LOCAL FOOTBALL: On-song Harrox stay on title trail

Have your say

Moulton Harrox’s relentless pursuit of the Peterborough and District League Premier Division title continued with a 6-1 win at Riverside on Saturday.

Martin Gordon netted twice for third-placed Harrox, with Jonny Clay, Dan Woods, Andy Law and Billy King also netting.

The victory leaves treble-chasing Moulton nine points behind leaders Peterborough Sports having played six games less. One of those games in hand is at Ramsey Town tonight (7.30pm).

Meanwhile, Crowland Town jumped up to a season high of fourth place with a 3-1 win over Ramsey at Snowden Field.

Luke Elsom (2) and sub Simkus Virginijus netted for ten-man Crowland, who had Michael Smith sent off.

It was another day to forget for defending champions Pinchbeck United, though.

They went down 5-2 at Leverington Sports, Mark Lovelace and Jake Portas getting their goals.

Also on the receiving end of a defeat were Deeping Rangers Reserves. Goals from Anthony Graves and Steve Colangelo couldn’t stop them going down 3-2 at Parson Drove.

It was another good day for Long Sutton Athletic in Division One however, as they closed the gap on leaders King’s Lynn Town Reserves to just six points.

The Magpies, who have two games in hand on the Linnets and visit them tonight (7.30pm), won 2-1 at Langtoft United thanks to goals from Jake Clitheroe and James Ward.
