Denaby United opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Premier Division table after inflicting Hemsworth MW’s first defeat to record their sixth win in as many starts.

Michael Russon and Steven Elllor shared the United goals with Graham Phillips replying.

Sutton Rovers claimed only their second win of the season in style, scoring five without reply against Hemsworth Town.

James Andrews bagged a brace with Kell Embury and Simon Roberts also getting in on the act.

Denaby Main (Wayne McSeveney, Gary Adcock) strengthened their grip on third place following their 2-0 win at bottom club Yorkshire Main, who have picked up just one point from their opening six games.

Rossington Main hit lowly Armthorpe Markham Main for six in their Dawson & Burgess Premier Division KO Cup first round tie.

Scott Maughan helped himself to two of high flying Main’s six goals with Rhys Brailey, Tom Harte, Callum Coburn and Marcel Chipamunga also chipping in.

Luke Watson claimed the Armthorpe consolation.

Division One leaders Dunscroft United returned to league action to claim top spot from FC Central.

They posted a sixth successive win to move three points clear after beating winless Bentley Pumas 7-2.

Jamie Hindson led the way for United with a four-goal haul with Carl Grant also weighing in with a brace and Karl Kennedy a single strike.

FC Central, who started the day on top of the pile courtesy of a better goal difference, lost 4-2 away to a Swinton Athletic side which had won just once in five starts.

Ricky Parker (2), Rory Kellett and Mark Clare claimed the Swinton goals.

Harworth Colliery remain third on goal difference after beating Westwoodside Rangers (Declan Bacon) by the odd goal in three.

Ackworth United remain hard on their heels after beating Bawtry Town by the odd goal in seven.

Phillip Land, James Bouskill, Stuart Gordon and Paul Arrowsmith shared their goals with Craig Wrenn (2) and David Allen replying for the home side.

A Torran Adams double and a Mark Harrison goal earned Scawthorpe Scorpions a 3-3 draw at Brodsworth Welfare.
