Deeping Rangers staged a remarkable comeback to win their United Counties Premier Division game 4-3 at Cogenhoe today (September 29).

Deeping were 3-1 down with 10 minutes to play. Scott Mooney then missed a spot-kick, but atoned that for that with two goals in the final four minutes either side of a fine Dan Schiavi strike. It was Schiavi’s final appearance for the club as he is moving to the United States.

Luke Andersen had scored Deeping’s goal in the first-half. Deeping are sixth in the table, but behind local rivals Holbeach United (third) and Pinchbeck United (second) who also secured impressive victories.

Jack Smith claimed a hat-trick and Josh Ford also scored as Holbeach hammered Leicester Nirvana 4-0 at Carter’s Park, while Lee Beeson’s goal was enough to see Pinchbeck home at On Chenecks.

Pinchbeck, who won Divison One by a street last season, have now travelled a full calendar year without losing a single league game - a run of 35 matches.

Peterborough Northern Star’s impressive campaign continued with a 2-0 win at Kirby Muxloe thanks to goals from Mark Cox and Christian Le. Star are up to seventh after three Premier Division wins in a row.

In Division One Bourne bounced back from conceding 17 goals in two losses in four days by battling to a 3-2 win at Irchester, but Huntingdon were crushed 12-1 at Anstey Nomads. Scott Waumsley (2) and Scott Dore scored for Bourne.

March secured back-to-back wins in Division One of the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League with an impressive 3-1 success at Lakenheath. Craig Gilles, Gav Cooke and Max Mattless scored the goals.
