Hampstead and Westminster and Anchorians remain neck and neck at the top of the Nastro Azzurro South Premier as the two clubs battle to reclaim their National League places. Mark Cowley brought his season's total to 16 with two goals in Hampstead's 6-1 win at Tunbridge Wells.

Two goals from Andy Simmons and one from Neil Archer gave Anchorians the points in their 3-0 win at Wokingham, while Ramgarhia won 5-4 in a thrilling game against Beckenham to take them into fourth.

Cambridge City enjoyed a 5-2 win against struggling Redbridge and Ilford to keep them on maximum points, three ahead of Chelmsford in the Adnams East Premier. Mark Cullen scored four in Chelmsford's 6-0 win at Cambridge University.

In the North, Norton had their game postponed, but still have a five- point lead and a game in hand over their nearest rivals, Formby, who could only manage a goalless draw away to Sheffield Bankers.
