The under-14 Lancers remain on top of Division Three after a victory at Stotfold. Sam Frazer-Bossom was on target twice while further goals from Joel Strickland and an own goal made the final score 4-1. In the mini soccer competition the under-10 Templars suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Royston Celtic A, while the Crusaders continued their improving form by holding Celtic B to a goalless draw. The Knights game against Arlesey Town 'A' also finished goalless, while the Lancers and Arlesey B produced a close fought encounter with the visitors finally taking the points in a 3-2 victory. The under-11 Templars resumed their season after the Christmas break in the best possible way as goals from Jhai Dhillon, Sam Talbot and Ben Pearson gave them a comfortable 3-0 win at St Neots. A Ben Rayner goal was the under-11 Crusaders only consolation as they found visiting Potton too strong on the day, ending up on the wrong end of a 13-1 score-line. In Division Four the Knights picked up another useful point as they fought out a goalless draw at Stevenage Colts. The under-12 Templars put last week's county cup defeat behind them as they returned to league action with a 2-1 victory against Fairlands Youth Blues.

Alex Baker scored the Templars goal in a 3-1 defeat against Bennington, while the Knights went down 6-1 against a very strong Letchworth Garden City Reds side. In Division One of the under-15 league, the Templars picked an excellent point, as an Alex Wilson goal earned them a 1-1 draw against highflying Wymondley Park, while the Saints were on the wrong end of a 2-0 score line against second in the league Letchworth. The under-15 Crusaders will feel they deserved more for their efforts than to return from Sawbridgeworth Town 6-1 losers. James King scored the Crusaders goal early in the second half. In Division One of the under-16s a weakened Templars side returned from Bedwell Rangers Blues on the wrong end of a 7-0 scoreline. The under-16 Crusaders maintained second spot in Division Two as a single Ainslie Charles goal gave them all three points at home to Buntingford Cougars. The under-17 Crusaders were left to rue missed chances, including a penalty against Risden Wood, and paid the price as two breakaway goals gave the visitors the points in a 2-0 win.
