Former first-team regular Tom Randall bagged a hat-trick as Netherton’s A team won 6- 1 at Warboys Reserves in Division Four. Leaders Sutton Bridge were surprisingly beaten 7-1 at Whittlesey A.

FC Peterborough have hit the front in what looks like being a competitive Division One title race this season. There are already no unbeaten records. FC Peterborough took over at the top after a 4-1 win at Cardea. Arslan Ali, Michael Goncalves, Zohaib Iqbal and Vitor Vaz scored the goals for the new table-toppers. There were 7-1 wins for probable challengers Ramsey Town and Tydd against PNS Reserves and Eunice respectively.

Cardea Reserves remained top of Division Three after a hard fought 3-1 win at FC Peterborough Reserves. Dominic Goymour, Thomas Brazil and Matthew Smith scored second-half goals for the leaders.

Stilton United are three points clear at the top of the Peterborough Premier Division after a 4-1 win at Wittering Premiair. Kyial West scored twice. Nathan Rudman claimed his seventh goal of the season for Oundle Town in a 4-3 win over Stamford Bels.

Two set-piece goals undid Netherton United at home to Moulton Harrox. Ian Bradbury and Ash Coddington scored for Harrox before Andrew Irvine replied with a long-range thunderbolt for the city side. Uppingham are still unbeaten after a 0-0 draw at Holbeach.
