Derby Taverners Sunday League teams were back in action at the weekend after the Christmas and New Year break.

A foggy Manor Ground in Belper saw two entertaining games taking place side-by-side on Sunday morning.

In the Senior Division One, The Grapes lost 6-4 against Sunny Hill Diamonds.

Then, in Intermediate Division 1, Belper Tavern Rovers earned a 2-2 draw with Ockbrook FC.

Ockbrook arrived at the Manor with a 100 per cent record and found the home side in the mood for the challenge.

Two spectacular goals from Tavern’s Chris Saunders gave them a deserved draw.
