In the Premier Division, Goals from Carey Welford and Carl Woodhead were enough to give league leaders North Gawber Colliery a 2-1 away win over Oughtibridge WMSC.

Third placed Penistone Church Reserves, fresh off victory last week against North Gawber, travelled to the Look Local Stadium to face fourth placed Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves. The game ended all-square 1-1. The point means both Penistone and Stocksbridge are six points off the pace.
