Deeping Rangers left it late before getting their United Counties Premier Division campaign back on track yesterday (October 7).

The 90 minutes were up when Scott Mooney claimed the only goal of the game at ON Chenecks as Michael Goode’s men bounced back from a disappointing midweek defeat.

Deeping are now seventh, one place above Holbeach United who thumped Kirby Muxloe 4-0 at Carter’s Park. Lewis Leckie bagged a hat-trick in this game with Mitch Griffiths also on target.

Wisbech recovered from a goal down to win 3-1 at Wellingborough Town thanks to goals from Josh Ford (2) and Billy Smith.

Peterborough Northern Star, who offered free admission to senior citizens as part of a ‘non-league day’ initiative saw their crowd double year-on-year for the visit of Rothwell Corinthians.

The relatively bumper crowd of 61 saw a James Hill-Seekings goal secure a point for the city side.

Former Posh player Lee Clarke turned out for Stones yesterday. He’s expected to join Stamford AFC this week.

Bourne came back from 3-1 down to draw 4-4 at Lutterworth Town. Eddie McDonald (2), Jezz Goldson-Williams and Richard Nelson scored the goals.

March Town United drew 1-1 at home to Swaffham in Eastern Counties Division One with Casey Logan on target.
