Sisson double for Long Sutton sinks City
LSHC Men 4,
Norwich City 2
Sutton took three vital points on Saturday in this East Men’s League Prem B fixture.

Norwich equalised and took the lead. Just before half-time Sisson produced another lovely finish to level things up.
Sutton came alive in the second half.
Fyson’s drag flick was stopped on the line by a foot and he sublimely slotted home the resulting penalty flick.
Cook was rewarded for his efforts with a goal.
Cambridge South 3,
LSHC Men’s 2nd 4
Sutton beat a team that hasn’t lost a home game all season despite going behind three times.

LSHC Ladies 2,
Sutton Ladies 1sts came out on top of their local rivals, who had won 17 league outings consecutively.
