Gribble grabs brace to fire Sutton

Cambridge Nomads 1sts 2, Long Sutton Ladies 2

Long Sutton had a one place and three point advantage ahead of this lower table battle.

Leanne Woodhead and Robyn Gribble went close, however the Nomads went two up.

In the second half Jess Hudson pumped a pass from defence which carved open the Nomads defence and found Gribble. She held off the attention of several defenders before scoring.

Gribble, who always looked dangerous, converted a short corner which was especially well injected by PoM Hannah Greenacre.

Next weekend Sutton travel to Watton for another lower-table clash.

Horncastle 2nds 2,

Long Sutton Mens Third 4

Sutton continued to press and just before half time took the lead through a fine finish from White.

Early in the second half Man of the Match White struck an even better finish for Sutton’s third.

Horncastle made it 3-2 but Lovegrove dispatched a penalty flick eventually given for a foot in front of goal.
