Pinchbeck Predators U10 1, Spalding U10 0

Pinchbeck started brightly and took the lead when Wilkinson ran on to a pass and calmly sidefooted home after 12 minutes.

After the break Spalding applied pressure but the home side defended well.

On chances Pinchbeck deserved the win, but this was a well-contested match with both sides playing excellent football.

Benwick U9 2,

Holbeach UTd U9 5

After just two minutes Flynn Slater ran through the defence and scored a belter to put Holbeach up 1-0.

Benwick pulled one back but on the stroke of half time, Niall Wilson slotted home to make it 2-1 to Holbeach.

On 27 minutes, an own goal made it 2-2 and then Benwick pressed and forced Freddie Wheatley to make many saves before Holbeach made it 3-2 with a goal from striker Thomas Hoyle after a solo run.

Slater then blasted in his second before substitute Brandon Hoole hit a cheeky shot through the crowd which got Holbeach a fifth and made it two wins out of two.

Wisbech St Mary U11 5,

Holbeach Utd U11 2

The young Tigers found themselves 1-0 down within two minutes and then missed chances to equalise before the Saints broke twice to make it 3-0.

On the stroke of half-time Tristan Jones pulled a goal back, but it was the home side who scored next to make it 4-1.

Tyler McKendrick whipped in a great corner which James Clark converted at the second attempt for Tigers’ second goal, but in the final stages Saints wrapped up the victory.

One Touch u12 4

Holbeach utd u 1

One Touch effectively won this match with three early goals and that’s the way it stayed at the break.

Tigers came into it in the second half but the home side grabbed a fourth before William Taylor ran down the right wing and fired home a consolation. Shots from Cameron Oko and Matt Goodley also went close.

Pinchbeck Juniors u14 5,

Netherton Falcons U14 1

Pinchbeck, who stay top of the table with this win, took the lead from a far post shot into the roof of the net by Layton Maddison after a good cross from Ben Lawrence.

Netherton did equalise before the break, but a far post header from Connor Goodfellow was handled on the line and Layton Maddison scored from the penalty spot to make it 2-1.

The third quickly followed when a superb cross from Callum Clark was headed home by Jacko Withers.

Pinchbeck’s fourth was an individual effort by Callum Davis, who beat several players before firing a low shot into the corner of the net.

The fifth came from Ben Lawrence, who fired in from 20 yards after good work from Davis, McKue and Goodfellow.

Pinchbeck United u15 3, Sawtry Colts u15 5

Sawtry got the scoring under way in the fourth minute but Pinchbeck drew level through Jonny Lockie after 17 minutes.

Lockie got a second after 22 minutes and United led 2-1 at the break.

The second half was only eight minutes old when Sawtry drew level, and they then scored twice more in quick succession to lead 4-2.

Pinchbeck’s pressing was rewarded when a penalty was given for handball after 72 minutes and Elliott Lea converted.

However, as they pushed for an equaliser, they were hit for a fifth on the break and their unbeaten run this season was over.

Leverington u16 0,

Holbeach u16 3

Holbeach continued their fine start to the season, though this game was much closer than the score suggests.

They took the lead on 15 minutes, Dexter Facey swinging in a dangerous free kick which found Robbie Thurston.

Only some fantastic work by man of the match Adam Groves in the Holbeach goal kept the lead at the break though.

The second half came to life on the hour mark when Jordan Keeble rounded the keeper and slotted home the second.

Seconds later Ben Gibbons scored his third goal in as many games and wrap up the points for Holbeach.
