TWO points separate the top four sides in Division One of the Birdseye Sports Evesham and District League.

Leaders Red Horse continued their impressive form with a six-goal win at Mickleton where Flint (2), Staley (2), Sollis and Harris were on target.

Ambassador remain second when they gained revenge for an earlier defeat at the hands of Offenham Rovers. Neil Emms hit a hat-trick and Danny James netted twice, with Sollis (2) and Leeming netting for Rovers.

Champions Moreton Wanderers comfortably dispatched Evesham WMC with goals from Mills, Oxley, Winter and Habbits. Upton Snodsbury, meanwhile, showed their title credentials as goals from McManus and Gary Aldington defeated the Bear.

A first half strike from Reid eased Inkberrow's relegation worries and left opponents Willersey seven points adrift at the foot of the table.

Peopleton moved seven points clear in Division Two after recording a third win of the season over closest rivals Broadway Utd.

A Pete Boorman treble earned Mountinneers a surprise win over Oddfellows Arms and a Sibanda double ended Golden Cross's poor run with an odd goal in seven win over Defford and Besford.

Lower Moor found form, hitting eight past Shipston with Phil Haines scoring three and Dean Smith netting twice.

Hampton WMC, with games in hand, defeated second-placed Moreton Town in the third division thanks to a Dipple treble. Hurrell and Neal replied for Town.

Tewkesbury Town dropped valuable points as they fell at Crowle who scored through Allen and Stone.

Ashton recorded an away win at Queens with goals from Gregg, Baker and White, while Wick-hamford defeated Pebworth with Martin, Rimmer and Heath on target.

The bubble seems to have burst at Division Four leaders Pinvin. Following the previous week's first league defeat, United were on the wrong end of a six-goal thrashing by third-placed Bell who scored through P. Roberts (2), M. Roberts, Davies, Harris and Harrison.

White and Stanley both struck twice for Lenches Lions as they won at Bengeworth Sports, while a Davies double helped Royal Oak overcome Gate Inn.

Bullock found the net twice as Cider Mill overcame Crown Athletic and Eckington won at Riverside thanks to goals from Mather, Henry and Bostock.
