Hares win but defeats for Fenmen and Saints
Promotion-seeking March Town were victorious this afternoon but there were basement battle defeats for both Wisbech Town and Wisbech St Mary.
In the Eastern Counties League division one north, March are sixth with games in hand after a 3-0 home win over Felixstowe and Walton Reserves. Craig Gillies and man of the match Jack Friend gave the Hares a 2-0 half time lead and a second from Friend after the break made it three.
In the same division, a Corey Kingston effort saw bottom of the table Wisbech St Mary lead relegation rivals Haverhill Borough 1-0 at the break. But a second half hat-trick from Tom Thulborn saw the visitors victorious over Alex Kaufman's men.
Struggling Wisbech were away at Sutton Coldfield in the Northern Premier League south east division and went down 2-0 in front of a crowd of 176. The Fenmen are now only one point off the bottom and lost Connor Green in the second half to what looks like a long-term injury. Isai Marselia scored both goals for the home side.
Wisbech: Wilson, Hart, Marshall, Kaye, Sanders, Spencer, Draper, Setchell, Nassanculo, Rogers, Green. Subs: Maddison, Whyatt, Shackleton.
March: Summers, Burrows, Gibson, Rawson, Emmington, Short, Edge, Rothery, Friend, Allen, Gillies. Subs: Jacklin, Saunders, B Warren, Romanos.
Wisbech St Mary: Smith, Hutton, Anderson, Chilton, Goult, Miller, Tansley (Goodale 82 mins), Tsaguim, Hempson (Wilmott 65), Richardson, Kingston.
In the Peterborough League premier division Parson Drove are up to sixth after a 4-1 home win against Peterborough Polonia. Long Sutton are ninth after a fantastic 3-2 home win against league leaders Uppingham Town but Tydd are still bottom, a Jason Bradshaw goal not enough to prevent a 3-1 home defeat against Holbeach United Reserves.
In division two, Leverington Sports Reserves went down 4-0 at home to Crowland Town Reserves, while in division three Tydd Reserves were beaten 5-0 at home to Premiair Reserves.
Goals from Paul Steel and Ryan Brazil were not enough for Parson Drove Reserves, who were knocked out of the Peterborough Junior Cup with a 3-2 defeat at Hampton. Leverington Sports A lost 6-1 to Peterborough City in the Peterborough Minor Cup.
