City of Peterborough 3rds 1

Sutton welcomed Peterborough 3’s for their first game of the 2012-2013 season in Premier B and got off to the perfect start.

Sutton broke the deadlock with a quick move from a long corner allowing Andy Shore to deflect a lovely ball from Connor Allen. Keeper Loweth was on fine form.

Nick Ellis slotted the ball home and Sisson soon added a third as Peterborough couldn’t cope with their slick passing and movement.

Sutton upped their game again in the second half. Sisson added his second after a beautiful team move. Sutton unluckily lost Baguley to a yellow card but Peterborough missed a penalty flick. A lovely ball from Fyson found Sisson who created a lovely opening for Hales to make it five in a great team performance.

March Town 3rds 0

Discipline and composure were the key in this opening Division 4NW game against a March team who were only able to field 10 men.

Man of the Match Stefan Fox’s tireless running caused the March defence problem after problem and aided in the opening goal from Adam Wiles. Sutton went into half time 5-0 up after goals from Fox, Bailey, Jason Mallett and Watt. Further goals from Watt, Matt Grange, Luke Lovegrove and Bailey for his hat-trick.

Sutton started the game well against a strong 15 man squad, work from Matt King, Dave Maris and Jamie Slater ensured Horncastle did not settle.

Horncastle took the lead against the run of play.

In the second half Horncastle scored three, however Sutton pulled one back through the hard working Jack Smith.

Bury St Edmunds 1st 2 LSHC Ladies First 0

Long Sutton started the promotion to a higher league with a gutsy team performance against a team relegated from the premier league.

Great defensive work from player of the match Charlene Leuty. Sutton managed to keep Bury at bay until a scramble in the goal mouth resulted in a goal.

Sutton pressed hard for an equaliser with some great attacking runs from Jess Hudson. Hannah Greenacre and Leanne Woodhead.

In the second half a second home goal came from a breakaway run which was passed around the Sutton defence and keeper.

LSHC Ladies 2nd 0, Horncastle 10

Sutton started out well, pressurising the opposition who last year were playing in the East League.

It was a close first half with Horncastle slotting in two goals, but after the break tiredness told and a flurry of late goals did not reflect Sutton’s efforts.
