Cambridge City V 4 March III 3

AN inspired display of goalkeeping from man of the match Scott Bamford failed to prevent March falling to a narrow defeat at Cambridge.

James Fountain had fired the visitors two up in the first half but Cambridge hit back with two of their own strikes after the break.

Toby Odlin restored March’s lead only for the home side to steal the points with two late goals. David Woods made an impressive debut for the third team.
