AC Olympia took the local honours in Division Two as they won 4-2 at Cheltenham Saints.

Hope and Gibbs scored for Saints but doubles from Elliott and Quemby earned the Bishops Cleeve side the three points.

Offenham Rovers dropped valuable points in their Division Three promotion bid as they were held to a 3-3 draw at Ecosamba.

Lennox, Kavanagh and Rahman scored for the home team, whilst Rovers registered through Fisher, Tustin and Hickman.
