Upwell edge close derby

Upwell came out on top with a hard-earned Cambs League 1-0 derby win over Outwell Swifts, despite missing six regular players.

Upwell held firm in the first half playing against the wind while Outwell hit the crossbar.

A slight tactical change saw Upwell take charge and with 15 minutes left they won it via a Matt Thomas long-range free-kick.

In League 5C, Benwick Ath Res beat Needingworth Res 3-1 for the second week running. Goals: Alex Cooper twice from 30 yards and Rory Parker.
