CITY Colts missed another chance to go top of the North Bucks & District League Premier Division after early leaders Great Horwood dropped their first points of the season on Saturday.

Great Horwood’s 100 per cent start after five games came to an end when they lost 1-0 at home to Grendon Rangers, but Colts could only draw 3-3 at home to Loughton Manor. That leaves Colts one point behind the leaders and they have now played a game more.

Colts also missed the chance to go top a week earlier when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Thornborough and Great Horwood were in cup action.

Elsewhere Potterspury were held to a 2-2 draw at Great Linford and MK Titans suffered a 6-0 defeat to Stewkley.

Brackley Sports Res became Bow Brickhill’s latest victims in the Intermediate Division as they won 6-1 to make it six wins out of six at the top of the table.

Wicken Sports also remain unbeaten following their 6-1 win at Hanslope, while AFC Santander edged out Wolverton Town Res by the odd goal in five, City Colts Res were beaten 5-0 at Buckingham Town Res, Denbigh Hall Sports picked up their first win by seeing off Deanshanger Athletic 4-2, and Potterspury Res drew 2-2 with Syresham.

Bow Brickhill Res are also flying high at the top of Division One, making it eight wins out of eight by beating Charlton & District 2-1.

Olney are the only other undefeated side but they were held to a 1-1 draw at Syresham Res and stay second. The result of the day came from Stoke Hammond who thumped high-flying University of Buckingham 9-3.

Elsewhere Wicken Sports Res beat Cage Athletic 1-0, Woughton drew 3-3 at Marsh Gibbon, and Bletchley Bridge were hammered 10-1 by Padbury Village, keeping them bottom of the table.

Comet MK beat Hanslope Res 2-1 to go top of Division Two with five wins out of five, but it’s incredible close with no less than five teams all on 15 points. MK Wanderers ‘A’, Scot Youth, Great Horwood Res and Stantonbury Social Elite – who went into Saturday’s action top of the pile – are all tied with Comet MK.

Stantonbury surrendered their place at the summit by crashing 6-0 to Scot, while Wanderers beat Silverstone Res 3-1, Great Horwood were 3-1 winners at Westbury, and St Georges drew 1-1 with Marsh Gibbon Res.
