DODDINGTON Reserves clinched the Cambs League Division 5D title with a 2-1 win over Coldham United on Saturday.
But they had to do it the hard way with Coldham leading 1-0 until the last six minutes when Jim Smith fired a double to take the three points. It was a little harsh on fourth placed Coldham who can rightly feel they deserved at least a point from the game.
Doddington finished just one point ahead of Mepal Reserves who kept up their challenge with a 7-1 win over Estover Park Reserves.
Wimblington A team’s 17 year old Anton Kaval hit a hat-trick of long shots including one from near the halfway line in the 6-2 win over Walsoken. Sam Collins hit a brace and Dan Blake stole another in their comfortable win.
Upwell went down 4-2 against Wisbech St Mary C in an entertaining encounter. Veteran striker, Andy McClagish had a helping hand in both Upwell goals where he won the penalty which Jeff Elsey converted in the first half. He then unselfishly set up Matthew Thomas for the winger’s sixth goal in adult football.
Doddington’s first team had a setback to their Division 2B title hopes when they lost 1-0 to Over Reserves with the last kick of the game on Monday night. They now need to win their last two games and hope Witchford drop points. Manea are in pole position and take on Doddington on Saturday.
