Arlesey Town shifted themselves out of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division relegation places with a draw away to Ardley United.

The Blues trailed inside 10 minutes but Gabriel Ryan equalised with his second goal of the season midway through the second period to clinch a 1-1 draw.

It means with seven games to go, they have the same points as rivals Colney Heath and Hoddesdon Town, who are due to play each other on Tuesday night, but sit higher than them in 17th by courtesy of a much better goal difference.

Nick Brown's men also play on Tuesday with a home game against title favourites and leaders Leighton Town.

Saturday sees them go to neighbours Shefford Town & Campton, the same day Leighton return to New Lamb Meadow as they take on Baldock Town.

The Reds' match at London Colney this week was postponed.

Stotfold are second in the table after being held to a 2-2 draw at home to Harpenden Town.

Jack Bradshaw scored two identical goals from corners to cancel out an early Harpenden lead but the visitors equalised early in the second half to share the points.

The Eagles have a trip to Crawley Green on Saturday.

Letchworth Eagles lost 2-1 at home to Winslow United in Division One to remain 11th, Alexander Iyamah on target for them.

They host Lutterworth Athletic on Tuesday before going to Thame United Res on Saturday.

In Division Two, Codicote lost 4-1 at home to Aston Clinton, Sam Willett getting their only goal.

Hitchin Town enjoyed a fine 1-0 win at home to Stratford Town in the Southern League Premier Division Central.

Josh Allen's goal on 27 minutes, his first for the club and scored after the goalkeeper couldn't hold a Layne Eadie pile-driver, cements their position in mid-table and just keeps any threat of relegation at arm's length.

There could have been more too, Fin Wilkinson hitting the post from a free-kick eight minutes from time while also bending another set-piece just past the upright.

The Canaries were also indebted to a good save from Charlie Horlock to deny Callum Ebanks who broke clear in the first half.

Mark Burke's team go to Redditch United on Saturday.
