FOOTBALL: It’s easy for Moulton and Pinchbeck

MOULTON HARROX 4 (Ball, Coddington, Allen, Gedney) OUNDLE TOWN 0: Moulton Harrox started their defence of the PFA cup with a comfortable win.

Right from the start Danny Cairns and Steve Mastin were causing problems down the Moulton left and on 23 minutes a typical Cairns cross found Jon Ball on the edge of the box, and a crisp finish made it 1-0.

Harrox should really have put the game to bed by half time but a combination of some inept finishing and good defending kept it tight.

Early in the second half centre-half Ashley Coddington rose high to head home a Mastin corner – his third goal of the season.

Ben Allen added a third goal on 70 minutes before man of the match Sean Gedney notched three minutes later.

Oundle hit the woodwork late on but Harrox keeper Stewart England had little to do for most of the game.

PINCHBECK UTD 4 (Wilson 2, Lovelace, Maltby) LEVERINGTON 1

PINCHBECK reeled off a fifth league win on the spin – with the warning that their best is yet to come.

Mark Lovelace and a brace from Luke Wilson had them comfortably ahead before half time.

One of Wilson’s goals finished a fantastic move down the right which culminated in an Oliver Maltby cross.

Pinchbeck were so comfortable that even when Tom Gosling knocked a penalty wide it hardly mattered. Paul Langford had been felled by the keeper.

Maltby made it 4-0 in the second half but Pinchbeck were denied a clean sheet after Matt Hocking slipped over at the back and Leverington capitalised.

Pinchbeck player/boss Ian Dunn said: “I’m pleased with how we’re going but we’ve got a lot more to offer.

“Some of our play in the first half was really good and the supporters were ‘wowing’ over it and saying we were a joy to watch.”

l Dunn is expecting a really exciting, open match when St Neots Town Reserves are the visitors on Saturday (3pm) and promised spectactors good stuff.
