Spalding United climbed in to the top half of Evo Stik League Division One South with a deserved 2-0 success in a derby at Peterborough Sports last night (April 16).

Second half goals from Dan Brooks and Luke White secured a third straight away win for the Tulips and brought to an end Sports’ own run of three wins in a row.

A decent crowd of 186 watched the game at PSL. Sports are now a creditable 13th with three matches to go.

Deeping Rangers eased into the semi-finals of the Hinchingbrooke Cup with a smooth 3-0 win over Godmanchester Rovers at Outgang Road. Sam Hollis scored early in each half for Deeping, either side of a Scott Mooney goal.

Deeping did expect to play their semi-final at lower level Huntingdon Town tomorrow (April 18), but Huntingdon are already in action tonight in a league game at Potton United.

Tonight (April 17) Wisbech Town seek to bounce back from a big-game defeat at home to Premier Division title rivals Newport Pagnell last weekend by winning at Leicester Nirvana.

A win for the Fenman would definitely take them above current second-placed team Holbeach United, but Newport Pagnell are also in action at Rothwell Corinthians and three points for them would push them into second spot for sure.

Pinchbeck United, who clinched promotion from Division One on Saturday, will seal the title by picking up a point from a trip to Thrapston.

Moulton Harrox Reserves will win the Peterborouhgh League Division One title for the second season in a row if they collect a point from their home game with second-placed Tydd St Mary.

Spalding United are back in Evo Stik league action on Wednesday (April 18) at Carlton, but the highlight locally for that night is a battle between the Peterborough Premier Division’s top two Netherton United and Moulton Harrox at the Grange (8.10pm kick off).

Wednesday also sees the PFA Junior Cup Final between Cardea and Brotherhood Sports at Yaxley FC and a Cambs County Junior Cup Final involving Peterborough League Division Two side Parson Drove.
