The seconds did well to hold their league leaders Aylesbury 1s to a narrow defeat – 2-1 was the score with the goal coming from Conor Tierney.
The most notable win was by the third team who managed to beat Thame 1s by 8 goals to nil, completely overwhelming their higher placed opposition. Their feast of goals were scored by James Ashburner (2), Jack Barber, Dane D’Cruze, Harvey Loretto (2), Daniel Meyrick and Robin Walls

The 1st cruised to a 53-7 win over Littlemore on Saturday, while the 2nd team won 44-15 against Thatcham to cap a wonderful weekend for the club.
Both Marlow clubs were involved in top of the league clashes at the weekend, and both will feel unfortunate to come away with the results that they did.
Marlow FC had to settle for back-to-back draws as they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bracknell Town.
The Blue’s goals came from Kameron English, James Clarke ,and Isaac Osei-Tutu – meaning Mark Bartley’s men stay remain on the top of the league, three points clear of Bracknell Town.
The other table-topping clash saw Marlow United fall to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Cookham Dean at the Alfred Davis Memorial Ground – but the game was marred by a terrible injury to Cookham player Harry Baker.
Cookham went into the break with a two-nil lead, after having the better of the opening 45 minutes.
It proved a frustrating day for the home side, who couldn’t seem to click going forward – although they did grab a late goal after Darren Rockell headed home from a free-kick.
United now sit 3rd in the league, but are only three points off of top spot, with two games in hand over sides above them.
