SCAFFOLDING SUNDAY LEAGUE By Rob Bunting
This is a divisional knock out cup for Division Two and Three teams, and provides those teams with a great opportunity to reach a final.
Tydd St Mary registered their first win of the season with a close 2-1 win at Elm to reach the quarter-final, thanks to Ryan Andrews and Dan Ewing, Steve Rogers notching Elm’s consolation.
CR Eastern eased into the quarters with a 7-1 win away at a lacklustre Fleet. Marcus Gilbertson did get Fleet going, but it was never enough as Curtis Morais 2, Travis Toll 2, Ben Swales, Daniel Kerry and Michael Docherty all sent Eastern roaring through.
Wisbech Social, having not won a game last year, enjoyed an 8-2 win at Horsepigs Reserves. Kenzie Carter, Jamie Cobbin and Ian Booty, along with five for Richard Hunt, saw Social through. Dan Coates and Matt Weeds netted for Horsepigs Reserves.
Sutton kept up their 100 per cent season with a 4-1 win over Farmers Arms. Lee Jackson, Alan Burch and Ash Godfrey 2 took Sutton through, in a competition where they are one of the favourites to win it.
Tilney Green Lions appear to be back on track with another win, this time it was March Saracens who fell by the Tilney sword. Ash Taylor bagged a brace for Saracens, but Jason Chilton went one better for Tilney, with Dom Richmond nabbing the other.
Having been beaten 8-0 by them last week in the league, Watlington put up a much better fight this time around, narrowly losing 3-2 to Dersingham Social.
Dan Harpley and Lewis Haynes got Watlington dreaming of a shock win, but it wasn’t to be as Anton Ely, Luke Biles and Isaac Large sent Dersy through.
West Lynn scraped past a resilient Heacham Reserves 2-1, courtesy of Lawrence Thetford and Andy Huarns goals. Tom Hawkins scored for Heacham.
The last remaining League Cup First Round was played at River Lane as Burt hosted CSKA Emneth.
CSKA ran out 4-2 winners to advance to the Second Round. Lee Dix and Sam Hewitt scored for Burt with Dave Abbott notching a brace for CSKA. Adam Drew and Scott Wylie scored the others for CSKA.
The top two clashed and England’s Hope maintained top spot and a 100 per cent record after edging past FANG 3-2 at River Lane.
Jo Malby and Jamie Buhlemann scored for the men in pink, but the Whyborns, Joe and Sam, twice, kept Hope at the top of the table.
Horsepigs were rampant at Long Sutton, recording an emphatic 8-1 away win. Paul Newcombe scored for Sutton, but it was nowhere near enough as Damien Teal 3, John Murphy 2, Paul Richardson, Karl Tansley and Matty Wright wrapped up the points.
