Spalding I 6 March I 1

RELEGATED Spalding had too much for March as they rattled in six goals past the hapless visiting goalkeeper Scott Bamford.

The hosts showed they have the will to regain their place in the first division, scoring two goals in the first half and another four after the break.

March's only consolation came five minutes from time when Neil Liversedge smashed home a shot from a penalty corner but it was cold comfort.

March Town II 0 Ely City I 7

UNSETTLED March were no match for relegated Ely and only the heroics of the home goalkeeper prevented a heavier defeat.

Man of the match Matthew Lynn did his best to keep his side in the game but with little protection from the defence in front of him it was a thankless task.

A TOBY Sutton strike looked to have won it for the visitors but the home side grabbed a late equaliser to claim the draw.

Cambridge had March on the back foot for much of the first half and the visitors were indebted to man of the match Joe Bennett in goal for keeping the scores level.
