cup final against Stoke Hammond this Saturday on the back of a 4-2 defeat to Deanshanger Res. But they remain well clear at the top of the table.

Stoke Hammond were 2-0 winners over Syresham Res, while Olney went down 7-0 to Marsh Gibbon, Cage Athletic lost 4-1 to Padbury Village and Great Linford Res thumped University of Buckingham 5-0.

With Comet MK in trophy action, Scot took advantage to extend their lead at the top of Division Two to nine points after beating Yardley Res 4-1.

MK Wanderers ‘A’ enjoyed a 5-1 win over Silverstone Res and St Georges went down 2-1 to Marsh Gibbon Res.
