Action from Rothwell Corinthians' 2-1 home defeat to Daventry Town in the UCL Premier Division

It was an excellent day for promotion-chasing Raunds Town and Rushden & Higham United.

The Shopmates remain four points clear in the second automatic promotion place after a fine 4-0 victory over fellow high-fliers Potton United at Kiln Park.
