UCL Premier Division - Cogenhoe United 0 Holbeach United 3

Holbeach United won at Compton Park for the first time in 12 seasons to give their promotion prospects a big boost.

The Tigers now trail AFC Rushden & Diamonds by eight points with three games in hand.

An even first half saw both sides draw a blank.

Holbeach took a 51st-minute lead when Cooks keeper Olly Urquhart could only help Lee Beeson’s corner into his own net.

The Tigers went further ahead after 79 minutes when Beeson ran from the halfway line to slot home.

The outcome was sealed six minutes from full-time by Beeson’s spot-kick.

Holbeach face a tough test at home to fourth-placed Wisbech Town on Boxing Day.
