Six goals as Wisbech St Mary thrash bottom side

Wisbech St Mary managed only their third win of a disappointing Cambs County League Premier Division season as they thrashed bottom club Bassingbourn 6-1 on Saturday.

A hat-trick from Callum Taylor, two from substitute Roman Kotovic and one from other sub Grant Rider saw Saints take all three points.

In Senior B, fourth-place March Town Reserves’ promotion hopes took a blow with a 4-2 home defeat against second-from-bottom side Fenstanton.

March were missing five players but lacked character in defeat. A poor mistake saw the visitors take the lead but they levelled through Liam Brady before switching off to allow Fenstanton to take a 2-1 half-time lead. A tap-in after the break made it 3-1 but a James Rose rocket into the top corner reduced the arrears before the away side scored again.

The mood after the match was a far cry from that of Wednesday evening when they beat home side Histon Reserves 5-3 on penalties after a 3-3 draw to progress to the final of the Percy Oldham Memorial Cup.

Kallum Jupp opened the scoring in a first half controlled by the visitors but Histon hit back to equalise, before Liam Monaghan made it 2-1 at the break. March conceded a penalty against the run of play to make it 2-2 but Monaghan’s second gave them the lead again before the home side scored a dramatic equaliser in stoppage time.

Penalties were scored by Sebastian Goldspink, Joshua Kirby, Harry Powley, Joshua Bryant and Sam Bedwell, with Ethan Peachey making a superb save to keep out Histon’s first spot kick. Bedwell and Monaghan were named joint players of the match.

Fifth place Benwick Athletic (Christchurch) had a disappointing 2-2 home draw with struggling Exning United in 1B, Harry Clarke and Dayne Moore with his 15th of the season getting Athletic’s goals.

In the same division eighth-place Chatteris Town Reserves beat lowly Witchford 96 Reserves 5-2.

Seveth-place Manea United drew 1-1 at home to 11th place Crusaders 2019 in 2B, Robbie Ryan scoring, while eighth place Outwell Swifts boosted their hopes of another promotion with a 2-0 home win over second-place The Eagle (Ely), Brandon Hedge with his 21st of the season and Stefan Anderson scoring.

Swifts could easily take the top spot if they won their games in hand, as could fifth-place Wisbech St Mary Reserves, although their game at Eaton Socon A was abandoned after 62 minutes for disciplinary reasons.

There was a wonderful result for Wisbech St Mary A in 4B as they won 2-1 at leaders Willingham Wolves, who went into the match with a 100% record. Goals from Martin Wright, his 16th of the season, and Billy Barnes put third-place Saints well and firmly in the title race.

Outwell Swifts Reserves remain bottom, however, after a 6-2 home thrashing against second-place Alconbury Weston, Samuel Spiteri-Nobbs and Callum Willoughby netting for Swifts.

Chatteris Town A drew 4-4 with Wisbech Town Acorns, Ryan Brocklehurst, Kevin Smith, Derren Singleton with his 19th of the season and sub Arpad Vajda scoring for Acorns. Strugglers Manea United Reserves lost 3-0 at Stretham Reserves.

Leverington Sports’ Peterborough League Premier Division hopes were dented as they were held 2-2 at home to bottom side Ramsey Town, but in Division One, Chatteris Town remain third after a 3-0 win at bottom side Netherton United Reserves.

It was also a good day for Long Sutton Athletic, who beat Eunice Huntingdon FC 4-0, Arron Pike, Jamal Nyang, Jack Greenacre and Calvin Bird scoring. In Division Two, Sutton Bridge United won 4-2 against Stamford Lions, Liam Burton, Mark Garner, Ben Partridge and sub Tiarni Batchelor on target.

Also in Division Two, Tydd Reserves lost 2-1 at home to Park Farm Pumas Reserves and Leverington Sports Reserves won 3-2 at Whittlesey Athletic Development, with a Conor Bird brace and one from Adam Conyard, all after the break.

Long Sutton Athletic Reserves lost 1-0 at Uppingham Town Reserves in Division Three and Grady Goode, Harley Rust and sub Harry Barker netted as Leverington Sports A won 3-1 at Deeping United Development in Division Four.

Third-place Marshland Saints beat fourth-place Thorpe Village 4-0 in Anglian Combination Five North, Cal Rogers with two, Dan French and Brad Foxwell scoring, while their reserves lost 2-0 at KLSC A in Division Two of the North West Norfolk League.
