First-half double enough to edge Park into fourth
Aylestone Park have nudged their way back into fourth place in the East Midlands Counties League.
They moved ahead of Blaby & Whetstone Athletic thanks to a 2-0 win against their neighbours at the Linwood.
The job was pretty much done in the first half as Park found the net twice.
Ephraim Williams fired them ahead and Steve Sadler doubled the advantage just before the break, with Blaby unable to make any headway during the second half.

Lutterworth Athletic's resurgence continued with an emphatic win against Ibstock United at the Welfare.
On current form – United are without a league win to date – Athletic's victory came as little surprise, although the 6-0 margin will have raised one or two eyebrows.
There was no surprise, however, that top-scorer Danny Laywood showed the way by banging in a hat-trick to keep his tremendous scoring run going.
Billy Hayes, Ben Laxton and Harvey Morgan rounded up the half-dozen.
Ibstock remain lodged at the foot of the table with Anstey Nomads immediately ahead of them.
Nomads, however, did secure their second win of the season in the latest round of games.
They claimed a 1-0 victory at Radford as Steve Armson struck with what was to prove the winner in just the 11th minute.
Thurnby Nirvana continue to head in the right direction and they climbed up to eighth after a convincing 5-2 success at home to Ellistown.
The visitors had no answer to Matt Melbourne's eye for goal, the pacy striker hitting a hat-trick.
Ash Day completed the scoring for the home side with a brace.
It was a good day, too, for Bardon Hill Sports as they recorded a 3-1 win against Gedling Miners Welfare.
Liam Hebberd was their star man as he netted twice to go with a strike from Dean Partner.
Bardon will try to add to that tomorrow night when they are again at home, Holbrook providing the opposition.
Holwell Sports finished empty-handed at Graham St Prims, where they were on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline.
And there was no joy, either, for St Andrews. They were defeated by the odd goal in five at Radcliffe.
