Although last night’s games were just friendlies, a massive well done to Carl Jukes’ COTR FC, who got their first ever win as they edged past Tipton Family Church FC 4-3. The game was delicately poised when an excellent strike from distance hit the roof of the net.
And double celebrations, as they also got their first hat-trick, with Jordan Pratt the history-maker on that occasion. Carl summed the game up with his match sheet comments: ‘Excellent, hard fought win’.
Church On The Rock FC 4 Goals: Jordan Pratt (3), Allan Parkes MOTM: Jordan Pratt

The other game was equally as close, as Allstar Lions beat United FC by just the one goal. No hat-tricks, but four players scored a brace.
Allstar Lions 6 Goals: Matt Nicholls (2), John Morgan (2), Peter Madge, Sam Ralley MOTM: Paul Nash
United FC 5 Goals: Nick Harrold (2), Arron Worrall (2), Sunny Singh MOTM: Simon Robinson
