A Gavin Davis double saw Stannington Village beat Brinsworth Whitehill 2-0 to stay top of the CBC Premier.

Davis hit the bar early on before he gave Stannington the lead with a glancing header from an inviting cross by Aaron Worsfold.

The home side doubled their lead when a quick break saw Rob Shelley cross for Davis to sidefoot home at the near post.

Up to second is newly promoted Oughtibridge WM after they made it 29 games unbeaten with a 2-1 victory at The Vine with goals by Ollie Black, who finished superbly after a Sean Lee corner found Ollie Black free at the back post to apply a superb finish, and Lee after man of the match David Sheakey put through for him to chip the keeper.

Vine had equalised when Rikki Davidson and Danny Seaman combined to set up Joe France to fire home and went through on several occasions, Matt Ellis forcing a good save out of the keeper then hitting the bar.

Both Bulls Head and Stocksbridge Park Steels have gone six league games without a win after they drew 3-3.

Bulls led 3-1 through Mark Bryant’s deflected free kick, a John Kentzer effort and a Mark Woodcock own goal from an intended back pass.

Phil Cookson made the first for Steels, his cross being was turned in by Scott Birch, then scored the second himself before the equaliser in the final minute when Mitch Savage fired home an unstoppable free kick from twenty five yards.

Division One leaders Southey Social went five points clear as a Todd Guest double helped them to a 5-0 victory at Ranch. Their others came from an Adam Danks looping shot, John Mellor, whose left wing cross was missed by everyone, and Ash Matthews who pounced on an error by the keeper.

Mario Esposito bagged a brace as Handsworth Turf beat second place Intake Old Boys 4-1. Ben Shackshaft and Ollie Grady got the others. Intake had levelled when a John Higgins corner was scrambled home by Dan Humberstone.

An Anthony Marshall hat-trick helped third place Loxley to a 5-3 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Norton Oaks A, a match which included four goals in a 10-minute spell by the winners. Loxley’s other scorers were a Lewis Vessey penalty and an own goal after a Narshall corner. Oaks had a brace by Sam Ireland and a Danny Reet penalty.

Carl Andrews scored both goals as The Peasant beat Aston Swallownest 2-1 to climb into the promotion reckoning. Aston had taken a deserved lead with a goal from new signing Chris Esburger, but they failed to add to it despite several good chances. The Pheasant also had a penalty brilliantly saved by Aston keeper Scott Hall.

A Steve Davies double helped Dam House Bar end their run of four games without a win with a 5-2 victory at Ecclesfield Players Lounge. Jason Kelly’ scored his first goal for Dam House, Matthew Jebson and Ian Rumley completing their tally.

Ecclesfield replied with an own goal and one from Gavin Hunter.

Phoenix flew back to the top of Division Two with a 3-1 victory at Cobden View with goals by man of the match Karl Howden, a Harl Savage header a second from a Josh Aston corner to double Phoenix’s lead before half time, and Bradley Clarke to make it 3-0 before Lee Mansell’s through ball gave Chris Allen to mark his debut with a consolation goal for Cobden.
