In NMC 1B, basement side Chatteris Town Reserves were thrashed 5-0 by Milton Reserves.

But a double from Mark Heading and goals from Josh Dodman, Dan Martell and Jack Rudkin saw Manea United beat Huntingdon United 5-2.

In the Peterborough and District League, Leverington Sports lost 3-2 to Netherton United.

But Whittlesey United have preogressed in the PFA Senior CUP with a 4-1 win over Uppingham Town.

In the Cambs Invitation Cup, March Town Ladies beat Milton 4-2 after extra time.

The Hares led 1-0 at half time through an excellent Emma Searle goal but Milton equalised.

Searle put March back in front but the stubborn visitors once again responded to send the tie into additional time.

In extra time, the Milton keeper saved well from an Emma Frost penalty, but an own goal and Anna Hatcher’s first of the season sealed a hard-fought win.
