Spalding Inter Service Trophy: TYDD ST MARY 5 OLD DONS 8 – AN incredible 13 goals were scored as the Saints pushed Dons all the way in this derby thriller.

Boston Division Two side Tydd had most of the early play and were 2-0 up after 14 minutes to a pair of Steve Cousins penalties.

But Boston Premier Division outfit Dons battled back to make it 2-2 at half time. A controversial Dons penalty, given against Shaun Murfitt, then sparked a scoring spree that put the away side 7-2 up.

However, Cousins rattled home the perfect free kick and Mark Garner grabbed a goal to get Tydd back in the mix, before Dons killed them off with their eighth.

Garner’s second for the Saints completed a cracking clash.

SPIRITED Gedney Hill made the Magpies work hard for their win.

Man-of-the-match Matty Radeloff bagged the opener for Sutton, before the same player doubled the advantage in the second period.

Stu Easey completed the scoring late on to secure Sutton’s passage.

PUNCHBOWL 1

LONG SUTTON SUNDAY 4

SUTTON finally got the better of Division One rivals Punchbowl in their third meeting of the season.

After a pair of 1-1 draws between the two, this was always going to be tight – and it took a superb volley from Joe Harrison to put Sutton ahead at the interval.

Another Harrison effort put the away side 2-0 up, only for Gedney to pull one back for Punchbowl.

The hosts then missed a penalty which would have made it 2-2, but Sutton went onto score two more goals from Kevin Goude and Paul Newcombe to seal the points.

JUBILEE 5

HOLE IN THE WALL 2

FIVE-STAR Jubilee played some cracking football from the off.

They always looked dangerous and took the lead in this Division Two clash through a super Jason Chilvers effort.

Luke Chilvers soon added a second, but Hole came storming back with two quick-fire goals and forced Jez Hudson into fine stops before the break. Jubilee took control in the second half though and re-took the lead courtesy of Jack Wycherley’s 35-yard piledriver.

With Wycherley a constant thorn in Hole’s side, Luke Chilvers added two more to wrap up his hat-trick.

FARCET UTD 3

PINCHBECK UTD RES 4

PINCHBECK picked up their first win of the season under the caretaker management of Pete Roberts following the resignation of James Neaverson.

Ash Wilson was on hand to thump the ball into the roof of the net for their opener, as Farcet struggled to deal with tight passing and quick movement.

It was 2-0 when Dan Thornalley half-volleyed home from a corner – and that’s how it stayed at the break. John Scott pulled one back on the hour, but an instant reply from the pacy Wilson restored Pinchbeck’s cushion.

Farcet’s Rian Inns pulled another goal back via a one-on-one, before Sam Atkinson’s run and cross was turned in by a home defender.

Although Tom Wales pulled one back with five to go, Pinchbeck held on for a maiden win.
