The local lads enjoyed a 5-2 derby triumph at struggling City of Ely 1sts to remain second in Division Three North-West.

Ben Wright opened the scoring with a reverse-stick strike before debutant Rob Sedgwick doubled the advantage, but March were stung by a fine response as their hosts roared back to level.

Dave Hodson coolly restored the March lead before half-time and further goals from him and Sedgwick in the second half sealed the points.

March Town 2nds’ saw their hopes of promotion in Division Five North-West dented by a 6-1 defeat at Wellingborough 1sts.
