Former Peterborough United youth team player Jack Friend delivered a debut hat-trick for March Town today (November 17).
Friend moved across Cambridgeshire from Wisbech St Mary earlier this week and starred as his new club thrashed his old club 5-0.
Max Mattless and Rob Conyard also scored as March maintained sixth place in Division One North of the Thurlow Nunn Easterm Counties League with an eighth unbeaten game in a row. Wisbech St Mary are 17th of 19 teams.
It was a good day in the United Counties Premier Division for Deeping Rangers who moved into third place with a 1-0 win at Kirby Muxloe. Dan Schiavi scored the only goal of the game in the first-half, but he also saw a second-half spot-kick saved.
Deeping moved above local rivals Pinchbeck United and Holbeach United who were both beaten.
Pinchbeck went down 3-0 at home to second placed Rugby Town, while Holbeach surprisingly lost 2-1 at Wellingborough Town. James Tricks had equalised for the Tigers before the break.
Peterborough Northern Star gave leaders Daventry a fright before succumbing 2-1 at the Branch Bros Stadium. A Jake Sansby penalty gave Star the lead after the break, an advantage preserved by a fine penalty save from Quincey Shorunmu.
But Daventry were awarded a second spotkick early in the second half which they converted before grabbing a winner 20 minutes from time. Star drop three places to ninth.
Zack Munton equalised late for Bourne in their 1-1 home draw with Sileby, but it was a bad day for Blackstones who slumped to a 4-1 reverse at Harrowby. Player-boss misseed a penalty for Stones when they were 1-0 down in the first-half.
