TABLE-topping Osmaston took on second-placed Bradley in the pick of the first round games in the Bill Redfern Memorial Cup.

It was Bradley who came out 5-3 winners in a thrilling game, Jordan Godfrey scoring two of their goals.

There were no further shocks in the rest of the games, though Doveridge found it tough against Mappleton as they scrapped to a 1-0 win.

Stuart Hall scored the only goal.

Coach Rangers swept aside Mayfield 9-0, with Scott Wood and Craig Frith both getting two goals.

Rose and Crown saw off The Bridge 5-0 through two goals each for Tom Hall and Alex Fowler, while Brassington had a 7-2 win against The Wheel.

Joe Redfern scored twice for Brassington but Chris Johnstone went one better with a hat-trick.

Also progressing to the next round are Kirk Langley, 3-2 winners in a tight game against Weston.

In Monday's league games, Osmaston maintained their position at the top of the table by beating bottom club Mayfield 7-1.

They overtook high-flying Bradley last week following a 7-2 success over Red Lion. Jake Smith got four in that game.

There was a welcome return to action for Bradley this week, though, after last Monday's game with Coach Rangers was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

They took maximum points from their game with Biggin, beating them 2-1.

Doveridge followed up last weeks 5-1 defeat of Biggin by beating FC Hulland 6-0.

Biggin will get the chance to avenge that defeat by Doveridge when the two teams meet tonight in the semi-final of the Peter Young Memorial Cup (7pm).

Meanwhile, Coach Rangers stay in touch with the top three after a 3-1 defeat of Kirk Langley.

Brassington and Mappleton drew 2-2 and it also ended all square in the game between Red Lion and The Bridge, that game ending 1-1.

The other game in this league saw Wheel Inn edge past Weston 4-3 to move level on points with Mappleton.
