In Division 1 Basingstoke Saints were beaten 0-2 by Soldiers Return. The match stood at 0-0 at half time in an even close-fought game fought fair and good natured throughout, with good chances created on both sides. Soldiers Return opened the scoring, following a throw in ball from the left early in second half, with Freddie Cloke finishing with a powerful header. The visitors scored again fifteen minutes later when Jaime Gelpin put a long ball through for Alex Izzo to run on with only the keeper to beat. The result was a fair one but Saints did have a couple of good chances which they failed to convert late on. This was a fifth win in a row for Soldiers Return.

Soldiers Return Reserves found themselves 0-2 down at half time with visitors DG Athletic taking full advantage of the wind behind their backs. Andrew Butcher and Neil Huddeswell scored for DG Athletic. It was a close game throughout, though, with Soldiers pressing hard in the second half but only able to pull one goal back, put away by Lewis Judd, end result 1-2. The was the first time that DG Athletic have enjoyed consecutive wins, both of them away from home.
