Duffield easily beat Ilkeston Rutland to stay third and Elvaston moved closer in fourth by thrashing Clifton. Staveley Welfare claimed important points at Matlock with a first win of the campaign while bottom of the table Stainsby Hall also won for the first time, victory over fellow-strugglers Sawley & Long Eaton Park making their situation look a little less bleak. In Flint Bishop Division Two leaders Alrewas had their lead cut to 14pts after they were held to a draw Nutbrook while Ambergate were comfortably beating Rolls Royce Leisure. Aston kept in touch in third place with victory over Sandiacre Town. In Technical Turf Division Three leaders Walton were without a fixture but remain well in charge following a setback for Wirksworth & Middleton who picked up just 7pts from a draw with Morton Colliery.
