Pinchbeck United under-14s came from behind to smash rivals Eye United 6-2 in an impressive performance.

The visitors started much the better and went ahead when Brad Catton netted on 12 minutes. The scores were level on 22 minutes though, when Layton Maddison’s cross was headed home by Tapi Shahwe.

Pinchbeck went ahead for the first time soon after, as Callum Davies slipped in Ben Lawrence to net a cool low finish.

Shahwe then showed that he was back to his best when he produced some great control before firing under the keeper to make it three just before the break.

Number four arrived soon after the break, with Clark making a lightning run down the right to find Josh Lawrence, who finished well.

It was five when Maddison went past three players and calmly laid the ball back for Josh Lawrence to grab his second, before Jack Brown pulled a consolation strike back for Eye.

Pinchbeck had the final word though, with Jacko Withers laying on a hat-trick strike for Josh Lawrence. The top team show stands them in good stead ahead of Sunday’s Lincs Cup clash in Grimsby.

• Spalding United Orange under-14s lost a 2-0 lead as a fine March comeback handed them a 4-2 reverse.

In what was their first game of 2014, Spalding went ahead through an excellent goal from George Levesley. A Bradley Froggatt cross was then deflected in for 2-0 to leave them in command.

Some fine saves from keeper Zack Brown kept out the leaders, but they pulled one back before half time – and then added three more after the break.
