Deeping Blue moved to the head of the Under 12 Division One title race in some style on Sunday.

They walloped Riverside 12-0 to take over pole position from One Touch, who came unstuck for the third match running when losing 4-0 at home to Netherton.

Leading the list of scorers in the Riverside rout were Finlay Henderson and Shane Bointon with hat-tricks while Joseph Cox bagged a brace.

The other goals came from Harry Barsby, Alfie Fryett, Finley Nottingham and Bob Horne.

In Under 12 Division Two, runaway leaders Whittlesey Blue edged past Crowland 2-1 through a Lewis Leesons double to preserve their nine-point advantage over Glinton and Northborough Amber.

Glinton beat Malborne 5-0 courtesy of goals by Colin Greenhow, Isaac Woodfield-Mills, Sidney O’Connell, Tom Steward and Joseph Sandel.

There were plenty of goals in Under 12 Division Four with the top two - Spalding Orange and Tydd St Mary - leading the way.

Spalding beat FC Peterborough 7-0 with Stephen Hammond claiming two, while Tydd trounced Blackstones 9-1 with Freddie May scoring four times and Shane O’Reilly twice.

Hampton Blue narrowed the gap on Under 13 Division One pacesetters Alconbury to three points when cruising home 7-0 against Deeping Blue. Harry McLaughlin and Scott Gray both scored two apiece.

The biggest win in the Under 13 age group on Sunday came from Wisbech St Mary. They crushed Division One rivals Hampton Royal 12-1 with Tristan Jones on target four times and Bradley Foxwell firing a treble.

Not far behind in the goalscoring stakes were Division Four leaders Park Farm Black.

They made it a magnificent seven wins out of seven by beating Parkside 11-1.

Substitute Daniel Sot was the star of the show with four goals and there was a hat-trick for Ben Lane.

It wasn’t such a good day for Park Farm Red in Under 13 Division Three. They lost for the first time this season when slipping up 2-1 at Whittlesey for whom Brandon Furneaux and Kaish Joseph found the back of the net.
