Eynesbury launched a hectic United Counties League Premier Division run-in with a notable success yesterday.

Rovers eased to a 3-1 success at fellow top-six side Holbeach United in the first of six games in the space of just 14 days.

Teenage talent Rhys Thorpe fired the Hunts Senior Cup runners-up into an early lead in South Lincolnshire, but the hosts levelled just after the half-hour.

Lee Bassett restored Eynesbury’s advantage seconds before the break and Joe Bradbury clinched victory with seven minutes to go.

Mark Ducket’s men climbed into fourth place courtesy of this victory and face a quick return to action.

They host strugglers Boston Town at Hall Road tomorrow night (Monday) before going to relegated Huntingdon on Wednesday.

St Neots Town and Godmanchester Rovers both saw their scheduled home matches postponed yesterday due to waterlogged pitches.
