March Town 1sts extended their perfect start to the East League season last Saturday.

A rip-roaring start and a second-half turnaround enable the locals to claim a third successive Division Three North-West triumph when beating Cambridge City Vets 4-2.

Ryan Wright put March ahead after just 23 seconds, but they found themselves behind at half-time.

David Hodson levelled early in the second half from a short corner before turning provider for Ben Wright to put them back ahead. The same player then completed the scoring by extending March’s advantage.

March 2nds collected a first win of the Division Five North-West campaign when thrashing St Neots 4ths 5-1.

And the club’s ladies team made it a hat-trick of victories when also opening their East Women’s League account.

A fantastic team performance allowed them to see off Bury St Edmunds 3rds by a 5-0 scoreline in Division Three North-West.

A couple of carbon copy goals – created by Carly Stevenson and finished by Hana Howsam – put March in the driving seat and the same duo combined again as Howsam completed her hat-trick before the break.

Sarah Hussey added a fourth goal in the second half before Stevenson laid on a fifth for Charlotte Tweed.
