Former Wisbech Town goalkeeper Alex Street played for Leverington Sports in their 1-1 Peterborough League Premier draw at Ramsey.

Street, who is at King’s Lynn but not first choice between the sticks, played one game earlier this summer for Leverington, and boss Stuart Webb said of the player nicknamed ‘Pedro’: “I’ve known Pedro for years, he’s a good lad and an exceptional keeper. I spoke to him during the week.

“I know it’s two or three levels down to what he has been playing but he was outstanding. He made one save from seven yards out and their player hit it sweetly – I don’t know how he got it over the bar.”

Webb was happy with a draw after seven players were missing. Sam Cubberley gave the visitors the lead on 35 minutes, but Ramsey scored straight from the restart.

Webb added: “It was like the Alamo for 25 minutes in the second half, the ball kept coming back, then we could have nicked it at the end. Special praise to full-back Danny Balls.”
