Denaby United went a step nearer to gaining League honours when they easily beat Manvers Main on Monday afternoon by 9-1.

Fresh from their cup success earlier in the day, Manvers opened well but found their pace too fast.  Had the Denaby forwards taken all their chances the score might have been doubled.  Mulligan, Gibbs and Ardron each missing open goals.

Goals were scored by COCKER (3),  FLEETWOOD (3), ARDRON (2), MULLIGAN, HOWARTH replying for Manvers.
