Tommy hits six of the best in derby thriller


Wisbech St Mary 4,

Soham Town 0

Saints got off to a flying start in the League Cup semi-final with an early goal from Jacob Smith.

However, Soham battled hard to the end, chasing every ball and making Saints work hard for the win.

Further goals from Jacob Smith, Callum Greentree (penalty) and Corban Oldham in the second half helped to secure them a place in the final.

Chatteris Tigers 2, Hardwick 0

Tigers have now not conceded a goal in over 360 minutes of football and, although not at their best, had a comfortable cup quarter final win.

Damen Beckett was on hand to bundle in the opener midway through the first half and although dominating the possession it took a super 20-yard strike from Beckett to double the lead in the second minute of the second half.

The whole back four were solid and Caleb Stimson (mom) was unlucky with a firm strike in the second half.


Northborough 1,

Leverington Blue 2

An outstanding performance by the whole Leverington team, with the midfield the stars in this Peterborough Youth League clash.

The Blues took the lead midway through the first half with an own goal after sustained pressure.

Northborough equalised from the penalty spot but Leverington battled hard for the remainder of the half and finished on top after a goal finished by Harry Johnson (mom).

Arbury Aces 1, Chatteris 4

Arbury Aces held on to a 0-0 score throughout the first half, giving stand-in goalkeeper Ivo Nooteboom a few scares in the process.

In the second half Cameron Sharp scored a header following a great curling free kick from Asa Revell, who also provided Sam Dew with his first goal, also with his head, with a well-taken corner.

Arbury made it 2-1 before Dew scored again. Dale Browne and Alex Lowe helped their goalkeeper out with some last ditch saves on the line, before a hard-working Charlie Pitt provided the last goal with a good shot.

March Rangers 5, Haverhill 1

With 15 goals in 12 starts Matty Carey continued his run for Rangers as they cruised through this latest league match.

Jacob Birt opened the scoring after 20 minutes after coming off the bench.

Haverhill did well to keep Rangers out and managed to go in at the break 1-0 down.

Second half saw Rangers go 5-0 up with goals from Matty Carey, Ben Calvert 2 and Josh Hussey. Haverhill grabbed a consolation goal in the last minutes. Man of the match was Jordan Tombling.


Sawtry Blue 0, WSM 10

St Mary scored a convincing win against Sawtry Blue to move to the top of the table. Shay Fairclough opened the scoring with further goals from Reagan Brown, Jack Witney, Ollie Potter, Tobi Woods, Dom Venckus and Alex Albutt completing a hat-trick. Saints put in a very good all round performance.


Leverington 2, Feltwell 3

A fine game and good advert for youth football. Leverington went ahead when Will Rackley finished well and Matthew Orobosa made it 2-0. In the second half Feltwell scored three times to take the lead. Leverington pushed for the equaliser but it wasn’t to be.

Josh Hammond was good in goal; Jack Davis worked hard out on the wing. Aaron Bass (mom) showed good grit and fought for his team mates.


WSM Yellows 7,

Parkway Eagles 5

Saints started off well with an early goal through Ben Gale but WSM then took their foot off the pedal and let Parkway score three quick goals.

However, just before half-time against the run of play Saints gave themselves a lifeline by drawing back level at the break.

In the second half Saints went up a gear and played some good passing football. Goalscorers were Ben Gale 3, Cameron Lee 2, Dylan Mason and Lewis Swann. Man of the match was Eduard Breide for a hardworking display.


Leverington 7,

Hungate Rovers 5

This was a fantastic local derby with Leverington extending their unbeaten run to 15 games.

With the scoreline at 2-2 going into half-time, the game could have gone either way. After half-time Leverington started to have more possession and create chances, Tommy Wiles (mom) was outstanding and scored six goals. Liam Dennis also got on the scoresheet. Full credit to Hungate for never giving up and pushing Leverington all the way.

WSM Yellow 9, Crowland 2

Saints took the lead through Kieran Symons (mom) within the first few minutes, setting the tone for the match that followed. Crowland missed a penalty and then scored an equaliser spurring Saints on to score four more goals before the break, a further two coming from Symons to complete his hat-trick, Shane Punton and Seb Ziabka.

The second half followed the same pattern with Ziabka completing his hat-trick, with Punton and Rob Thompson rounding off the scoring. Crowland were awarded a penalty to make the final score 9-2.


Hungate Greens 5, Feltwell 0

This top of the table clash saw both sides deliver a great display of football.

In the end it was leaders Greens who maintained their 100 per cent record by scoring five goals. Nathan Culley scored the goal of the game after a solo box to box run. Lewis Jackson hit a fantastic free kick to add to his increasing tally of goals. They were joined on the score sheet by the hard working Aaron Buckley 2 and Thomas Skuse.

Man of the match went to Travis Stappleton who gets better and better with each game.

Hungate Whites 2, March SS B 4

March won a hard-fought game against a tough Hungate side to record their ninth consecutive victory.

Caimen Campbell and Kyle Liddy scored one each, and Fyn Smith was the hero with two goals. Special mention to Dylan Rowlett (mom).


Walpole 2, Wisbech St Mary 8

Saints started off in control and soon were in the lead in the cup game through Willis Wright with the opener and then Brody Warren (mom) made it 2-0 after good work from Brandon Furneux.

Wright added another before the break but Walpole hit straight back on the stroke of half time.

The second half saw three more goals from Wright and two from midfielder Tristan Jones. Walpole added a second but the game was already won.

Benwick 0, Outwell Swifts 7

Outwell dominated this cup game throughout in a display of superb football.

Connor Melton hit four goals and Alfie Porter claimed a hat-trick.
