March Town overcame their local rivals to win the BKD Cup on Saturday.

The Hares led 2-0 at the break, but the Lilies came back to 2-1 then 3-2 before late strikes finished it off.

The hosts’ goals were scored by Dan Woods (2), Lewis McManus, Denny Escorcio, Jordan Goult and Sean White.

Joint Hares boss Chris Bartlett said: “There were some good things about the game but some things we’re nbot quite happy with.

“The passing was better and I’ve been pleased with the players (in pre-season). They’ve worked very hard.”

Key midfielder Luke Pepper is still sidelined with a quad injury and Bartlett added: “Luke is doing some light training.

“He’s seen three physios so far and they’re doing what they can.

“Goalkeeper Dave Beeny has a knee problem but hopefully he’ll be OK.”

March Town travel to Chatteris Town tonight for the return (7.45pm) with the Hares taking a young side due to their Thurlow Nunn season starting next weekend.

March players used were: James Barwick, Lewis Hearn, Jordan Goult, Grant Watson, Liam Lorraine, Tom Flatters, Lewis McManus, David Jackson, Ash Brand, Dan Woods, Denny Escorcio, Juliano Menezes, Tom Morton, Jason Harrison, Sean White.
