The Trinity Trophy kicked off with a goal fest in the Gainsborough Sunday League.

In the nine games there were 67 goals struck last weekend.

The closest and highest scoring game saw Division Three teams Morton FC and Gate Inn Sutton have an 11-goal thriller that just saw the home team into the next round after a 6-4 victory.

Three teams scored nine goals with higher divisional teams proving just why they are in a higher league.

Kings Arms had far too much class and ability for a gallant, but ultimately outclassed Newcastle Arms, winning 9-0.

North Wheatley Phoenix had the same result against Misterton United.

Stanwood Engineering held their own against Tuxford WMC almost until half-time, but in a dominant second half Tuxford ran away with the game to win 9-1.

Beckett Arms battled hard against BFC Birches before tired legs and a bigger goal threat from the Retford team saw BFC Birches run away with the game in the second half and win 7-1.

Owston Ferry SC produced the only lower Division One against higher placed opposition when they defeated Ingleby Arms. A dominant second half performance saw Owston Ferry win by 6-1.

There was very little to choose between Jack & Jill and Rose & Crown and it was hard on the Jack & Jill players that they should lose the game 3-2 after contributing so much to a very even game.

Division One teams Liberal Branch and Harworth Colliery met in Gainsborough and a good local cup tie went the way of Liberal Branch 4-2, where the taking of goal chances proved to be the difference between two evenly matches teams.

Ship Inn Morton moved into round two after a close 2-0 win against Grove Mill Peacocks.

There was just one Premier Division game this week and it saw unbeaten Real Liberal travel to Ranby Rangers.

The prison team by its very nature can be very good or very ordinary depending on just who they have available.

It certainly seems to be a time when they have some very talented players in the prison at present.

An unbelievable 10-3 victory for Ranby Rangers suggests they are going to be a very difficult team to beat.
