Outwell Swifts and Leverington Sports Reserves through to final of North Cambs Junior Cup





Goals from Ross Beart, George Melton, Brandon Hedge and sub Aidan-Jay Lewis saw Outwell Swifts beat March Town A in the semi-final of the North Cambs Junior Cup on Saturday.

The Hares play in Cambs County League 1B, with Swifts in 2B, but it was the home side who opened the scoring when Beart got on the end of a great pass from man of the match Kain Ward.

Hedge set up Melton for the second and Beart turned provider for the third, Hedge netting his 22nd of the season. The visitors pulled one back with a deflection but Lewis then came off the bench to score the fourth and his 17th of the campaign with a classy finish.
