The Cuckoos went down 2-0 to fellow United Counties Premier Division outfit Eynesbury Rovers in a Hunts Senior Cup semi-final at In2itive Park. A goal in each half ensured Eynesbury went through to face St Neots in the final which will also be played at Yaxley FC on May 2.

Yaxley have already reached the final of the United Counties League Cup. They travel to face Eynesbury in the Hinchingbrooke Cup semi-final next Tuesday (March 27).

Deeping Rangers were denied the chance to make ground on the top two in the UCL Premier Division as their scheduled fixture at Leicester Nirvana was postponed.

March Town United remain unbeaten under new boss Brett Whaley after coming from behind to force a 1-1 home draw with Norwich CBS. An own goal in the second half made it two draws a win in three games under Whaley for the Hares who have moved upto 14th in Division One of the Easstern Counties League.
