ROUND-UP: Rock-solid Sports inch closer to the title, second-teamers shine for Netherton, Bretton North End need a point
Peterborough Sports Reserves are inching their way to the Peterborough Premier Division title.
A 1-0 win over Deeping Rangers Reserves on Saturday (April 29) made it seven wins in a row and five clean sheets in a row for Andrew Bradley’s boys.
Sports go into the final four games with a four-point lead over Pinchbeck United who maintained their challenge with a 6-0 win over Leverington which featured a hat-trick for Tyler Wright.
Netherton United are three points further back after demolishing Uppingham 10-0 at the Grange. Reserve-team regulars Lewis Archer and Jorge Barbosa both bagged hat-tricks as did top scorer Tom Randall.
Uppingham are now likely to be relegated along with Crowland who can’t finish outside the bottom two after an 8-1 home hammering at the hands of Stamford Lions. Luke Ball continued his terrific run of form with four goals.
Langtoft United beat ICA Sports 2-1 thanks in part to a first goal in six matches for Scott Spearink, while Moulton Harrox edged Ketton in a seven-goal thriller.
Jack Dean scored twice as AFC Stanground Sports drew 3-3 at Wisbech Town Reserves. Kieran Hamilton scored all the Wisbech goals.
Ramsey moved back to the top of Division Two with a 7-0 thrashing of Leverington Reserves with Jamie Darlow and Aiden Stanford both scoring twice.
Bretton North End’s 8-2 win at Uppingham means they need a point from their final two matches to formally clinch the Division Three title. Jamie Graham hit a hat-trick on Saturday.
Division Four title winners Premiair were held to a 4-4 draw at FC Peterborough Reserves. Cory Rose scored twice for the champions.
