Spalding United Orange under-18s lost 5-1 at Yaxley Blue after taking the lead in the Peterborough and District Youth League Knockout Cup first round.

Both teams started well but Spalding broke the deadlock through Aiden Armstrong on 23 minutes.

The lead was short-lived as Yaxley soon pulled one back and then took hold of the game by scoring three more goals before half-time.

Spalding came out after the break 4-1 down and could not find a way through the Yaxley defence.

The home team added another goal to make it 5-1 at the final whistle.
