Cambs League Division 3B
Upwell travelled to Suffolk as they beat second in the table, West Row Gunners, 4-1.
Despite missing up to five regulars, Upwell condemned their hosts to their biggest defeat of the season.
Upwell went ahead just after the 20th minute once Jack Watson latched onto new signing, Claudio Cerquieras' through ball. Five minutes before half-time, Mario Santos put Scott Wylie through to score his first Upwell goal.
In the second half, Wylie put a fantastic reaction shot into the top corner. Cerquieras rounded off a great debut by adding a long range effort.
Upwell manager, Karl Schultz said: “After a manic week with player unavailability it’s been such a relief to get the result. We’ve got a large number of games in hand over a lot of the teams in our league, but hopefully we’ve got enough strength in depth to achieve our goals.”
Upwell Reserves took the first points off Guyhirn this season with a 1-1 home draw. The reserves, who were playing their first home game of the season, put in a gutsy performance to ensure Guyhirn didn’t make it 11/11. Upwell’s goalscorer was Connor Sidaway on his debut.
Manager John Trower was ecstatic, commenting: “We deserved something today. It’s great to bounce back after last week’s poor performance.”

Manager Brian Symonds said: “The team pulled together under difficult conditions and seem to grind out results when it matters.
“I still need a least two more players to improve the squad so if anyone is interested in joining, please call 07788423038.”

Upwell A produced a poor performance this weekend, getting knocked out 3-2 against Watlington Reserves.
Manager, Harry Griffin, said: “It’s the first time we’ve lost this year and we deserved to! We were nowhere near good enough and the hunger wasn’t really there. We are a young side and have to bounce back in our league match with Pentney next week.”
