In the Premier Division, Connor Pilbeam scored both Deeping Rangers Reserves’ goals in a 2-1 win over newly-promoted AFC Stanground.

Leverington Sports defeated Crowland for whom Mark Hynes scored twice.

I really don’t know how we’ve lost that game.

Corban Oldham scored twice for Pinchbeck United in a 3-2 win over ICA Sports.

It took a 92nd-minute equaliser from Thorney’s Liam Merryweather to secure a 1-1 draw at home to Holbeach United Reserves.

In Division Two, missed chances came back to haunt The Tulips as Kings Cliffe came back from a goal down to take all three points against Spalding United Reserves in a 3-2 win.

Spalding broke the deadlock when Johnny Lockie guided the ball over the goalkeeper following good work from Lewis McKue and Matty Rose.

Matty Cannon, Jamie Cartlidge and Lockie all spurned good chances before the initiative began to swing in the direction of the hosts. Kings Cliffe went 3-1 in front after Spalding’s McKue had earlier missed from the penalty spot.

Sixteen-year-old Levi Butland stepped off the bench to pull a goal back.

Butland’s goal failed to spark a siege in the final few minutes and Cliffe held on to claim their fourth win of the season.

In Division Three, Tydd St Mary suffered a 2-0 home reverse to Stamford Lions Reserves.

The Stamford goalkeeper stood between Saints and an avalanche of goals.

An exquisite volley from Joe Harrison looked a goal every step of the way until the ’keeper put up an arm and swatted it over the bar.

A great run and shot from Mike Ocock was also turned away from the top corner.

Saints manager Carl Wilson said: “I really do not know how we have lost that game.

“We completely battered them for 70 minutes but just couldn’t get the break we needed.

“That’s a disappointing two weeks from our side and things can only get better.”
