M2 2-1 Marton Furness
M3 4-0 Chapeltown
M4 3-0 Lindum
M5 14-0 Rotherham

M4: The 4s knew that a win was compulsory to keep them in the hunt of the promotion spots, and defeat would consign them to another year in this division and subject to the restructure.
They travelled to Lindum to take on Lindum's 5th XI.
The game was very delayed due to an incident in an earlier game, so the 16:30 start ended up being a 17:15 start.
Doncaster started brightly, and it didn't take long for Raphi Wilson to get on the scoresheet from a short corner.
Good work from Jessop and Tom Brown stretched the Lindum backline and created several openings that Doncaster couldn't quite exploit.
In the 25th minute, Tom Brown was fouled close to the edge of the box, Tom took the free hit himself, dribbling sufficient distance before driving into the D and striking the ball passed the home keeper.
Half Time 0-2
Lindum started the second half strongly, but the Doncaster back 3 and Tom Grocock held firm. Grocock dominated his D and did not give Lindum forwards any time to get a shot off.
55 mins into the game, R Wilson scored his second to ensure that Doncaster had breathing space.
The rain continued to pour, and Lindum continued to press, but all Doncaster players put in a shift to ensure that a clean sheet was secured.
Final Score 0-3, Doncaster travelling home with all 3 points.
The 4s now have 2 weeks off and are next in action on 24th , away at table-topping Barnsley.
All games remaining (5) for the 4s are must wins as they sit 3rd, 3 points behind Lindum 4s, 6 points behind Barnsley, both having a game in hand over Doncaster.

M5: Off the back of a hard fought victory against Brigg, the 4s were perhaps slightly apprehensive about the game against the Rotherham 3rd team.

Despite the 4s taking some of the 5th team for their game, the 5s were still able to field a strong side.

The game started very strong. Quickly getting the ball down the right and a close-range effort from the near post, Jak H putting the 5s ahead in under 5 mins – 1-0. A further goal shortly after put us 2. Scott Carrick put us 3-0 up at the 15 minute mark with a shot from the edge of the D. This pretty much set the tone for the game going forward.

Doncaster passed well, moving strong up the right and left. Further goals from then on were aplenty.

Max W, getting on the scoresheet 3 times in quick succession all from close range and Isaac R putting us 7-0 up going into the break.

On the bench subs were well used, all 16 getting good match time and contributing.

The second half was more of the same. Jak H and Max W picking up more goals from close-range shots worked in mostly from the right.

More joined the scoresheet with goals from Noah W, Sam M, and Josiah P – with a goal in the top right (he says).

The second half finished with a further 7 goals, meaning a final score of 14-0 to Doncaster.

Throughout the game, Rotherham had a few attacks, but Doncaster snuffed out them out with only really one chance that Beau had to save.

The goals summary in the end was:
5x Jak H
4x Max W
1x Josiah P
1x Isaac R
1x Sam M
1x Scott Carrick
1x Noah W
