March Town continued their Thurlow Nunn League First Division North rise with a third successive league win last Saturday.

Brett Whaley’s men triumphed 3-1 at AFC Sudbury Reserves thanks to a double-strike from Toby Allen and a Max Mattless goal after trailing at half-time.

“It was a really good second-half showing against a decent side,” said Whaley. “It was another case of us showing improvement despite not quite stringing together a full 90-minute performance.”

But Whaley was far from happy as his side’s winning run came to an end when they suffered a first-round exit from the Cambs Invitation Cup on Tuesday night.

They were beaten 2-0 by lower-level Linton Granta at the GER and Whaley admitted: “That was embarrassing. We were nowhere near the standards we’ve set lately and let ourselves down.

“Hopefully it serves as a wake-up call for us and we need to be better this weekend.”

March host fourth-placed Norwich CBS in a First Division North clash at the GER, 3pm.
