The start of supplementary cups across both the United Counties and Cambs County leagues brought happiness to many clubs - if only for the fact they were back playing.
Huntingdon Town opened with a 1-1 draw at home to Whittlesey Athletic in the Division One Cup of the UCL. Marcio Martins got their goal 10 minutes into the second half, cancelling out a first-half penalty from Athletic.
In the Cambs County League the Senior Cup saw plenty of goals with only one tie ending 0-0.
Both Eaton Socon and Eynesbury United hit four. Jordan Brown got two, with one each for Jake Alderson and Darren Woodend, in a 4-1 win at Brampton, Connor Ray replying for them, and all four Eynesbury goals arrived in the second half as they beat Fulbourn Institute 4-0.
Dean Parratt got two of them with the others from Samuel Piesse and Adam Jennings.
AFC Barley Mow trumped them all with six in a 6-2 win over St Ives Rangers. Josh Turner led the way with four while Dennis Squires and Ollie Wills picked up the others.
Hemingfords United were involved in a cracking clash with Ely City Res, eventually winning 3-2. Tom Spark (two) and Andrew Ging got their goals.
