Burton Ladies 1s were back into the swing of things after a cancelled game last week. They despatched Northampton Saints 2s 7-0 at the Ellis Astro. Not Burtons best team performance but enough to trouble the Northampton backline throughout the game, even when they sat extremely defensive for the duration of the 2nd half. Goals from Nicola Taylor  3, Lucy Pendleton   2, Elizabeth Snelling and Francesca Lord. Man of the match went to Megan Ridley for her constant running up and down the sideline at Right Back

It was a club derby as the Burton ladies 2's faced the Burton ladies 3s. The ladies 2s worked well together, pressuring the strong defence of the ladies 3s. After a lot of pressure the ladies 2s scored 2 goals before half time. In the second half, the ladies 2s put in the hard work, maintaining possession and creating opportunities on goal. The pressure paid off as the ladies 2s scored another 5 goals. The ladies 3s didn't stop the battle and began a comeback, scoring a goal from Katie Furzeman but the ladies 2s managed to keep control of the game. Final score was 7-1 with the 2nds goals from Jane Palmer 3, Rhian Warriner 2, Shannon Dillon and Hannah Tjon Soen Len. The 2nds Man of the match went to Alice Hickman for her efforts in defence.For the 3rds the Man of the Match was shared between Becca Farndell-Thorne and Micky Shaw a credit to all of ladies 3s though who put in a strong effort and played one of their best games this season despite the score line!

Burton Ladies 4th team took on 7th in the table Derby 4ths in a closely fought well contested match. Burton won 6 short corners and hit the post a number of times despite having only 9 players against Derby's roster of 13. Goalless at half time the team had some great opportunities thanks to good play by the team but unfortunately they could not find the back of the net. Tiring in the second half Burton worked hard to try and hold off Derby's energetic attack however the final score was a 3 0 defeat.

Burton Men’s 1s kept there good run going with a 6-1 win against finch field. Scorers were Mark Northcott x2, Mark Ashton-Blanksby, Jack West, Andrew Locker and Liam Goode. There improved form has seen them close up on the leaders and this week two of the three team above them lost. With their game in hand still to come the gap to the leaders could be down to 3 points. Burton have a better goal difference and all the top 3 to play so promotion is now in their hands. Next week will be key as they travel to 2nd placed Chesterfield who beat Burton earlier in the season 2 1.

Burton Mens 2nds made the long trek to Bridgnorth hoping for a good result. Burton started the game strongly and after 15 minutes found themselves a goal up after a good finish by Ben Elson on his return from injury. Bridgnorth showed they were used to the very sticky pitch and used the long aerial tactic, this resulted in 2 quick goals for them, Burton replied by adopting the same tactic and a long aerial ball from Tim Glover found Stanyon who’s pass found Elson who made no mistake and scored his 2nd. Just before half time another burton attack resulted in a poachers finish from Graeme Hamblen. Half time score 3 2 to Burton. The second half was tight with both sides attacking and defending well with a number of good saves by Jack Smith maintaining the slender Burton lead. With 2 minutes left to play the 2nd team jinx seemed to strike again.. A cross into the Burton D hit a Bridgnorths forwards foot but with no whislte, the player then shot against the upright only for the rebound to bounce out and hit Miles Smurthwaite on the thigh and rebound into the Burton goal. So the final whistle went with a 3-3 draw. Man of the match went to Ben Elson.

Burton 3rds went down 3 0 to Sutton Coldfield. Burton took the short trip to Sutton Coldfield knowing that a win could move them to mid table, Sutton Coldfield scored a early goal when the forward forced the ball home. Sutton Coldfield probably had 80 % of the play but some good saves by Russell Jurgen Davenport and strong defending by, James Crane James Robins and George Scott helped to keep the score respectable but they could do nothing about the 2 late goals scored by Sutton Coldfield who deserved there victory.

Burton Mens 4s and 5s both went down by 3 goal margins to Northampton Saints 5s and Leicester 4s.

Burton 6s went down 8 0 to Beeston, one positive was the return from injury of Zorro of the flashing blade, less better known as Ian Harrison, who is once again the current oldest active male player.

The Burton mixed team came back fighting after going 1-0 down against Stone coming back to get a 6-1 win. 2 Goals each for Jamie Cooper, Jamie Jenkins and Mark Northcott.
