Rothwell Corinthians remain right in the hunt for promotion in Division One of the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League following a 1-0 victory over Whitworth at Sergeants Lawn.

Joe Wright’s 17th-minute goal proved decisive as the Flourmen’s own top-two hopes suffered a big blow.

The victory was Corinthians’ sixth in a row as they also claimed a fourth successive clean sheet.

The most remarkable result of the day came at Occupation Road where rock-bottom Stewarts & Lloyds were put to the sword by title-chasing Northampton Spencer who ran out 12-0 winners.

The visitors took 29 minutes to open the scoring and only led 3-0 at the break before the floodgates opened in the second half.

Ryan Lovell (3), Luke Stone (3), Jack Bartley (2), Paul Pickering (2), Dan Stevenson and Deanio Bailey-Browne did the damage for the rampant visitors.

Thrapston Town claimed a 2-0 win at struggling Blackstones as Dom Bucciero and Jason Taylor scored in either half to seal the points.

Raunds Town fought back from a goal down to claim a 1-1 draw at high-flying ON Chenecks.

Jez Hindle gave the hosts a first-half lead but the Shopmates earned a point thanks to Karl King’s penalty six minutes into the second period.

Burton Park Wanderers suffered a 4-2 defeat at Bourne Town despite twice fighting back to draw level.

The home side took the lead through Josh Hales before Jake Bailey equalised for Wanderers.

Liam Piddington’s own-goal saw Bourne regain the advantage but again Burton battled back with Taiwo Odutolu making it 2-2.

However, the hosts pulled away as Aris Placis put them in front for a third time before Harley Williams wrapped things up from the penalty spot.
