MARCH Town United halted their three-game losing streak by beating Brightlingsea Regent 2-1 on Saturday.

The Hares made the long trip to Essex without injured defenders Sam Darlow and Adam Sutton and unavailable keeper Marc Hipwell - and they were behind after just two minutes.

But a spirited second-half performance gave Paul Crosbie’s side a much-needed win - with an own goal and a late Robbie Masters header securing three precious points.

Crosbie admitted he was relieved to get the result, which puts March seventh in the Thurlow Nunn First Division.

“It’s good to get back to winning ways,” he said.

“We were disappointing in the first half but it was a superb effort after the break. It made the trip back home go much quicker!”

The Hares host fourth-placed Braintree Town Reserves on Saturday.
