Brampton are certain to end the year as the leading local team in the Cambs League.

Wayne Ambler’s men cemented their third position in the Kershaw Premier Divisio standings with a high-scoring success last Saturday.

Ollie Vale hit a hat-trick in a 7-2 rout of Comberton United at the Memorial Field. Danny Cain, Matt Gearing, Martin Turner and substitute Nick Garner also found the net.

Brampton have two more home fixtures to complete 2017. They are chasing a second December success over Cherry Hinton this Saturday after winning the reverse fixture 5-1 three weeks ago.

And Ambler’s men then entertain Sawston United in their final outing of the year in December 30. They will fancy their chances of another three points in that game after thumping the same opponents 8-0 earlier in the season.

Bluntisham Rangers climbed into the top half of the Kershaw Senior B Division standings thanks to a 5-3 win against 10-man Great Chishill last Saturday.

Robert Read and Jaden Rogers both struck twice for the local side with John Flack also on target against a visiting side who had former Eynesbury Rovers man Luca Dusi dismissed in the first half.

AFC Barley Mow saw their bid for a third successive Cambs League title dented by a second consecutive defeat.

The Huntingdon lads were beaten 3-1 by local rivals St Ives Rangers in a Division 1B derby. Stephen Hastings, Lloyd Schwier and Mohammed Islam struck for Rangers.

A Karl Tomkinson hat-trick helped Hemingfords United Reserves thump struggling Littleport Town 6-1 at the same level.

Brampton Reserves climbed to within three points of the Division 2B summit after beating leaders March Rangers last Saturday.

Martin Faulkner, Omar Marsh and substitute Simon Linnell hit the goals for a side who also have four games in hand on the table-toppers.

Blake Rivers took his goal tally to eight in two games when hitting a brace as Eaton Socon A triumphed 3-1 at Girton United Reserves in Division 3A.

George Smith was another man to find the net twice. His double-strike helped Huntingdon United Reserves beat Houghton & Wyton Reserves 5-2 in Division 4B. Both of those sides are chasing a second successive promotion.

St Ives Rangers have enjoyed a fine opening half of their debut campaign in Division 5B. They claimed a 3-1 victory over Littleport Town Reserves – featuring goals from Jackson Bonny, Jack Rayner and Sonny Rumbold – in their final outing of 2017 to leave themselves firmly in title contention.
