GNG are setting the early pace and defeated current leaders Thurnby Rangers last week end. They have won nine and drawn one of their ten games and are the in-form team within the league.

It looks like being a three-horse race with Borough and Thurnby in the mix, with Borough creating a six-point gap between third and fourth place with their win at the weekend.

Borough themselves are on a four-win run and completed that on Saturday with a 4-0 scoreline at Asfordby. Goals from Warwick, Turton, Glasscoe and Paye sealed a comfortable victory.

Manager Ady Fuller has moved to bring in some experience with the signing of Brandon Oddy and local lad Aiden Print to bolster the ranks.

He said: “It was a comfortable win in the end, after the initial ten minutes of the game where we kept giving the ball away too easily. I thought after we controlled the game and scored some good goals it could have been six or seven in the end.

“Credit again to the players for putting in a great shift against a team who I think will definitely be up by the top end of the league. Now we prepare ourselves for a massive game this Saturday, which we will be back to full strength for.”

# The Borough Youth team continued their good form with a 4-3 win against Hereford on Monday night. Two goals from Olly Starling and singles from Sam Khan and Man of the match Zidane Mistry sealed the win.
