Wisbech won the big local derby in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division last night (August 11).

The Fenmen made it six points out of six against Peterborough Northern Star at Chestnut Avenue and are joint top of the table with Boston and Yaxley.

Star took a second minute lead through Dan Bucciero but there was a stunning response from Wisbech as they levelled through Billy Smith on seven minutes and then took the lead a minute later with a Charley Sanders goal.

Stuart Cobb’s 33rd minute goal gave Wisbech breathing space at the break.

Bucciero’s second goal of the night three minutes before the hour opened the game up again but Declan Rogers wrapped up the Wisbech victory with the final goal on 74 minutes.

Yaxley picked up their second win of the season by taking the honours 2-1 at Eynesbury Rovers with a Dan Cotton double on 68 and 70 minutes.

There were goals galore at Outgang Road as Deeping Rangers picked up their first win of the season.

They smashed inexperienced Huntingdon 7-2 with strikes by Scott Coupland, Scott Mooney (3), Jezz Goldson-Williams (2) and Jordan Avis.

Jack Jefferson and Jordan Brickett netted for Huntingdon.

In Division One, Peterborough Sports continued their winning start with a 2-1 home success against Blackstones but found the visitors far from an easy touch.

Jones De Sousa gave Stones a 22nd minute advantage, which they held until three minutes before the break when Avelino Vieira’s fourth goal of the season put Sports on level terms.

The decisive goal arrived four minutes into the second half, David Cobb the home matchwinner.

Bourne started with a 3-0 win at home to Buckingham. Tyler Sculthorpe (2) and Joe Moore-Papworth were the Bourne players on target.
