Nathan Rudman is the hottest shot around in the Peterborough Junior Alliance League at the moment.

The Northern Star Under 13s hitman made it a whopping 41 goals so far this season from just eight games with another huge haul on Sunday.

He was on target nine times as the unbeaten 9v9 Division title-chasers hammered Rippingale & Folkingham 19-0. That made it sevens wins from seven games as they closed the gap on table-toppers Deeping Claret to three points.

Cameron Long also had his shooting boots on against Rippingale. He netted five times with Jake Fitzgerald (2), Ashton Bennett-Williams, Phillip Creasey and Bradley Simpson also getting on the scoresheet.

March Rangers are the new leaders of Under 13 Division Two.

They beat Whittlesey 5-0 and take over in pole position from Spalding, who slipped up 4-2 at Blackstones.

Flyn Smith (2), Finley Clark (2) and Jordan Smith were the March marksmen while Shaun Archer (2), Ethan Ellison and Joshua Theodore were the Blackstones scorers.

In the Under 14 League Cup, favourites Deeping, the unbeaten Division One leaders, ripped Rippingale & Folkingham apart.

They romped to a 12-1 win with Alfie Ferguson leading the onslaught with five goals. Alexander Moroz netted three times, Harrison Dee twice and Kuda Burutsa and Kai Haggett-King once.

Ferguson now has 20 goals this season and Moroz 19.

Also going well in the Under 14 goalscoring stakes is Gunthorpe’s James Pam.

He has 21 to his name so far and claimed a couple in his side’s 7-1 win over Yaxley in the League Cup on Sunday. Segun Okunrinboye led the way with a hat-trick and there were also goals for Ciaran Millen and Charlie Bradley.

Malborne caused the only upset in the cup. The Division Two leaders knocked out Division One side Hampton Blue 3-2 with goals by Bobby Pridie (2) and Jake McLaughlin.

Elswehere in the cup there was an 11-goal thriller featuring Division Two sides Bourne and Voyager.

Voyager eventually nicked it 6-5 through strikes by James Ware (3), Callum English (2) and Cameron Guest. On target for Bourne were Jack Durno (3) and Kian Merrill (2).
