Second win of season

BASEMENT Peterborough League Combination Division Three side Leverington A bagged just their second win in 13 attempts after winning a bottom of the table showdown 2-0 at home to Ryhall United Reserves.

James Woods and Wayne Wallis were on target.

It puts the first points of the season on the board for Leverington, who have had three deducted earlier in the campaign.

In the Premier Division, Parson Drove triumphed 6-2 at rock-bottom team Stamford Belvedere, with Drove manager Nick Markillie relieved that the game was comfortable after the visitors cruised into a 4-0 half time lead.

He said: “We were pretty much always in control and we were never really threatened. They got their two goals towards the end when we took the foot off the pedal.

“The result was never in doubt – which makes a change for us.”

Scoring star was Scott McManus with four, but Markillie made a special mention of two-goal Artur Mikaila, who was excellent according to his boss.

The win means Drove go to fourth from bottom and leapfrog local rivals Leverington, who lost 3-0 when they hosted mid table Eye Sports.

Long Sutton travelled to Division One leaders and title favourites Kings Cliffe, who have now sealed the title with this win.

James Ward replied for Sutton in their 6-1 setback.

Second from bottom in Division Two Guyhirn faced a crucial home clash with Gedney Hill, who were a place and two points above them. However Guyhirn lost 4-2 despite strikes from Paul Newton and Steven O’ Mahony.
