Peterborough League Premier Division side Leverington Sports went down by the odd goal in five to Cambs League Sawston United in the Cliff Bullen Cup.

Leverington came back from two goals down against the high-flying visitors thanks to strikes from Tancel Ibrahim and Nathan Watson, but they conceded the winner with 15 minutes remaining.

Boss Stuart Webb said: “We got it to 2-2 and there was only one team that was going to win from there, but we made a mistake. We let in three bad goals.

“We had seven lads under the age of 21. It must be the youngest back in four in Leverington history, but the young lads did themselves proud and it bodes well for the future.”

Webb gave special mention to Watson, who played in his preferred position just behind the front man; plus 18-year-old centre-half Dale Palmer, who was set to feature in Wisbech Town’s midweek cup match as part of the link-up between the two clubs.

“Nathan had his best game of the season by a country mile,” added Webb.

Parson Drove were knocked out at home by Over Sports 4-0.
