Sutton net final place

LONG Sutton won the Spalding Inter Services Cup last year and booked their place in this season’s final with an empathic 8-0 win against Tydd St Mary at home on Saturday.

The Boston League side were no match for the Peterborough League outfit who ran out very comfortable winners and must have excellent chances of completing the double in this minor competition.

Billy Radeloff 2, Jake Clitheroe 2, Shaun Copeland, Paul Newcombe, Shaun Gedney and own goal came up with the goals .

Manager Paul Preston commented: “It was good performance. We played well and made our superiority count.”

Not so happy was Leverington manger Alan Russell after his team’s 2-1 defeat at lowly Stamford Belvedere in the Premier Division.

Russell commented: It was a poor game and we were very poor. It was not just the odd player but right through the team.”

Leverington took the lead when Adam Bunton scored from 30 yards and Leverington should have been expected to go on and win from there.

But the Stamford side produced two goals that were just as spectacular to take the points.

Russell added: “They scored two goals that we just could not defend against but I felt a draw would have been a fairer result.”

Parson Drove bounced back to form after their Senior Cup defeat with a 2-1 win at Oundle Town. Artur Mikaila and Wayne Morton scored the goals.

Manager Nick Markillie commented: “We played really well in the first half but did not take our chances and I thought it was going to be one of those days.

“Then Wayne scored in the first minute if the second half and substitute Artur scored with his first touch.

“It was a decent win.”

Guyhirn lost 7-1 at home to Riverside in Division Two, while Leverington Reserves had a 3-0 win against King’s Cliffe Reserves in Combination Two. Dale Palmer, Jordan Allen and Shaun White were on target.
