alfreton sunday league making his mark The Alfreton Insurance Sunday Football League fixture list was much reduced as a result of postponements resulting from the wet weather over the weekend. The only game in the top division featured a local derby that involved Marlpool White Lion and Coronation Club. A rather scrappy affair was lit up by striker Mark Whitton who hit a hat-trick for the visitors, and was aided and abetted by Carl Pare who scored twice. Kaine Knight and Matt Hunt were on the mark for the hosts but they finished well beaten 5-2. Duffield Dynamos maintained their promotion challenge from Division Two at the expense of Blackwell MW. In a closely fought encounter, they emerged as narrow 2-1 winners. Ripley White Lion stay well clear of the pack though

after beating local rivals Out Of Town, for whom Liam Brown added to an own goal.

Adam Hassall (two), Jay Miles and Curtis Fallows scored to

secure a 4-2 victory and maintain Lion’s charge.

Division Three pacesetters Jacksdale Social Club proved too strong for Hilcote MW, who they beat 5-2.

Selston Bull and Butcher scored what proved to be only a consolation goal through Ben Connell

as opponents Boundary Athletic ran out 5-1 winners.

Derby Madrid are showing real improvement and they secured their place in the next round of the cup

at the expense of Holly Bush, who they were able to beat 5-0.
