It meant they had to play three games in six days, starting with their 4-1 win at Chatteris last Tuesday - Danny Duckworth (3) and Tom Hughes netting.
Next up was a 2-2 home draw against Cambourne last Thursday, with Duckworth, again, and Harry Moffett scoring.
But their best was yet to come – as they delivered a 7-1 hammering to Lakenheath on Sunday.

ST IVES RANGERS
RANGERS U12 failed to recover after going behind in the first minute which ultimately saw them slip to a 2-0 defeat at home against Bottisham.

But Hemingford ran riot after the interval with Joe Halls, Louis Cobb, Dom Fairholm and Jimmy Quinn rounding off a fine win.
