Winstanley Warriors Reds won 5-0 at Southport and Coppull United won 7-1 at Tarleton Corinthians.

Acregate Lane LC stay top of the premier division without kicking a ball, but Hunters & Ingol Rangers are already breathing down their neck after winning 3-2 at Springfields to make it four wins out of four.
