Round 4 of Group A began with two teams in form. NJV7 had just picked up their first win of the day. Stilton Rovers had just picked up two victories in a row and could join Sago at the top if they could extend that winning run to three games.

The first halves of games had proved extremely tight in the majority of games in Group A and this fixture was no different. The second half kicked off with the teams level at 0-0 but the goals certainly flowed after the break and James Dey in particular found a rich vein of goal scoring form.

A James Dey hat-trick and a goal from Peter Ciezak capped a fine second half display. Jose Branco scored a consolation for NJV7 but he could do nothing to prevent the Portuguese team slipping to a 4-1 defeat. Having lost their first game, Stilton Rovers were now firing on all cylinders.

 
 

Up next on Pitch D was Sago versus Crabtree Amblers. Sago had just seen Stilton Rovers erode their lead at the top but Sago could re-open a 3 point gap if they could secure victory here.

Crabtree Amblers had started off well with two wins in a row but having just tasted defeat they needed to bounce back quickly as the race for Cup qualification was hotting up. A win here would make it a three way tie on 9 points and probably make it a 3-horse race going into the final round of fixtures.

It was Sago who hit the front when Rui Gomes scored his fourth goal of the tournament. Crabtree Amblers had an uphill task to come back against a Sago team who were yet to concede in the tournament. This uphill task became a mountain to climb when Carlos Rocha doubled the lead to 2-0 in the second half.

Sago completed their fourth win of the day and sealed their Cup qualification in the process. Crabtree Amblers hopes of also qualifying were now out of their hands but they still had a chance.

 
 
 

Dickie Dogs were back in action on Pitch C when they entertained Southgate County Vets. Dickie Dogs needed to win their last two games and hope Stilton Rovers lost their last match in order to qualify for the Cup. A win here would almost certainly mean qualification for the Plate. A defeat would be a big blow for their hopes of a trophy today. For Southgate County Vets this was a must win game anything less and they knew they would be eliminated after the group phase.

The game went the way of the Dickie Dogs in the first half as they established a lead through Caspar Clark. It was 1-0 at the break. In the second half an own goal helped Dickie Dogs into a 2-0 lead before they wrapped the game up themselves through Adam Dewhirst's second strike of the tournament.

It capped a fine display for the Dickie Dogs who rose to third place in the table. Southgate County Vets remained in sixth position.
