Long Sutton Mens 1st 1,
Peterborough Mens 1st 7
It was small town versus big city on Saturday and it showed as ’Boro outplayed Sutton in this Premier B encounter.
Sutton battled hard all game and gave it their all but were beaten by a quick, well drilled outfit. Sutton did manage some good passages of play at times but were just not firing on all cylinders against the team who should win the league.
Sutton will regroup and their fighting spirit will fire them up again for Crostyx on Saturday, 1pm at Peele Leisure Centre.
Long Sutton Mens 2nd 3,
Horncastle Mens 1st 0
Sutton returned to winning ways with a disciplined performance against a well structured Horncastle side.
Jeremy Watt orchestrated things in the middle of the park, ably supported by Dan Batten and Luke Lovegrove. Nick Bailey’s goalbound deflection was made sure by Ben Shore. Minutes later the battling Batten forced his way through the defence and put the ball calmly into an open net.
In the second half Horncastle were unable to breach Man of the Match James Cliff’s goal. Bailey nutmegged his marker at the top of the ‘D’ and calmly despatched the ball into the bottom corner. Sutton travel to Boston next weekend.

Boston Mens 2nd 0
Long Sutton 3rds continued their run of fine form and after good finishes from Andy Blom and Ed White were 2-0 up.
Before half time Ben Maris stole in and made it 3-0. Captain Andy Clarke was caught by a stray stick in the face but continued for the rest of the game. Man of the Match Alex Canham and Clarke netted. This takes them up to second in the league table.
Long Sutton Mens 4th 1,
Spalding Mens 4th 2
Long Sutton defended well and by half time it was scoreless, in one of the best starts of the season.
Spalding then scored from open play. Sutton moved the ball well in the midfield with Ian White and Lee Cousins mixing the play up. Then a break from Sutton with George Smith receiving the ball at the top of the D beat his man to score and bring things level.
Then Spalding won a short corner and drag flicked one in at the near post. Sutton continued to push but could not finish past the Spalding goalie.
Long Sutton Ladies 1st 1,
St Neots Ladies 1st 0
Long Sutton worked exceptionally well as a team, which put a lot of pressure on the St.Neots defence, but they failed to capitalise.
Sutton then lost their team cohesion and this continued into the second half. After a string of short corners Sutton finally took the lead from Bryony Normanton (PoM). In the last five minutes Sutton started to work as a team again, but they could not convert their chances.
Long Sutton Ladies 2nd 3,
Grantham Ladies 1st 1
An emphatic win as once again the on-form Ladies 2nds triumphed over good opposition.

An outstanding performance by keeper Claire Billingham and good outfield play from Helen Worth, Laura Temple, Anna Smith and Louise Billingham. Jayme Hunt came on to make some good interceptions at left back.
PoM: Anna Smith.
