Whittlesey Athletic warmed up for their big FA Vase date on Saturday (October 31) with a 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Harrowby in United Counties Division One.

Peterborough Northern Star are bottom of the Premier Division with just two points from 10 matches following a 1-0 home loss to Wellingborough Town.

March Town are second in Division One North of the Eastern Counties League after a 4-0 home win over Haverhill last night. Craig Gillies (2), Danny Emmington and Jack Friend scored for the Hares.
