Five-star Chatteris Town kept up the pressure on Outwell Swifts in Kershaw Senior A with a 5-1 win over Soham Town Rangers Reserves.

Craig Gillies (2), Scott Callaghan, Gary Smith and Josh Brittin scored as the Lilies surged into second.

However, there is no stopping Outwell at the moment - Luke Plumb hit a hat-trick, with Ben Longmuir also on target, as they made it six wins from six with a 4-0 triumph over Royston Town A.

Chatteris manager Ashley Taylor said: “Very happy with a convincing result. We needed a reaction after dropping two points last week and you could see the determination in the team to get back to winning ways.

“Our attacking play and ball retention was superb and i can see we are improving as a team all the time.

“We go away to Fulbourn this Saturday full of confidence and we need to show that we can come away from home against a tough team and get 3 points. Our character this Saturday will be tested.”

Wisbech St Mary suffered an early exit in the Knock Out Cup at the hands of Fowlmere. Simon Bates scored but they lost 5-1.
