Eden Grove made a winning start to 2016 with a 5-2 Premier Division win at Atletico Tap Maker as the Doncaster Sunday Alliance League resumed following its festive break.

But it was the only top flight game to go ahead as the wet weather took its toll with 18 of the 27 scheduled games being called off due to unplayable pitches.

Luke Smithson and Dean Wilburn shared the Tap Maker consolation goals.

Eve’s Trust Dynamo’s beat both the weather and bottom club Auckley (7-0) to retain top spot in the Championship on goal difference from Rossington Welfare.

Welfare beat Wheatsheaf (Doncaster) 2-0 in the only other Championship game to be played.

Just two games survived in Division One with Parklands Spartans climbing into fourth spot after beating leaders Finningley Athletic by the odd goal in seven.

Ryan Evans bagged a brace for the winners with Steffan Cairns and Lee Isaac also netting.

Scawthorpe United climbed above FC Ivanhoe on goal difference after beating the sixth-placed Sprotbrough side 4-3.

AFC Schoolboy beat visiting Highwayman 6-2 to claim their sixth Division Two win in 15 starts. Kyle Barcliff scored both the visitors’ consolation goals.
