Tigers’ title hopes in a spot of bother


Eaton Socon 2,

Chatteris Tigers 2

Tigers’ title winning ambitions took a severe knock being held by a strong and hard-working home side.

Totally against the run of play the hosts took the lead on 19 minutes when a long ball caught the Tigers’ defence out. Keeper Hughes stopped the first effort, but the rebound was tucked away.

Two minutes later Tigers were level after Beckett fed Tyler Crane to slot home into an empty net. Poor defending from a corner later on in the first half led to the hosts leading 2-1 at half-time.

Top scorer Frankie Ransome headed home a Crane corner and with just four minutes left missed a penalty when the home keeper saved well from Anderson. Caleb Stimson (mom) put in a very hard-working performance.

Due to popular demand a further coach has been laid on for the Tigers’ Cup Final on Sunday, May 6 (3.15pm)

Tickets must be purchased before the day at £3.50 per seat. For tickets call 07900160985 or visit the Sportsman pub.

Leverington 2, Outwell 5

Leverington were unlucky in this game with Outwell’s good finishing the difference between the sides.

Leverington’s Aaron Bass and Jacob Shailes put in good shifts.


WSM Blacks 0, Ryhall 1
