Whittlesey 0,

Estover Park 0

Estover could do everything but score as wave after wave of attack was thwarted by some great goalkeeping and poor fortune.

Credit has to be given to both teams for a pulsating match in extremely poor weather conditions.


Hungate Greens 5,

Hungate Yellows 1

Greens managed to shine in this club v club fixture.

A wonder strike from Jay Rout brought the game to life. Yellows played well and got a deserved equaliser through Jordan later in the first half. A great strike by Jacko for Greens made scoreline 2-1 at half-time .

Greens were often thwarted by a good performance from Daniel in the Yellows goal.

Three very good strikes came from Jack Dida (man of match), another for Jacko and a first of the season for Nathan Culley.

Well done to both sides for playing football in the right spirit despite the weather.
