March Town United cruise past Downham Town to net second win in four days

A RESURGENT March Town United fired themselves back up to seventh in the Ridgeons First Division with two wins in a week.

The Hares’ season had been showing signs of falling apart with a catastrophic list of injuries and a disappointing run of results.

But after a miserable 4-0 defeat to Whitton United two weeks ago, March bounced back by netting two vital wins in the space of four days.

Lee Day’s bullet-header put his team on course for a 3-1 victory over Ipswich Wanderers at the GER on Saturday - with Simon Bates and Ash Brand also grabbing goals.

And things got even better for the Hares last night, when Denny Escorcio and the in-form Stu Anderson found the net in a 2-1 triumph at Downham Town - a game which also saw new signing Danny Rasberry make his full debut.

March host Swaffham Town at the GER on Saturday.

• The club are holding a race night at The Cock on Saturday. Entry is free and race cards cost �1, with the first race at 8pm. All money raised will go to the club.
