The new St Ives Town Under 13 team are enjoying a fine start to life.

Brett Fairholm’s boys have won three of their four games in Cambridge & District Colts League competitions so far – and the latest success last Sunday also provided a sweet slice of revenge for their only defeat to date.

They beat Warboys Black 5-2 in a Division A clash thanks to two goals from Alfie Lowe, a Jack Taylor penalty and strikes by Matt Lynn, and Tom Smith.

The Saints lads, who have received kit sponsorship from ABT Insurance for their first campaign, had lost 7-3 to the same opponents a couple of weeks earlier in the group stage of the League Cup.

They have also enjoyed two double-figures triumphs in the opening month of the new season - thumping Fulbourn Falcons 12-0 in their league curtain-raiser and beating Chatteris 14-0 in a League Cup clash.
