St Ives 1sts received a walkover as champions Harleston Magpies failed to raise a team for their final Division Two North contest.

St Neots 3rds shared 10 goals with March Town 2nds in their final Division Five North-West game of the campaign. Nathan Read and Jack Nethercott both struck twice for the locals with Adam Horlock also finding the net.

Relegated St Neots 4ths’ tough season at that level ended with a 6-0 loss to Louth 1sts.
