Hemingfords United breathed life into their Kershaw Premier Division survival bid with a vital victory last Saturday.

The bottom side beat Cottenham 3-1 thanks to goals from Lionel Farrell, Andrew Ging and Tom Howard to register only their second success since being promoted to the Cambs League top flight for this season.

They remain at the foot of the standings, but have closed to within two points of fellow strugglers Foxton and three points of safety.

Eaton Socon are faring considerably better after maintaining their position in the top-six with a 2-1 success over West Wratting last Saturday.

Lewis Gordine-Francis and Scott Kingsbury hit the goals that earned the points.

Needingworth returned to form to claim a first win in five Senior B Division games despite fielding a depleted side.

They had to come from behind to triumph 2-1 at Ashdon Villa thanks to a leveller from Chris Havard and a late Michael Thompson headed winner.
