Drove pip Whittlesey in Fen derby while last-gasp strike earns Chatteris Town vital draw

PARSON Drove took the bragging rights after beating Whittlesey United in a fierce Peterborough & District League Fen derby on Saturday.

Whittlesey entered the clash at Manor Field on the back of two wins but their visitors had been in impressive form themselves this season.

Indeed it was Drove who claimed the precious three points as goals from Anthony Hunt and James McManus fired them to a 2-1 victory over their Fen rivals.

The victory takes them up to fifth in the league, while Whittlesey sit four points behind them in seventh.

In a second Fen clash, Whittlesey Blue Star claimed a 1-1 draw with Leverington Sports - despite having two men sent off. Darren Edey netted Star’s crucial goal.
