With the first team not in action, it was time for Long Sutton Athletic's Reserves and A team to take centre stage in the Peterborough League cup competitions on Saturday afternoon.

In the Junior Cup, the Reserves recorded their first Group D victory to beat leaders Dreams 4-2, with Matthew Cawthorn, Jack Greenacre and Jack Semmence among the scorers.

On the other pitch, Long Sutton A stay top of Group A with four wins from four after beating bottom side Dreams Reserves 6-1, in a game which saw four different goalkeepers for the visitors.

The regular keeper was sent off midway through the first half for a foul which denied Kye Bunce a scoring opportunity, his replacement was then injured after fouling Glen Wells and conceding a penalty which was then saved by the third keeper, meaning the teams went in at half time goalless.

After the break Dreams took the lead, only for Sutton to equalise through a Will Kirkham penalty, after Bunce was again fouled. Davy Shepherd put the Magpies 2-1 up before the third keeper was then injured after a collision with Bunce.

By now, the visitors were tiring and Shepherd completed a hat-trick, with Bunce also netting twice.

The Dreams keeper was sent off for this challenge on Kye Bunce, who was through on goal.
