Peterborough City could be the dark horses for the Peterborough League Division Two title.

The Bretton Park-based outfit had already toppled the well-fancied Stanground Sports team before claiming the unbeaten record of leaders Netherton United Reserves last Saturday (October 2).

It finished 5-3 to City with Sam Thompson (2), Jake Sansby, Thomas Lancaster and Kieran Blanchard scoring their goals. Michael Halfhide, Lewis Archer and Derick Dadzie replied for Netherton who remain top, three points clear of second-placed Farcet.

Jason Kilbride netted a magnificent seven goals in Stilton Reserves’ 12-0 thrashing of Parkside, while Reece Wood, James Ferris, Rhys Lenton and Adam Lomas were the men on the mark for Glinton & Northborough in a 4-1 win over FC Hampton.
