Lee-thal finishing helps Reserves net first win

Leverington Reserves won their first Peterborough League Division 3 game of the season, 3-1 at Oundle Town Reserves.

Lee Markillie 2 and Mariusz Kudyba were the scorers.

Long Sutton Reserves stay second from bottom after losing 2-1 at Peterborough Sports Parkway Reserves, Dean Withers finding the net.

In the Premier Division Parson Drove went third from bottom after losing at Eye Sports 4-2, Eddie Gachette and Scott McManus being on target.

Manager Nick Markillie said: “We didn’t adapt as well as them to a bobbly pitch and windy conditions and we went 3-0 down after 25 minutes.

“We battered them in the second half. Artur Mikalia had a great chance, and had we taken it at 3-2 I think we probably could have gone on and won it.”

Leverington lost 7-0 at home to Peterborough Sports Parkway with manager Stuart Webb saying: “The lads got a bit of a lesson. We had a really young side out against a good side.

“We didn’t start very well and got punished. We’ve just got to pick ourselves up.”

Webb praised 17-year-old centre-half Wayne Palmer, adding: “He did extremely well and outshone a lot of older teammates.”

Division 1 side Long Sutton Athletic lost 6-2 at Whittlesey Blue Star, with Matthew Cawthorn and an own goal from a Jake Clitheroe strike.

Boss Keven Cawthorn said: “We dominated the game for 80 minutes, but it’s the same old story – individual errors have cost us goals.

“In the second half we played all the football. They had a couple of ex-Premier Division players up front, and they played to a plan. We just got sucked in by them.”

In the Lincs Junior Cup Sutton Bridge lost 4-2 at home to Skegness Town and Tydd St Mary went down 5-0 to visitors Crowland Town.
