Belper Tavern Rovers took part in one of the few Derby Taverners Sunday League games not to fall foul of the wet weather as they beat Jonty Farmer 4-3.

The visitors had not won a league game all season , so it was a big surprise when goals from Burton and Dexter (two) gave them a 3-0 lead within the first 20 minutes.

The home side worked their way back and goals from Pecz (two) and McGonigal got themlevel by the interval.

Rovers had the better of the second half , but it was not until three minutes from time that Joe Carnelly drove the ball through a crowded penalty area to find the net and with it earn a hard earned victory.
