Caistor Six-a-Side League: Techys close in on title

Caistor Techys have one hand on the first-ever Leisure Leagues Caistor Six-a-Side League title after extending their lead to five points last week.

Their 3-2 win over NK Dons, however, was not straightforward as the Dons put in a superb performance and were extremely competitive from the off.

They got off to an unfortunate start when they conceded a penalty, but once again they hauled themselves back into the game.

A controversial second goal for Techys was adjudged to have crossed the line, but Dons fought back to grab a late equaliser.

Just as it seemed the leaders would be held to a draw, Aaron Ford forced a defensive error, allowing Techys to grab the winner.

As well as NK Dons, three other teams can still clinch second position, and CTFC will not give up hope of an upset at the top.

Young Prospects looked most likely to challenge Techys for the title until a recent slump, and returned to winning ways.

They defeated an out-of-form Bottom of the League 4-0 thanks to an excellent performance from Alex Lusby to snap a two-game losing streak.

They next face Caistor Techys in a match up they cannot afford to lose if they or CTFC hope to challenge the leaders.

CTFC are currently in red hot form and swept aside Grey and Young Ones 5-1 with Paul Lockington grabbing the man-of-the-match award.

Lockington carried his team forward and will want to ensure they at least finish in the runners-up spot to collect their medals.

The returning Crusaders could do nothing to prevent an outstanding performance from Dynamite Parfitt as Alfie Murray put in his most complete performance of the season.

The display included goal assists and a phenomenal workrate as his team outclassed and outfought Crusaders 6-0.
