Hot on the heels of the top two are The Biggin, who are proving a hard nut to crack in their promotion season and they are only one point behind as they too drew 2-2 with Multiple Scoregasms.
Forming a break away four are North Seaton Elephant, who had no problems easing past new team Not In Service 7-0.
In division two it is a case of a battle of the Stations, and it is Station FC who have top slot at present as they recorded a great 5-1 win over Brazilliant to go three points clear.
Suprisingly Station Boys, who were joint top, were beaten 4-0 by bottom club A Town Rangers.
