Cup joy for Chatteris Town Reserves against Wisbech Town Reserves
There was derby joy for Chatteris Town Reserves in our featured match this week as the Cambs County League 1B outfit triumphed 3-0 at Peterborough League Division One side Wisbech Town Reserves in the Cambridgeshire Junior Cup.
Chatteris first team play in the same division as the Fenmen’s second string so it was quite a cup success for the Lilies, with Brian Smith, man of the match Haydn Brown and Scott Gooden getting the goals.
Outwell Swifts are also through to the next round after a 5-2 win over visiting Longstanton, Brandon Hedge netting three to make it 14 for the season and Adan-Jay Lewis scoring twice to take his tally to 10.

Unbeaten March Town Reserves stay top of Cambs County League Senior B after a 5-0 win at struggling Fenstanton. The Hares took a 1-0 lead against the run of play when Reece Thompson found the bottom corner from 20 yards out before the home side dominated much of the rest of the first half.
After the break, March continued to be on the backfoot before James Monaghan headed home for 2-0. The visitors then rallied and made it four goals in the final 10 minutes. Kyle Sharman set up Harry Powley to make it 3-0 and Powley then assisted sub Kirby to rattle home the fourth.
Sharman rounded the goalkeeper to slot home the fifth but manager Kieran Daplyn said: “For 80 minutes we were in a huge battle and another day we wouldn’t get away with giving away so many chances Coming away very frustrated after a 5-0 win is unheard of but it’s facts. We need to play better than we have.”
