March Town United bounce back with win and reserves make it seven games unbeaten under chairman White to stay top after 4-3 victory

Ridgeons First Division: Gorleston 2 March Town United 3

March Town United bounced back from last weekend’s 6-1 drubbing at the GER to record their third away league victory on the bounce with a 3-2 win at Gorleston.

A double from Adam Cornell and a goal from Juliano Gomes De Menezes clinched a much-needed three points for the inconsistent Hares.

The reserves however are not struggling for consistency under chairman Phil White and have now gone seven games unbeaten since he replaced Steve Wilson.

The league leaders battled back from going behind three times to beat Huntingdon RGE 4-3 at home.

March went 1-0 down, equalised through Greg Hoffham, but conceded again to go in 2-1 behind at the break.

Phil White’s son Lee made it two apiece and grabbed his second to make it 3-3 after the visitors had gone in front once again.
