Wellingborough Town took the headlines in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division as they ended Huntingdon Town’s unbeaten start with a superb 3-2 success at Jubilee Park.

The hosts took the lead through Declan Rogers but the Doughboys hit back to lead 2-1 at half-time thanks to Damon Herbert and Jon Mitchell.

Mitchell grabbed his second to give Craig Adams’ side a two-goal advantage and they held on for their best result of the season so far despite Niks Savalnieks pulling one back for the home side.

It wasn’t such a good day for Desborough Town as they were hammered 8-1 by leaders Deeping at the S6 Stadium.

The visitors set the tone for the afternoon by taking the lead through former Corby Town striker Josh Moreman with the game just a minute old.

Alex Beck added two more while Mitch Griffiths and Ryan Oliver made it 5-0 at the break.

Will Arnold pulled goal back for Ar Tarn early in the second half but Oliver was on target again before Beck completed his hat-trick. And it was Moreman who rounded it off with eight minutes to go.

Raunds Town’s unbeaten start to the Division One campaign remains intact after they held leaders Oadby Town to a 0-0 draw at Kiln Park.

Both sides are still yet to taste defeat this season as neither were able to break the deadlock while Oadby had Ash Harris sent off early in the second half.

There was also a 0-0 draw at Seargents Lawn as Rothwell Corinthians claimed their first clean sheet of the season, an impressive effort against high-flying Eynesbury Rovers.

Rushden & Higham produced a fine second-half display as they fought back for a fine 4-1 success at Bugbrooke to move up to eighth.

Jamie Jollands’ goal had the hosts in front at half-time. But Jory Mann levelled six minutes into the second half.

Lewis O’Dell put the Lankies in front and then Craig Harrower gave them some breathing space. And a terrific spell of four goals in 14 minutes was rounded off by Steve Ainge.

Irchester United’s recent revival continued and they made it seven points from nine in the space of a week with a 2-1 derby success over Thrapston Town at Albert Street.

Jedd Whiteman gave Thrapston the lead but Darrell Smith levelled the game up before half-time.

And the Romans claimed all three points thanks to Ryan Lovell’s goal on 75 minutes.

Burton Park Wanderers had few problems in returning to winning ways at Latimer Park as they inflicted an 11th defeat in a row on Woodford United with 4-1 victory.

Leigh Chapman and Cavell Jarvis gave Burton a 2-0 half-time lead but Chris Fury gave Woodford hope with 11 minutes left.

However, Joe Smyth’s team finished strongly with Deven Ellwood and Dan Spaughton wrapping up the points in the last 10 minutes.

It was a bad day for Whitworth as they went down 6-2 at home to St Neots Saints.

The Flourmen actually took the lead through Remy Brittain but Chae Simons’ brace gave the visitors a 2-1 advantage at the break.

Brittain was sent off early in the second half and Tom Wood made it 3-1 to St Neots soon after.

Kyle Walter pulled one back for Whitworth but further goals from Junior Muya (2) and Wood completed a comfortable victory for the visitors.
