CSKA warmed up nicely for their League Cup Final next weekend by beating Sutton St. James 9-1 at The Cage.

Adam Groves got the solitary consolation for Sutton but they were well and truly beaten by goals from Arron McKenna 4, Max Matless 2, Kai Ruff, Jordan Goult and Jack Newman.

Flitcham claimed their first double of the season, both 4-2 wins as well, over West Lynn.

Sam Garrod and Bonz Wilkinson scored for Wanderers but Sam Hewitt bagged a brace for Flitcham along with goals for Ollie Holmes and Shane Fisher.

England’s Hope after another fantastic season claimed the Division One title after Old White Bell forfeited their fixture at the weekend.


Heacham keep on winning as they power towards the title. This time it was a conservative but well-earned 2-0 home win over CSKA Reserves. Laurie Hibberd and Tom Williams were the scorers.

Elm remain top but have played more than Heacham, after a 2-1 win over CSKA Young Boys. Now CSKA might be forgiven as they might have one eye on next week’s final at Wisbech but they still proved more than a match for the table toppers. Claudio Cerqueria notched for Young Boys but Kensey Carter was the match winner with a brace.

Three Holes and March Saracens drew 1-1 with Dan Hempson scoring for Three Holes and Karl Anderson for March.

MacMillan powered to a 5-1 win over cup finalists Tydd St Mary. MacMillan had five different scorers, in the form of Johnny Hanwell, Gav Plume, Ian Bootie, Anthony Melton and Adam Key. Matt Wayman scored for Tydd.

Shouldham and William Burt shared eight goals in topsy turvey game the both sides could have won.

Burt raced into an early two-goal lead before Shouldham found themselves 3-2 up. Burt again drew level with an excellent counter attack before another defensive lapse allowed Shouldham to go 4-3 up. Burt showed their never-say-die spirit and scrambled home another equaliser with just a few minutes remaining.

Dan Edwards, Jamie Langley, Adam Warner and Mark Askham scored for Shouldham with Burt scoring through Kevin Scott 2, Tommy Sharp and Travis Mortimer.

This Sunday sees the first of our Finals Days, this one being staged at Wisbech Town FC. The League Cup Final between CSKA FC and England’s Hope FC will kick off at 10.30am with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Cup between CSKA Young Boys and Tydd St Mary kicking off at 1.30pm.
