It was a successful night of non-league football for the area’s teams last night (Tuesday) with Stamford, Deeping and Uppingham all recording wins.

Stamford AFC have virtually guaranteed another shot at the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division next season with their 3-1 win at relegated Stocksbridge Park Steels.

The victory moves the Daniels 11 points clear of the drop zone with just four matches remaining.

Relegation rivals Frickley were beaten 2-1 by Witton Albion last night and now look destined for the drop.

Nabil Shariff scored twice for Stamford and Ryan Robbins added his 26th goal of a brilliant campaign after extending his contract with the club earlier this week.

In the United Counties Premier Division Deeping Rangers are now just a point behind Huntingdon in third place after beating Sileby 3-1 at Outgang Road.

Ryan Oliver scored twice and Stacey Cartwright also scored before the visitors replied late on.

In the UCL Division One Bourne will move out of the bottom two if they beat Burton Park Wanderers at The Abbey Lawns tonight (Wednesday).

In the PDFL Premier Division Uppingham Town secured perhaps the result of the night with a 2-0 win over Peterborough ICA Sports, who had won their 11 previous competitive matches.

The away victory moves Town into third place in the league.
