LOANEE Toby Ogbonna came off the bench to score on his debut as a rejuvenated March Town United netted their first league win since September.

The Hares produced an impressive team performance to see off Debenham LC 2-0 at the GER today.

After a goalless first half, in-form Danny Emmington put March ahead with a 25-yard free kick.

Paul Crosbie’s side cranked up the pressure with Ash Brand hitting the bar and Robbie Masters failing to convert two good chances.

But the Hares finally made the game safe in the 86th minute as substitute Ogbonna, on loan from Wisbech Town, marked his debut with a tap-in.

Relieved boss Crosbie said: “We played very well and it was a well-deserved win.

“We had numerous efforts and our goalkeeper wasn’t tested at all in the second half.”

The win lifts the Hares up to 12th in the Thurlow Nunn First Division.
