Gregory Young’s goal was enough for Rossington to earn the bragging rights against Armthorpe Welfare last Wednesday.

But Ben Hunter’s side could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to lowly Swallownest on Saturday and they went down 4-0 at title-chasing North Ferriby on Tuesday night.

Fifth-placed Main currently occupy the final play-off position in NCEL Division One and have a five-point cushion but a couple of teams beneath them in the table have games in hand.
