Long Sutton's men's 1st team stormed to an 11-0 win over St Ives 2nds over the weekend.

The Fenland side defied their opponents' high-flying league position to send them home pointless.

Josh Fyson sent an early effort high over the goal, but soon redeemed himself by scoring the first of his four goals after a well-worked move between he, Dan Batten and Josh Baker.

Luke Proctor soon added his name to the scoresheet, finishing neatly into the bottom corner.

Sutton went into the break 4-0 up, with Fyson completing a first half hat-trick.

The second half started in the same vein, with the men in green fighting as one - something they have very much lacked in previous weeks.

A dominant start seen Daniel Batten adding a goal early on. This was added to by Josh Baker's first of the afternoon from and was swiftly followed by a nice tap in for Tyler Hagan.

Baker would add his second to the game, swiftly followed by his third. A diving tap in from Batten earned him his second.

With less than a minute to go, a wide Ollie Taylor effort found Fyson to add his fourth and round off the scoring for the day.

Dan Oldfield, Sam Gray, Micheal Donaghy and James Cliff impressed in defence throughout the afternoon, keeping their opponents at bay.

This was the 1sts' forst clean sheet of the season.

Elsewhere, Long Sutton 2nds were looking to bounce back from the previous week's defeat when they faced off against City of Peterborough 6s in a top-of-the-table clash.

Both teams started the game well, with a number of chances at either end of the pitch.

The returning Jeremy Watt in midfield soon struck up an understanding with Fox and Ed White in repelling the skilful Peterborough midfield, with the ever reliable Clarke, Baguley and Taylor their usual sturdy selves in defence.

Canham and Will White both forced good saves from the Peterborough keeper, with Sisson making good stops up the other end.

Shortly before the break, Peterborough took the lead and led 1-0 at half time.

After an inspiring team talk during the interval, Long Sutton came flying out of the blocks; youngsters Ben Hales and Josh Smith fought like tigers, Jeremy Watt and Fox battled hard, and the White brothers Ed and Will began to gain some control in the midfield.

Frazer Watt then took the second half by storm, and was assisted by Ed White for the equaliser.

The same combination then gave Sutton the lead, but Peterborough struck back to make it 2-2.

Sutton matched their resolve and following a short corner slip from Jeremy Watt, Canham finished well to make it 3-2.

A Peterborough penalty then drew the scores level at 3-3 with ten minutes to play.

With seven minutes to go, Will White stole the ball in midfield and fed it to his brother Ed, who found Jeremy Watt whose precise finish gave Sutton a 4-3 lead.

Peterborough launched a late assault on the Sutton goal, but they were unable to find an equaliser this time.

The Long Sutton 2nds jumped back up to the league summit after the hard-fought performance.

Next up for them is a trip to face Ely next week.
