Bridge continue march towards promotion

Despite Pinchbeck making the decision to return to United Counties League Premier Division action, the weather made it so their game was called off for the second week running.

It was a chance for the Knights to move away from second from bottom in the league as they looked to gain their first victory of the season as they were set to face league cup winners Rothwell Corinthians.

However, there was action for our teams in the Chromasport and District Football League, and the most notable victory in Division One came the way of Moulton Harrox Reserves as they thrashed local rivals Crowland Town Reserves 5-1, and put to bed their poor form prior to lockdown.

Chris Winstanley scored the sole goal for Crowland as they remained in 13th place in the league, whereas Harrox moved up to seventh.

NECI remained winless this season as they succumbed to a 6-1 loss to Oundle, whereas Rippingale and Folkingham got their fourth win of the season with a gritty 2-0 win over fourth placed Stamford Belvedere.

In Division Four Deeping United remained unbeaten this season and continued their march towards the top of the table after a thrilling 5-3 win against Whittlesey Athletic 'A' solidified their second spot.

Steve Juckias scored two goals as he became pushed clear as the top goalscorer in the division with 15 goals in his nine games so far, ahead of his team-mate Nathan Smith who has 12 goals.

Joining Juckias as the goalscorers in the game were Adam Richardson, Daryn Whiteman and Matthew Wilkin who all grabbed a goal apiece.

Finally in Division Five Sutton Bridge continued their stint at the top of the table with a nervy 3-2 win against Deeping United Reserves.

The division's top goalscorer Kurt Scott missed a penalty for Sutton Bridge at 1-1, and Deeping went 2-1 up after 58 minutes, but a Scott double in 87th and 89th minute sealed the victory to take him onto 18 goals for the season.

Joseph Sutton scored the other Bridge goal as he moved onto 11 for the campaign.

However, Holbeach Bank were defeated 3-1 at promotion-chasing Rippingale and Folkingham Reserves as they remained second from bottom.

A goal from substitute Jamie Stonebridge gave the away side a glimmer of hope at 2-1, but a goal soon after for the home side solidified the win, as the Bank crumbled to their eighth loss of the season.
