Greenacre said: “I’m proud with what we have done with Tydd and wish the lads all the very best for the rest of the season.”

The Saints started brightly and took the lead when Stu Easey volleyed home from the edge of the box.Mark Garner lobbed home a cheeky second from 25 yards, but they were unable to extend their lead further until the latter stages.

Super sub Steven Robinson struck twice before Easey clipped home a stunning free-kick off the underside of the bar.

PINCHBECK UTD RES 2

RAMSEY TOWN RES 1

TWO stunning goals helped Pinchbeck bounce back after their disappointing defeat last week to climb up to fourth in the Combination Division One table.

Darren Clarkson opening the scoring midway through the first half with a Wayne Rooney-esque overhead kick. Gary Piper crossed the ball from the right and Clarkson twisted his body mid-flight and showed deadly conviction to leave the keeper helpless.

Pinchbeck’s passing and possession was pleasing on the eye, but the points were under threat when Ramsey were awarded a penalty for hand ball on the hour.

Pinchbeck didn’t panic, but it took a moment of magic from Jason Chilvers with ten minutes to go to seal the points. He fired home superbly from 25 yards with his weaker foot.
