Moulton Harrox's scheduled home match with Stamford Lions was postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak in the visitors' squad.

Harrox's reserve side remain top of Division One after a 2-2 away draw at third-placed Tydd.

Martin Sandall and John Ball netted for Harrox with Ed Pentney and Matt Eaton replying for Tydd.

Deeping Rangers Reserves' promising start to the season was hit after a 10-2 away defeat at Eunice Huntingdon.

Jacob Smithingale had brought the Clarets back into the contest at 2-1 midway through the first half before Eunice scored twice before the break.

The hosts then hit a further six goals in the second period with Rangers only managing to reply once.

Steve Jucikas hit a hat-trick as Deeping United made a winning start to their Peterborough League Division Three campaign on Saturday.

Teenager Sam Miller also marked his first team debut with a goal while experienced striker Scott Spearkink was on target in the 5-0 home win over Park Farm Pumas.

The opening league win followed up last week's Lincolnshire Junior Cup victory away at Spilsby Town.

Joint boss Ian Abbott said: "It was a good start. We scored five goals, kept a clean sheet and have put three points on the table."

United had to struggled to find their rhythm in the opening exchanges but did hit the front after 10 minutes.

Nathan Smith - back in the United ranks after a midweek outing for Blackstones - produced some sterling work down the right-hand side and his cross was converted at close range by Spearink.

United continued to create the better chances but didn't double their lead until five minutes before half-time when Jucikas converted after racing clear to finish off a through ball from Matty Gunns.

Youngster Miller was introduced at the interval as United made a couple of changes and took just three minutes to make an impact.

The pacey 17-year-old was in the right place at the right time to score United's third goal before Jucikas struck twice in as many minutes to seal the win.

Smith drove past several challenges with his pace and strength to break clear before unselfishly squaring for Jucikas to tap home.

The duo then combined again for Jucikas to complete his hat-trick midway through the second half.

United could have added to their tally when Jucikas was brought down by Sam Skinner who, as the last man, was red-carded but Ben Catanach hit the woodwork with the resultant penalty.

The hosts also had a couple of goals disallowed for offside while United goalkeeper Nick Merryweather ensured his side kept a clean sheet at the other end with three fantastic saves when called into action.

Long Sutton A were unable to raise a side for their trip to Warboys Reserves in Division Four where Sutton Bridge continue to set the pace.

They recorded a fourth successive victory after beating Orton Rangers 4-1 courtesy of goals from Ben English, Ben Partridge and Mark Garner.
