It was a fine day for Rothwell Corinthians in the Future Lions United Counties League Premier Division as they claimed a 3-1 success at Kirby Muxloe.

Two goals from Adefolarin Ademidum and one for Colum Nugent gave Jim Scott’s a second win in three matches and moved them to within a point of safety.
