Prestbury Rovers Reserves are the new leaders in Division Two of the Cheltenham League.
 
They leapfrogged Smiths Barometrics Athletic Reserves, who were without a game on Saturday, and now have a point advantage, although they have played a game more.
 
It wasn’t easy for them at Fintan however, because they only pulled through by the odd goal in seven.
 
Gala Wilton Reserves cemented their position in third spot with a 3-2 win at Leckhampton Rovers but the big performance of the day in this division came at the other end of the table where Pittville United defeated Brockworth Albion Reserves 2-0, a result that took them off the bottom of the table.
 
In the only other match in Division Two, St Paul’s United went down 3-1 at Welland Reserves.
 
There were just two games played in Division One, one of which saw third-placed Dowty Dynamos lose 3-2 at Bredon Reserves.
 
Bishop’s Cleeve A are now just three points behind Dynamos after they overcame Cheltenham Civil Service Reserves 4-2 and although they are still seventh they have games in hand on all the teams above them.
 
FC Lakeside Reserves moved to within a point of the top in Division Three with a 3-0 success at Malvern Vales Reserves – their 11th win out of 11 – while at the other end of the table there were much-needed wins for Tewkesbury Town Reserves and Worcester City Royal, 3-2 at Falcons Reserves 4-1 at home to 303 Squadron respectively.
 
There were four games in Division Four and one of them saw Bishop’s Cleeve Development go to leaders Tewkesbury Athletic and earn an excellent 2-2 draw.
 
Kempsey Corinthians took closer order at the top with a 7-0 win at Apperley but second-placed Winchcombe Town Reserves failed to take advantage of Tewkesbury dropping points as they too were held to a draw, in their case 1-1 with Cheltenham Saracens 3rds.
 
The remaining game also ended in a draw with bottom-of-the-table Pittville United sharing eight goals with the team immediately above them, Charlton Rovers 3rds.
