Another great win for March, but defeats for Wisbech, Parson Drove and Wisbech St Mary

More news, no ads


March Town continued their magnificent recent form with another win on the road this afternoon.

A fourth straight Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League Premier Division win for Ashley Taylor's men cemented seventh spot for the Hares, who are now undefeated in eight games.

Hadleigh United had spoilt the party when they won 2-0 at the GER on the opening game of the season against newly-promoted March, but today the visitors reversed that scoreline.

Ben Matthews set up Eoin McQuaid to put March 1-0 up with a cracker from the edge of the box, and Jack Friend netted his 20th of the season with a chip over the onrushing keeper to make it 2-0 at the break.

Craig Gillies missed a penalty after the break but March won comfortably, with captain Danny Emmington adjudged to be man of the match.

There was no such joy for Wisbech Town, who lost 2-0 away to high-flying Carlton Town in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Midland Division.

On the day that Arran Duke and his assistant Mark Warren were confirmed as the Fenmen's management team for the rest of the season, the visitors conceded in the 20th and 72nd minutes, to stay third from bottom in the relegation play-off spot. Supporters' player of the match was keeper Luke Pearson.

Parson Drove travelled to fellow promoted outfit Peterborough North End Sports in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League First Division North and were defeated 3-1.

North End took a 2-0 half-time lead with a Josh Hales brace, but a much better second half performance saw Ryan Lennon's 10th of the season bring the score back to 2-1, before Hales sealed the win with his hat-trick goal. Drove slip to 11th, eight points off the play offs.

In the same division, Wisbech St Mary are still bottom with just the one point after a 2-1 defeat at Leiston Reserves.Goals either side of half-time saw Saints 2-0 down before Karl Tansley gave them hope with an effort in the 70th minute.
