Netherton A 0

Tim Lowe’s shot smashed against the outside of the post but on 40 minutes Paul Newcombe hit a rocket which the keeper could only parry to James Woods, who slotted home.

Parson Drove 92 4 Peterborough NECI 3

Two mistakes gifted NECI a 2-0 lead but Drove came back to win.

Kensey Carter made it 2-1. Daniel Short was pulled down but NECI saved the penalty.

The second half saw an NECI player sent off for foul, abusive language. Drove were 3-1 down but a free kick just outside the area from Brazil, Jordan Jolly with a spot kick and a Ben Pearce header sealed the win. Three NECI players already cautioned got a second yellow after the final whistle.
