Gachette hits goal double

Two goals from defender Eddie Gachette gave Parson Drove a 2-1 win against Deeping Reserves in the Peterborough Premier Division on Saturday.

Gachette has moved up to midfield this season and put Drove ahead in the first half with a header at the far post from a cross by James McManus after a short corner.

Deeping equalised 10 minutes into the second half, but Gachette struck 10 minutes later to restore Drove’s lead with an identical goal to the first one.

Gary Haimes, in charge in Nick Markillie’s absence, said: ”I think we just about deserved the win. We battled hard and worked hard and it was a good performance. Both sides missed chances.”

Leverington’s run of five wins came to an end when they lost to an 88th minute goal at home to Eye Sports 0-1.

The home side had the better of the first half but could not take advantage of the two or three chances that came their way.

It was Eye’s turn to gain the upperhand after the break but the game looked destined for a draw until Eye struck the winner with two minutes left.

Leverington boss Stu Webb said: “It looked a 0-0 draw all the way until they came up with the late winner. A lack of concentration has cost us.”

Long Sutton were held to a 2-2 draw against Holbeach Reserves in Division One. Matt Radeloff and James Ward scored their goals.

Leverington Reserves continued their good run with a 4-0 win at Uppingham Reserves in Division Four with James Woods 2, Craig Bradshaw and Lewis Miller on target.

Sutton Bridge lost out 4-3 in a thriller at Eye Sports Reserves in Division Two, while their reserves suffered a 6-3 defeat at home to Thorney Reserves.
