Match off after death of player

Have your say

The Cambs League Division 2B game between Tydd United and Wisbech St Mary Res was postponed on Saturday due to the death of a Tydd player.

Competitions secretary Phil Mitcham of Cambridgeshire FA said after the game at Tydd St Giles Recreation Ground was called off: “A Tydd player was sadly found dead on Friday, that’s why the game was postponed.

“It’s very sad. Obviously the league are very sorry to hear of such a tragic thing to happen to a young man.

“Our thoughts are with the family at this moment.”

Chatteris Town FC drew 1-1 away to Brampton in the Premier Division on Saturday afternoon.

Alex Saunders put the Lilies ahead in the first half.

Boss Steve Bright said: “The referee gave a dubious penalty which Max Flintoff, who saved a penalty last week, got a hand to it but couldn’t quite keep it out.

“A draw was a fair result as both teams battled hard. We seem to play better against the better sides.”

Chatteris host Wisbech St Mary in a derby next weekend.

A serious head injury to Estover Park keeper, Marcus Larham, impacted on the 3B 5-1 loss to Elsworth.

Tommy Neal pulled a goal back and John Trower also went close with a header. Larham left in an ambulance and had mild concussion.

Upwell recorded a 3-2 5D win away to Littleport A, ensuring they kept a 100 per cent record against the opposition.

Upwell goals: Jonny Allen and winger Matt Thomas two, including a 30 yard screamer.

The second half was full of ill-discipline and the referee booked a Littleport midfielder three times.
