March Town Reserves top the table but not at their best
Several games survived the weekend’s heavy rainfall.
Cambs County League Senior B leaders March Town Reserves were not at their best but won 2-1 at Fordham. Reece Thompson scored after half an hour to make it 1-0 to the Hares at the break, but they conceded early in the second half and were lucky not to concede again.
However, five substitutions sparked the visitors into life and they won the contest in the 86th minute when sub Sam Bedwell scored with a great header.
