It took Deeping 35 minutes to break visiting St Andrews down, but they still managed to rattle in eight goals before full-time. Scott Coupland (3), Scott Mooney (2), Dan Schiavi (2) and Michael Simpson scored the goals in an 8-1 romp.

Deeping are seventh, but have dropped just four points all season and have games in hand on all of those above them, including Yaxley who are up to fourth after five top-flight wins in a row.

A decent Daventry Town team - they started the day above the Cuckoos - were put to the sword at In2itive Park with Tom Waumsley (2), Dan Cotton, Liam Hook and Matt Sparrow on target in a 5-1 win.
