It was a fine midweek for the local clubs in the Uhlsport United Counties League Premier Division South.

Desborough Town followed up their 1-1 draw with Eynesbury Rovers last weekend by picking up their first win of the campaign as they beat Peterborough Northern Star 4-1.

All the goals came in the second half as the visitors took the lead, only for Calum Plowright to level for Ar Tarn before two goals from Tom Gudyer and one from Brooklyn Biddle secured the three points.
