White Horse continue to be the pacesetters in the Gainsborough and District Sunday League top flight.

Their 11th win from 11 league games makes it seem as if the Division One title is theirs to lose this season.

Sunday, a day that had a fairly full set of fixtures giving clubs in all three divisions the chance to improve their standings, brought a 4-1 win over Kings Arms for White Horse.

And although they weren’t at their very best it was still good enough to keep their remarkable run going.

With just over twomonths of the season left to go it will take a big effort from the rest in this division or a big slip up from White Horse for them not to be champions.

BRSA kept their challenge going with a fairly comfortable 6-1 home win against Liberal Branch, who are just going through a sticky patch at present, and they never really challenged the BRSA team on the day.

Northern FC sprang something of a surprise when they defeated MUSC who have never reached anything like the heights of last season when they were crowned champions.

Northern FC won 2-1 in what is their best result of the 2014/15 season so far.

In Division Two the leaders Rose and Crown found themselves with a real challenge on their hands against a confident Maltings Meercats.

And at the end of an exciting contest the teams could not be separated and a 3-3 draw saw both take a deserved share of the spoils from the game.

Although they have played more games than everyone Notts Diagonals could yet have a say in the title race in this division.

Their very good form of late continued with a 4-1 win at Misterton United, who seem to have forgotten how to win at present.

Notts Diagonals are certainly a side who can challenge most in this division.

Hallcroft FC were far too good on the day for a Morton FC team that is also struggling to win a game at present.

Hallcroft were full value for the 8-0 victory.

Olde Sun FC and BFC Clumber could not be separated after a very close game that saw both teams battle hard for the 1-1 draw to take deserved point each.

East Markham have shown a lot of improvement since Christmas and their home 4-1 win over Bridon AFC keeps their good form of late going.

The title race in Division Three shows all the signs of going right to the wire with any one from five teams still in with a title chance.

Leaders Black Horse had far too much fire power for a gallant but ultimately well beaten Barnby Moor, the - 3 score was a good advert for the game at this level.

Horse and Jockey, with games in hand, are a real threat and Sunday’s 5-1 win at LRG Yates means they are unbeaten in 2015.

They look certain to be one of the teams in the mix for the title at the end of the season.

Smiffys United have come with a late run and if they don’t win the league they look sure to have a big say in who does.

A 3-1 hard fought victory at Walkeringham keeps them hot on the heels of the leaders.

Stanwood Engineering, who play the game very much in the right way no matter what the result, had a very good 4-0 home win against Ship Inn Morton.

For Stanwood secretary-manager Mick Leek this was a just reward for his persistence.

Ropery Inn and Owston Ferry SC finished all square at 1-1 and the point each was once again deserved by both teams.
