Deadlock for Saints Under 18s

UNDER 16

Cottenham 3, Chatteris 2

CHATTERIS travelled with just 12 in the squad and within three minutes Mitch Dawson went to hospital with an injury. Even so, Chatteris took the lead in this Cambs Pye Cup clash through a super bit of skill by Sam McWilliams. Cottenham equalised, against the run of play after 26 mins, only to see Tyler Crane actually score after having one disallowed earlier to give the Fenland visitors a 2-1 half time lead.

With the wind behind them, Cottenham came back strongly and equalised mid-way through the second half. The game opened up as both teams pushed for a winner and McWilliams and Crane should of scored while Gary Jackson stung the Cottenham keeper’s fingers, but with just two minutes left a mis-kicked and wind-assisted cross found its way into the net to give the hosts the win and progression to the quarter final.

Chatteris: Hughes, Anderson, McDermott, Baker, Merryweather, Stimson, Jackson, Ransome, McWilliams, Joyce, Dawson (Crane). MOTM: Joe Baker

UNDER 15

St Ives Rangers 0, Chatteris White 1

THE home side, having won their previous Cambs and District Colts League match by 7-4, were contained by an excellent Chatteris defence from Matthew Lilley, Cameron Sharp, Ivo Nooteboom, Dale Browne and goalkeeper Matthijs Nooteboom. A solitary goal by Asa Revell, following a great pass from Dale Browne, was all that separated the teams in a scrappy match.

Chatteris White squad: Asa Revell, Luke Bailey, Alex Lowe, John Day, Cameron Sharp, Matthew Lilley, Charlie Pitt, Dale Browne, Samuel Dew, Ivo and Matthijs Nooteboom.

Hungate Rovers 8, Thetford Bulldogs 0

Thetford battled hard but Rovers’ all round passing game was the difference between the two teams.Goalscorers were Ryan Mcmanus 2,Jack Hepting 2, Lewis Bass,Charlie Hewitt, Adam Fleet and Josh Ovendale. Kieran Akred who played the final quarter in goal, made two good saves to keep the visitors out.

March Rangers 4, Overs Sports 2

STRONG winds hampered both teams in this sporting junior league match and Rangers took the lead with a terrific shot from striker Matty Carey shortly before the break. Over never gave up and produced an equaliser on the stroke of half time when keeper Ron Love made a reaction save only for Over to head in the rebound.

In the second half Over started well and took the lead after 10 minutes. Rangers upped their game and equalised with a shot from Lewis Welcher and within minutes had taken the lead with a second from Matty Carey. Shortly before the final whistle a long shot from Tony Cunnington beat the keeper to secure the points for Rangers. MoM: Rangers captain Jacob Birt.

UNDER 13

Litcham 6, Leverington 2

WHAT a difference a week makes. When these teams met the previous week Leverington ran out worthy winners, but seven days later they were well beaten. With the wind playing a big part, Leverington struggled to get any rhythm going and found themselves three down at the break. It was much the same in the second half, although they did get on the scoresheet through Sam Lewis who also got the M.O.M award and Will Rackley. Aaron Bass also played well.

UNDER 12

Thorney 4, Wisbech SM Yellows 2

WSM dominated the first half of the match but some outstanding saves from the Thorney goalkeeper kept them out. The second half was much more even and Thorney took their chances in front of goal well after some poor defending from WSM. Cameron Lee and Ben Gale scored the two WSM goals and Ben Gale was man of the match for his outstanding work rate and performance.

Yellows: Josh Curson, Jack Baker, Alex Watson, Lewis Swann, Ben Gale, Cameron Lee, Airidas Prakulisas, Jack Gale, Dylan Mason, Harry Witney, Brooklyn Adams, Eduards Breide.

Leverington 3, Boston 0

Leverington dominated this game from start to finish playing some great football. James Johnson opened the scoring, Mitch Smith neatly converted a penalty and finally Ben Jackson scored late on. Man-of-the-match was Jake Meyer who worked tirelessly in midfield.

UNDER 11

Reffley 2, Estover 1

ESTOVER led by a single goal up until the last five minutes against a team that haven’t lost in the league for over a year. That opened came from Kieran Doncaster who lobbed the keeper from 30 yards, but two wind assisted goals let Reffley escape. Patrick Allington pulled off some great saves and there was no faulting the effort put in.

Wisbech SM Yellow 6, Blackstones 1

SAINTS opened the scoring within two minutes thanks to an excellent volley from the half way line by Ethan Goodale. This set the tone for the rest of the first half with two more goals from Kieran Symons.

Saints came out in the second half with a different formation allowing Blackstones to score an early goal but Saints soon settled and once more dominated play adding further goals from man-of-the match Cain Plitsch, Rob Thompson and Symons to complete his hat-trick. Another solid team performance from Saints.

Leverington 8, Boston Black 0

LEVERINGTON continue to make good progress in the Peterborough League with this latest fine win. Billy Carmen and Louen Savage both scored hat-tricks and the other goalscorers were Tommy Wiles and Liam Dennis. MoM: Charlie Rackley.

UNDER 10

Wisbech St Mary Yellows 3,

Wisbech St Mary Purples 0

IN windy conditions the ball had to be kept on the ground for both teams and this produced a classic match and Ethan Drew put Yellows one up at half time. Purples raced into the second half and were unlucky not to score as they produced a lot of pressure. Josh Lynn was magnificent in goal for the Purples and earned the man-of-the-match award for his team. Brandon Ramdharry grabbed a wonder goal with a scissor kick then added the third a few minutes later to finish an entertaining game, also earning himself the man-of-the-match award.

Benwick Atheltic 0,

March Soccer School B 3

A strong team performance led to a comprehensive result against a well-organised Benwick side. Caimen Campbell produced an excellent MoM performance in midfield scoring twice and Kyle Liddy also finished superbly to get his name on the scoresheet.

March Soccer School 1,

Wisbech St Mary 8

WSM started well and scored twice in first five minutes through Brody Warren and Willis Wright before Sam Fisher scored his first goal for the club to make it 3-0 at the interval. The second half was much the same as good attacking football saw Brody add three more, Willis with another and Brandon Furneux to round it off. March notched a consolation goal. MOM: Brandon Furneux

Wisbech St Mary 3, Holbeach 1

IN this top-of-the-table clash Saints put the away side under constant pressure and Brody Warren opened the scoring with a good effort with his left foot and added a second when bundling the ball home. After the break Willis Wright made it 3-0 before Holbeach got a consolation goal late on. WSM played some good football to make it nine wins out of nine. MOM: Willis Wright who didn’t stop running.
