Round-up of the action in the Peterborough Senior Cup




Moulton Harrox secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Peterborough Senior Cup without kicking a ball on Saturday.

Their scheduled opponents – Peterborough Northern Star Reserves – in the Group A clash withdrew from the Peterborough League competition late last week.

Their results have been expunged from the group table which leaves unbeaten Harrox in an unassailable position to finish in the top two with just one match remaining.

They travel to FC Peterborough for their group finale on Saturday, May 22, needing to avoid an unlikely defeat by seven goals against their Division One hosts to secure top spot.

Harrox – as likely group winners – will then face Premier Division rivals Eye United in their quarter-final clash.

Six of the seven sides in Group C are all still in contention to progress after the latest round of close contests on Saturday.

Crowland currently hold pole position but they are likely to be leapfrogged by Peterborough North End Sports when they are awarded the three points after King’s Cliffe were unable to field a side for their match on Saturday.

Long Sutton are up to third place after they staged a cracking comeback to defeat Crowland on Saturday in their meeting at London Road.

Crowland held a two-goal lead after efforts from Danny Firth and Harry Grigas until the Magpies hit back to pinch the points following goals from Callum Madigan, Matt Eaton and Ryan Alexander.

Pinchbeck United Reserves are still seeking their first victory in Group D after a 6-0 away defeat at unbeaten Thorpe Wood Rangers while Crowland Town Reserves suffered a heavy 10-0 home reversal against Leverington Sports.

Tydd were triumphant on their travels as they returned from Rippingale and Folkingham victorious after a 3-2 victory.

Bradley Easey netted twice and Jamie Mills was also on target for Tydd, who must win their final two games and hope that one of Thorpe Wood Rangers and Uppingham Town lose both theirs to qualify.
