Holbeach United moved into second place in the United Counties Premier Division after coming from behind to win 3-1 at local rivals Deeping Rangers last night (December 8).

Central defender Luke Hunnings headed Deeping in front 10 minutes before the break, but three goals in 11 minutes late on secured the points for ‘The Tigers’.

Josh Ford equalised in the 70th minute before super sub Tom Gosling fired Holbeach in front. Ford claimed his second goal minutes later. Ford also scored twice in a Holbeach win at the weekend (December 5).

Holbeach are now seven points behind leaders Leicester Nirvana and have one game in hand, Deeping remain fifth.

Leaders Peterborough Sports made it 16 wins in 16 matches in Division One after seeing off plucky Potton 2-0 at PSL. David Cobb shot the city side in front five minutes into the second-half with Olly Medwynter completing the scoring just past the hour mark.

Sports are 11 points clear at the top ahead of a clash with third-placed Stewart & Lloyds at PSL on Saturday (December 12).

Blackstones lost by three goals for the second game in a row as they went down 4-1 at Thrapston Town. Dan Evans was the man on target for Stones.

A goal early in the second-half from Jack Saunders was enough for Yaxley to pip Oakham 1-0 in the quarter-finals of the Hinchingbrooke Cup.

Wisbech are through to the semi-finals of the Cambs Invitation Cup after beating higher-level Soaham Town Rangers 3-1. The Fenman had to come from a goal down to win with goals from Adam Millson, Michael Frew and Chris Bacon.

It was a second big scalp in a handful of days for Wisbech who also knocked Leicester Nirvana out of the United Counties League Cup.

March Town United failed to join their neighbours in the last four though. They were thumped 5-1 at home by Fulbourn Institute. David Jackson’s superb goal for ‘The Hares’ proved a scant consolation.
