Holbeach United Under 16s are in seventh heaven after clinching the Peterborough and District League Division Three title.

They won 7-1 after a breathtaking start that saw senior first-team player Jordan Keeble score after just eight seconds.

Keeble latched onto a through ball from Ben Gibbons to put the Tigers ahead.

He had a glorious chance to double the lead in the fourth minute but saw his penalty saved.

It mattered little as two goals from Gibbons and a smart finish from Sam Young, following a Ryan Smith free-kick, gave the visitors a four-goal lead before the hosts pulled one back from the spot midway through the first half.

Holbeach stayed in control in the second half and Gibbons completed his hat-trick, again after being set up by Smith.

Young then grabbed a second, Keeble this time the provider, before Robbie Thurston completed the scoring with a close range header.

They won 5-1 after making a fine start, Nuno Pires fiing them ahead after just four minutes when meeting Jonny Lockie’s cross.

Ketton levelled midway though the first half but Pinchbeck struck four times after the break for a comfortable victory.

Jonny Lockie converted Will Bradley’s cross on 53 minutes and Pires then grabbed his second following a long throw by Alex Want.

Want was again the provider when Scott Chuter made it 4-1 in the 75th minute and Lockie had the final word when crashing home a 25-yard free-kick.

In Division Two, second-placed Holbeach were 5-0 victors at Bourne Town Juniors.

Under 14

Pinchbeck Under 14 are not taking it easy, despite winning the Division One title last week.

They continued their winning ways with a 3-0 victory over second-placed Phoenix at Glen Park.

Tapi Shahwe, Layton Maddison, Ben Lawrence and Josh Lawrence all went close before the opener came on 26 minutes.

Shahwe lobbed the keeper to give Pinchbeck the lead and they threatened to add to it before the break with Ben Lawrence making several great runs down the right.

The outstanding defence of Keiran Hamilton, Jack Brown and Harry Decamps bossed the back with a number of top quality headers and superb tackles to deny the visitors getting anywhere within the 18 yard box.

As Pinchbeck piled on the pressure the Phoenix keeper made a good save before Shahwe doubled the advantage when heading home Layton Maddison’s corner .

The third goal came just five minutes from time when substitute Callum Clark lashed home with a sweetly-struck volley.

Spalding Orange ran out 2-0 winners at Parkway Eagles Black to end their Division Three campaign in impressive style.

The first half was hard-fought but Spalding scored twice after the break for a deserved victory.

Ollie Green finished superbly to fire them ahead and the points were secure when Bradley Froggatt volleyed home.

It’s been a fine season for Spalding, who displayeda great attitude and team spirit all season. They currently lie fifth in the table but other teams still have matches to play.

Under 11

Young Dons Under 11s ran out 5-0 victors over Saxilby Sharks and it would have been more if not for a fine goalkeeping display.

Player-of-the-Match James Blackman opened the scoring from the edge of the area with a fine chip and he added a second with a shot that somehow slid under the keeper.

The one-way traffic continued, but a number of fine saves keep the Dons at bay until Kieran Greetham added a third before half-time.

The second half was a similar story with the Dons creating chance after chance, but they found the Saxilby keeper unbeatable until Brendan Flowers deceived him with a cross-cum-shot to make it four.

Late on Greetham grabbed his second to complete the scoring.
