Upwell lost out to Cambs League 5D title favourites Chatteris Fen Tigers 3-2 this weekend, despite being 2-1 up at half-time.

Upwell manager Karl Schultz said: “We had our chances but just couldn’t convert them. We hit the inside of the upright, missed a couple of one-on-ones and their keeper pulled off a terrific triple save!”

Both of Upwell’s goals came from Gary Green.

Benwick Athletic Res got off to a flyer against Manea Utd Res, when Gary Davis’ diving header went in from Dayne Moore’s flick on. Manea were leading 3-1 with ten minutes to go.

A great individual goal from Paul Newstead reduced the deficit.
