Long Sutton Ladies 3,
Cambridge Nomads 0
LSHC Ladies First produced a thoroughly good performance in this third v fourth placed East NW 2 league fixture.
Sutton widened the gap to keep their aspirations of a third place finish on track. Robyn Gribble deservedly grabs the headlines; scoring her second hat-trick of the season, taking her season’s tally to 20 league goals.
Nomads looked a threat until Gribble knocked in two goals in the last quarter of the game, adding to her strike in the first half.
Player of the match was the solid Tania White.
LSHC Ladies Second 1,
Lincoln 3rds 5
A different type of pitch was a major factor in what was a disappointing performance, but Lincoln worked hard and took the points deservedly.
The second half again was a better team effort. A Lincoln free hit struck Amber Wild in the knee and Sutton went down to ten, but she returned and was rewarded with a goal from open play.
LSHC Men 0,
Havering 1sts 4
Sutton worked hard defensively in the first half against a strong Havering side.
Sutton played on the counter-attack and they were nearly rewarded with only the Havering keeper stopping Sisson from opening the scoring. Havering managed to break a dogged Sutton just before half-time.
Havering started the second half well and scored twice. Sutton were unlucky at times and Havering added a fourth. Special mention to last-minute call-up Luke Jackson.
LSHC Men’s 2nd 10, Louth 3
This was the performance the Second team had been promising all season.
With short corner routines that the seconds have worked on all season 1-0 became 2-0 very quickly and even though Louth got a goal back the score was 7-1 at half time via Ben Shore four and goals each for Alex Canham, Ed White and the returning from injury Charles Hardy.
Further Sutton goals from Fox, Canham and Adam Wiles.
MoM: Ross Gavaghan, hard work in midfield.
LSHC Men’s Third 3,
Cambridge City 5ths 2
With a full squad of 16 players, Sutton had a rare opportunity to claim points from City.
Two goals by Gary Hales, and a poacher’s goal by Jack Smith gave Sutton a cushion.
Three crucial points for Sutton to help maintain their 5NW status.
Bourne Deeping 5ths 2, LSHC Men’s 4th 1
A sterling effort from Sutton’s fourths as they visited table-topping Bourne Deeping.
Joss Calderbank had his best game of the season in goal while an equaliser arrived courtesy of Luke Proctor who tapped in after White’s thunderous shot had rebounded off the post.
