Chatteris Town 2
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.”
