ROSSINGTON United clinched the Doncaster Sunday Alliance League Division Four title with a 4-0 win at Bessacarr.

Newly-crowned Division Three champions Balby Academy of Sports served up a high-scoring 6-5 win over third-placed Grove Carvery.

Third-placed Edlington Top Club lost out by the odd goal in seven in their Division Two clash at Rosehill Press, for whom Robert Lee (2), Joe Corrie and Sam Gibson netted.

Hatfield Celtic took over top spot from Tumbler in Division One on goal difference after beating Adwick Park Rangers 6-4 in their final game of the season.

But Tumble, held to a 3-3 draw by Wheatley Hotel (Carl Miller, Craig Newsom, Andrew Mellor), can still claim the title if they avoid defeat in their last game.

Vinny Ogbe earned Park Social a 1-1 draw at Askern Railway, for whom Tom Bentley netted.

Second-placed Sprotbrough - Ricky Smith and Mike Carlin sharing out the goals - were held to a 2-2 draw by Styrupp.

Goals by Joe Booth (2), Jake Wright and Sam Wright proved in vain for Finningley Athletic in their 6-4 defeat at Corner Pin.
