PINCHBECK UTD U/13s 8 THORNEY COLTS U/13 0: PINCHBECK were rampant as they notched up their third successive win of the season.

A great start saw them go 2-0 up inside four minutes, as Elliott Ramsden finished well from 12 yards, before Kieron Hamilton’s buried a header from Layton Maddison’s corner.

Brandin Mahon then headed home the third from Ramsden’s cross to put United well clear at half time.

Next to score was Ben Lawrence, who rifled home Jacko Withers’ pass into the top corner, then Jack Brown notched the fifth. Pinchbeck bagged two more from Maddison corners, as defender Lewis Harker steering home and Brown poached his second.

Jacko Withers then made it 8-0 with virtually the last kick of the game, firing in a half-volley from 18 yards.

STAMFORD U/16s 3

HOLBEACH UNITED U/16s 3

A GUTSY performance by Holbeach saw them finally put some points on the board.

After going behind early on, a well-worked move saw Gilbert add to his season’s tally to level.

An absolute screamer from Lachasseigne then put the Tigers in the lead, before a defensive error and a swerving free kick saw the home side go into the lead again.

But with 20 minutes to go, Dormor bundled in a whipped Phillips corner to earn a point.

HOLBEACH UNITED U/15s 7

WOODHALL SPA U/15s 4

IT was raining goals as Holbeach outgunned Woodhall Spa in a thriller.

The young Tigers were second best early on again and found themselves 2-0 after 20 minutes.

Holbeach soon came back into it though – and they delivered a devastating goal rush.

Connor Price helped himself to a first-half hat-trick and Louis Steadman bagged a brace with some neat finishing.

The second half was more of the same, with both teams dominating periods and creating chances.

Price added his fourth and Woodhall replied with two fine strikes before Luke Dobbie finished the game in style with a cracking run and strike from 25 yards.

NETHERTON U/13s 10

SPALDING UTD U/13s 2

FIRST Division Netherton ended Spalding’s hopes of cup glory.

The first half saw Spalding have several attempts that hit the woodwork – and despite playing with a lot of determination, they found themselves 4-0 down at half time.

Netherton scored three more before Spalding’s luck changed with a goal from Brandon Hall.

The young Tulips shipped two more before Keegan Waters scored their second.

There was still time for Netherton to get their tenth – making it a disappointing result against opposition from a higher division.

CAYTHORPE U/13s 1

HOLBEACH UNITED U/13s 2

PROMOTED Holbeach continued their incredible winning run with a hard-fought victory at Caythorpe.

After a nervy opening 20 minutes, the young Tigers settled well and grabbed the opener when Jamal Nyang raced clear to set up Brandon England, who rifled home a left-foot cracker.

Holbeach started the second half with a spring in their step and added number two when Stefan Gostic coolly lifted the ball over the keeper.

Holbeach didn’t have it all their own way, with George Senior having an outstanding game in central defence.

Caythorpe did pull one back, but the Tigers’ winning streak stretches on to 51 games.

Man of the match: Dan Mason and George Senior.

SPALDING UTD U/12s 2

NETHERTON EAGLES U/12s 1

SPALDING produced a fine display in a close Division One encounter.

The first half was even, with some solid defending from both teams – but it was the young Tulips who drew first blood when Charlie Ford hammering home from just inside the box.

It wasn’t long before Spalding doubled their lead, with Ford getting his and Spalding’s second of the game after racing onto a through ball and hammering into the corner.

Netherton pushed for goals after the break, but Spalding’s defence stood strong with some superb defending from Luke Williamson, Christian Fortune and Harry Burchnall.

They did concede in the dying seconds, but the Tulips held on.

OUNDLE U/12s 1

HOLBEACH UTD U12s 2

HOLBEACH struck late to earn a deserved win on their first trip to Oundle.

After an even start, the Holbeach defence of Harry Machin, Tom Coley and Ricky Holstead struggled to cope with the movement of the home side – and only two great saves from keeper Matthew Wilshire kept the scores level.

However, it was Holbeach who took the lead when a quick break by Ryan Cook saw Liam Sandall’s shot parried at full stretch by the home keeper, with Harry Collishaw on hand to open the scoring right on half-time.

Oundle took advantage of a defensive mix-up to level against the run of play in the second period, but the young Tigers weren’t done.

A Sandall strike from the corner of the box hit the post and rebounded off the unfortunate keeper before going into the goal for a deserved winner.

HOLBEACH UNITED U/11s 1

DEEPING RANGERS BLUE U/11s 6

DEADLY Deeping hit the young Tigers for six.

Holbeach started well in the first ten minutes, but found themselves 3-0 down at the half time interval.

In the second half Rangers carried on their good work to get two more goals on the scoresheet before young Tiger Matt Goodley found the back of the net. Deeping managed one more before the close.
