Pinchbeck United under-15s continued their stellar start to the season with a 9-0 demolition of Thurlby Tigers under-15s.

Jordan Nicholls fired them ahead as early as the second minute, with Jonny Lockie (11) and Elliott Lea (27) also netting to make it 3-0 at half time.

The second half was only a minute old when Nicholls added his second – and his hat-trick goal followed in the 48th minute.

The scoring continued with Oliver Gunning (68), Tom Cripps (74 and 76 ) and Lea ( 77)all notching to continue Pinchbeck’s red-hot early-season form.

• A top team performance guided Pinchbeck United under-14s to an impressive 2-0 victory at much-fancied Eye under-14s.

Keeper George Lilley was forced to make a string of outstanding saves in the first period, including from a goal-mouth scramble just before the break.

After the interval Pinchbeck edged it from the whistle and a fine cross from Layton Maddison allowed Jack Withers to head home from close range to give the visitors a deserved lead.

Eye battled back and piled on the pressure, but a clumsy challenge on Connor Goodfellow in the area allowed Maddison to convert a penalty to make it 2-0 – and sent United to the top of the table.

• Five-star Pinchbeck Predators under-11s stormed to a 5-0 triumph at Netherton Phoenix under-11s.

A fine through ball by Jack Forster allowed Dylan Evans to drive home a low opener on 20 minutes.

Ethan Withers doubled the Pinchbeck lead with a well-taken strike just after the half-time break, before Ben Atkinson’s 40th minute effort from a corner was turned in at the far post by Jacob Drew.

Young winger Drew soon had his second with another clever finish, beating the keeper to his left.

Thomas Langford went within a whisker of number five when his free kick crashed back off the bar, but he didn’t have to wait long to complete the scoring with a fine finish from 15 yards.

• Newly-formed Pinchbeck Pumas under-11s romped to an 8-2 win at Netherton under-11s in their first Peterborough League Division Five match.

Kieran Twitchen capitalised on an error to fire the opener, before a solo effort from Lewis Smith doubled the Pumas lead.

It was 3-0 at the break, with Twitchen doubling his personal tally.

Although Netherton pulled one back after the interval, Rhys Davies and another Smith strike sent Pinchbeck 5-1 up.

Two more Twitchen strikes took his tally to four, while another Davies goal gave the scoreline an emphatic look – despite a late Netherton consolation.
