Matt Cox got the goal midway through the first half following an incisive cross from Lewis McManus as the Hares completed a hard won double over Cornard.

Then in the 55th minute McManus hit the bar with a header from a Barber cross.

March: D Beeny; Hearn, Mattless, Jackson, Jackman; McManus, Merryweather, Pepper; Barber, Odain, Cox. Subs: Cooke, Brady, S Beeny, K Evans.

Next Saturday March go to Wivenhoe Town in the quarter-finals of the First Division Knock Out Cup.

The under 16’s had a creditable 2-2 draw with leaders Stamford Red with Rob Conyard scoring both goals.

The U15’s had a 10-0 win at Thurlby Tigers.

Upwell Town 6

The game was originally due to be played at Gorefield, but was reversed after the pitch was deemed unfit.

Early on Ashton Hodgson got the last touch on a Callum Summers long through ball, before Jonny Allen netted in his 100th appearance.

A determined Wimblington perhaps should have had a penalty midway through the half, but were given a free kick just outside the box.

After some stern words at half-time Upwell came out of the traps. On target were Curtis Oldroyd, Summers, and quick goals from Hodgson and Toby Freear.

Upwell manager Karl Schultz said: “It’s great to see two current players being inducted into our centenary club. Both Matthew Thomas and Jonny Allen have now reached this milestone. Their commitment and desire to play is a real credit.”

Upwell Reserves vs Marchester was postponed due to an unfit pitch.
