For the second week running, the weather intervened in the Central Midlands League weekend programme, with several matches falling victim to waterlogged pitches.

The Black Dragon Badges North division fared best, with just one postponement.

It was a different story in the Black Dragon Badges South as only two games survived.

Southwell City made sure there was no upset at Bishops Drive, beating bottom side Calverton Miners Welfare 4-1. There was a hat trick for Southwell’s Liam Webster.

Stewart Gill was the home side’s other scorer, Lewis Wheelhouse getting a consolation for Calverton.

The points were shared in the other game as Holbrook St Michaels and Hucknall Town drew 1-1.

Both goals came within three minutes of each other, Kyle Johnson’s 75th minute goal for Holbrook soon being cancelled out by Leon Aikman.

Holbrook are now fourth from bottom while Belper United, who didn’t play on Saturday, are fourth from top.

Speaking of United, their reserves were in action but ended up on the side of the result as there was a rare success for opponents Welbeck Welfare in the Reserve Premier League.

They beat Belper 4-2. Robbie Savage, with a hat trick, and Andy Mack were the men on target, while the Belper goals were scored by Dean Salt and Mike Smith.
