ROUND-UP: Tulips out, slow summer for Peterborough Sports, Yaxley keep winning
Spalding United joined local rivals Stamford AFC on the Lincs Cup sidelines with a quarter-final defeat at Grantham (July 14).
The home side won a quarter-final tie 3-0. The Tulips suffered a key injury with Jordan Lemon suffering a broken arm.
Peterborough Sports’ slow summer continued with a 4-1 friendly defeat at lower level Newmarket, but there were mitigating circumstances. A traffic accident forced the kick-off to be delayed and Sports were anyway fielding a depleted side.
Josh Moreman scored their consolation goals.
Scott Mooney and David Burton-Jones scored for Deeping Rangers in a 2-1 win at Netherton United. New signing Ondre Odain scored for Netherton.
Deeping are at Bourne for a friendly tomorrow (July 18) before hosting a Peterborough United XI on Saturday (July 22, 3pm).
Peterborough Northern Star played two quick friendlies winning 2-0 at Peterborough Premier Division side Stamford Lions before losing 5-3 to United Counties Division One newcomers Pinchbeck. Josh Smith, a recent signing from ICA Sports, scored his first Pinchbeck goal.
Yaxley’s stunning summer continued with a third straight win over higher level opposition. A first-half Dan Cotton goal secured a 1-0 win over Cambridge City at In2itive Park.
