The Hares had to call on a handful of youth team players due to absences, but all the goals came in the last 25 minutes.

Scorers were Matt Barber with a cracker from 30 yards, a Josh Jackman throw palmed in by the keeper and another fine goal from Jackman after good interplay with Barber.

Cambs League

Burwell Res 1 Upwell 6

Upwell Town ran out comfortable winners at Burwell Swifts Reserves, despite missing a number of regulars.

Jonny Allen netted his first since January then the hosts equalised after goalkeeper Luke Fage made a rare lapse in concentration. This rallied the visitors who then netted through Danny Dowdney and Ashton Hodgson to make it 3-1 at half-time.

Upwell grabbed a fourth through Claudio Cerqueira, who took the ball off Jonny Allen’s toes before Cerqueira netted twice more in the last couple of minutes to complete his hat-trick.

Manager Karl Schultz said: “Every game is massive for us at the moment and we need to remain focused on the game in front of us.”

Upwell’s John Ablett Cup final is tomorrow (Thursday) versus AFC Barley Mow, 7.30pm at Ely City’s Unwin Ground, CB6 1AQ.

Upwell Res completed the double over Lakenheath Casuals Res with a 5-2 win. Goals came from Daniel Hempson (4) and Archie Murfitt.

Upwell A ensured a top three finish in NWN Division 3 by beating Springwood 3-0.

Goals: Toby Freear (2) and a 30-yard “worldie” from Connor Cox.
