LONG Sutton United produced their best performance of the season to inflict a 7-2 defeat on title-chasing Stilton in the Peterborough League Division One on Saturday.

The Magpies led 2-0 at one stage but were pegged back by second placed Stilton to 2-2 only for the visitors to race away again with another five goals.

The Long Sutton goals were spread among seven players with Alan Burch, Jake Clitheroe, James Ward, Matt Radeloff, Matt Cawthorn, Ryan Lennon and Sean Copeland.

Manager Vinny Mackay said: “That was certainly the best win of the season and a very good performance.

“I was a bit worried when they got it back to 2-2 but we just went on again. It was a fearless performance from the lads and we were really worthy winners.”

Leverington are in a downward spiral to the season as they lost out 2-0 at Crowland in the Premier Division and will do well to hold onto 10th place.

Parson Drove remain third from bottom after a 2-1 home defeat to title hopefuls King’s Cliffe but manager Nick Markillie was very disappointed his side lost the game.

Artur Mikaila gave Drove the lead in the first half and Cliffe did not equalise until 10 minutes from time.

Substitute Michael Moore was then sent off for retaliating to a punch in the back and the Cliffe winner came five minutes into injury time.

Markillie said: “We played really well, created some good chances and outplayed them at times.

“The winner came five minutes into injury time and I do not know where the referee found that extra time.”

Sutton Bridge lost 3-2 at Castor in Division Two with Lee Still and Nick Reims scoring and Leverington Sports Reserves bounced back to winning form to keep their promotion hopes alive in Division Three with a 4-2 win against Uppingham Reserves.

James Woods hat-trick and Adam Bunton was also on target and they are now fourth with four games left.
