The Hares recorded their biggest victory in recent memory at Sudbury Reserves on Saturday.

A trip to AFC Sudbury Reserves is usually a tough one, but March took their chances and were 4-0 up by the break, with a brace from Ondre Odain, and a goal each from Rob Conyard and Matt Cox.

After 15 minutes of the hosts being on top in the second half, Dan Woods struck and Odain bagged another two.

The Reserves were beaten 3-0 by second placed Buckden.

The tenth-spot Hares are tonight away to basement side Needham Market Reserves and next Saturday entertain Diss, who are two places above them in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One.

S Tech North League Ladies

March Town 11 
Tydd St Mary 0
Tydd SM 0 March 8

With S Tech North leaders Bourne drawing two games, March moved four points closer after two wins over Tydd,

In the first game, the Hares won 11-0 with goals from Shannon Kelly (4), Adele Munday (2), Charley Miller (2), Anna Hatcher, Emma Frost and Emma Searle.

In the away fixture, Tydd put in a strong performance and hit the post after Searle had given the Hares the lead. Kayleigh Churchyard scored a great lob on her first start. Frost and Miller also scored before half-time.

In the second half, PoM Searle completed her hat-trick, Jess Harvey scored and sub Kelly also.

Hares manager Gary Davis said: “Tydd have really improved this season, and if their chance had gone in, I think it might have been a different game.

“We need two wins from our last four games to be runners-up and there is still an outside chance of finishing higher. We have only lost once in the last nine.”

The Hares are training through the summer and are in four summer tournaments. All players (new and old) are welcome to join in training sessions – contact Gary on 07824 337771.
