Beth nets again but Wirksworth hit six to stay top

In the last round of games before Lockdown 2.0 was announced, Mickleover’s in-form striker Beth Jones maintained her run of scoring in every game, with one of the goals in a 2-1 win at SK Vipers; her 12th goal in six games.

It wasn’t enough for Mickleover to retake top spot, however, as Wirksworth scored six against Chesterfield Development to stay top on goal difference. 

Draycott moved up to third after a comfortable win against AFC Mercia. The game between Pride Park and Belper Town was postponed due to most of Belper’s squad being in isolation. 

There were only three games in Division Two. The top two, Sandiacre and Matlock, were without a game so it was an opportunity for Chesterfield Inspire Blues and they took advantage with a narrow win at Castle Donington, the three points putting them two points clear at the top. 

University of Derby took an early lead against Woodlands Reserves, but were trailing 1-3 by the break, and despite creating enough chances could not pull it back in a goalless second half.

The win moves Woodlands up to third and level on points with Sandiacre and Matlock. Hilton Harriers returned with all three points from a trip to Buxton after a win against Vipers.
