They overtook City of Peterborough IV, who were held 0-0 by Cambridge South.

March showed no mercy against Cambridge City IV, winning 9-0 against a side who had beaten them earlier this season.

Jody Betts put March ahead - he collected the ball from outside the D and took it past a couple of players then smashed it into the goal.

Stuart Mills fired in a second, Betts deflected home a third and Dan Shirley smashed home before half time.

March’s domination continued after the break - Betts added a second half hat-trick to take his tally to five goals and Matt Wallis bagged a brace.

Wisbech II came out on the wrong side of an eight goal thriller with Cambridge University III at Harecroft Road.

There was also disappointment for Wisbech ladies in Division 1N, who lost 2-0 at St Ives.

In Premier B, Long Sutton lost 5-2 to Ipswich after a horror start to the match - they gifted Ipswich three goals in 15 minutes.

Danny Sisson gave Sutton hope before half-time with a trademark reverse stick thunderbolt into the top corner.

After the break, Joshua Fyson reduced the deficit to one goal but Ipswich struck twice to pick up the three points.

A Ben Shore hat-trick and a Gary Wiles strike helped Long Sutton men’s II beat Ely City II 4-0.

Long Sutton ladies were once again made to rue missed chances as they were held 1-1 by Alford, their sixth draw in 13 games this season.

On 25 minutes, Tania White broke on the edge of the Alford D and passed to Hannah Greenacre who lifted the ball neatly over the sprawling keeper to put them ahead.

But, despite numerous chances, Long Sutton failed to kill off the visitors and they were punished with an equaliser.

Millie Lamming’s goal could not prevent the ladies II from losing 5-1 to Skegness.
