WHITTLESEY UNITED 0 MOULTON HARROX 3: HARROX made it ten points from 12 with a comfortable Peterborough and District Premier Division victory on Saturday.

They only had to wait four minutes for the opener, as a great pass from Tom Panton sent Ben Allen clear to score.

Whittlesey came back into the match with the lively Deane causing problems, but Jamie Cartlidge handed Harrox a two-goal cushion with a shot on the turn before the break.

Wind wreaked havoc in a second half which failed to live up to the opener, but man-of-the-match Jon Ball did add a third from the spot for Moulton late on.

HARTFORD SUN FC 2

PINCHBECK UNITED RES 0

PINCHBECK made a disappointing start in their opening Division Two clash of the season.

Before the game manager James Neaverson declared his ambition to target the title – but he’ll want an improvement on what he saw.

Jason Chilvers saw an early free kick cannon off the bar, but Hartford soon took command.

Luke Harrison cleared an effort off the line before Gavin Reynolds gave the hosts the lead. The lead doubled before half time when a long ball split Pinchbeck wide open and Saleem Jabbar was allowed a tap in.

Pinchbeck changed to a 3-5-2 for the second half and competed much better without scoring.

LONG SUTTON ATH RESERVES 1

SUTTON were much improved – but still suffered a loss.

After a positive start some hesitation in the Magpies allowed Sports to take the lead through Ashley Liddie.

The hosts then doubled their lead after the break when the unlucky Shaun Turner put through his own net. However, Sutton were better after the break and Warren Withers pulled one back.

But they levelled when a Thomas Rabiega free kick was met by the head of Dave Simpson.

Harriers edged the second period, but were kept out by Town stopper Brendan Taylor.

• TOWN’S Reserves got their first points of the season with a 3-0 win over FC Kirton. Josh Faulkner (2) and Mick Handford got the goals.

Veteran midfield ace Steve Barnes gave the Magpies the lead with a 25-yard strike, before a Paul Newcombe penalty made it 2-0. Cowbit battled back to make it 2-2, only for Joe Harrison to restore Sutton’s lead.

The hosts hit back again for 3-3, only for Ward to snatch a winner.

JUBILEE 7

FENWAY 1

SEVEN-UP Jubilee really kick-started their Division Two campaign.

The hosts settled the better in windy conditions and led 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from the impressive Danny Nichols and a Jason Chilvers penalty.

It was one-way traffic after the break, with Luke Chilvers and Jack Wycherley running the show.

Further goals were added by debutant Nathan Nichols and two each from Wycherley and Leigh Boekestyn before Fenway’s consolation.
