Houghton Main replaced local rivals Shaw Lane Aquaforce at the top of the County Senior Premier League with a 2-1 home win over High Green Villa.

Aquaforce started the day one point clear at the top of the league but their derby at home to Penistone Church was called off due to bad weather so Houghton pulled two points clear on the same number of games as the Shaw Laners.
