LOCAL FOOTBALL: Four-some Ben on fire in one-sided derby
PETERBOROUGH & DISTRICT LEAGUE: HOLBEACH UNITED A 7 PINCHBECK UNITED A 0 – BEN Wiggings buried four goals as Holbeach eased to a PFA Minor Cup win at Carter’s Park on Saturday.
Danny Hunt set up the first two goals, crossing for Wiggins and Matt Brady to score. Hunt then assisted Gary Chappell, who made no mistake with the third.
Goals continued to flow as good midfield play from Tom Coote, Jamie Forman, Brady and Hunt put Wiggins in to get his second, before Coote supplied Wiggins, who volleyed home his hat-trick strike.
After the break Wiggins nodded in his fourth – meaning he’d scored with his left, right and head – and Hunt got his name on the scoresheet after laying on three goals.
LONG SUTTON ATH 4
FARCET UTD 1
SUTTON climbed up to fourth in Division One with a hard-fought win on Saturday.
Two goals from Jake Clitheroe and one from Ryan Lennon put the hosts 3-0 up at the break. Lennon then grabbed his second of the game to make it four on the hour.
Sutton’s defence had stood strong all game and were disappointed when Farcet scored direct from a free kick with the very last kick of the game.
COATES ATH RES 4
LONG SUTTON ATH RES 5
AN incredible comeback saw Jamie Taylor seal a fantastic victory for Sutton.
The Magpies started the Division Three tussle well and took the lead through Steven Robinson – but soon found themselves 2-1 down within minutes.
A fine turn and lob from Taylor put Sutton back on level terms, but 15 minutes before the end of the first half they switched off and conceded two more.
But through hard work and determination, Sutton fought back with another strike from Robinson and a further effort from Mark Garner got them back on level terms.
To complete a remarkable turnaround, Taylor’s cracker ten minutes from time sealed the points.
OAKHAM TOWN RES 1
PINCHBECK UTD RES 2
PINCHBECK held out against an experienced Oakham side to record their first win of the season and progress into the second round of the PFA Challenge Cup.
Pinchbeck took control midway through the first half when Wheeler ran through to blast home his second goal in two games. Two minutes later the hard-working Stanberry recorded his first goal for the club when his shot went in off the post.
Matt Hempsall saw a penalty saved as Pinchbeck looked to seal the victory, meaning they had a nervy finish when stand-in keeper Jamie Cartlidge was beaten late on.
