Fenstanton celebrate Cambs League Senior B title

FENSTANTON won the Cambridgeshire FA County Senior B title on Saturday when they beat second-placed Cambridge University Press Reserves 2-1.

Having already won promotion to the Senior A division, Fenstanton stretched their lead at the top of the table to 13 points with just three games of the season remaining with goals from striker Ollie Barnard, who found the net from 20 yards on the half-hour, and captain Mark Gallagher, who headed home an Adam Berrill free kick in the second half. Cambridge could only reply with a late penalty.

“It was a fantastic result becoming champions after beating one of the best teams in the league – but the season isn’t over yet,” said assistant manager Tom Tilbry. “We need to stay focused for our remaining league games and the cup final at the end of the season.”

Dom Moddy’s side will play Fulbourn Institute Reserves in the final of the Cambs League’s Percy Oldham Cup at Histon’s Glassworld Stadium on May 9.

ELSEWHERE in the Kershaw Cambs League Premier Division, Brampton moved up to eighth after grinding-out a 2-1 win over visitors Cottenham United.

Stuart Harris scored both of Brampton’s goals in the second half with Cottenham equalising after his first in the 50th minute and his winner with 20 minutes to go.

Manager Adam Burnley said: “Cottenham put the ball in the net twice during the game but both attempts were clearly offside.

“They were just as determined as we were to win the game. There weren’t that many clear chances and it was a case of grinding out a result.”

In the same division, 13th-placed Eaton Socon, drew 2-2 at Fulbourn Institute, while in the Senior A division, Hemingfords United drew 2-2 at Debden, Great Paxton drew 1-1 at home to Wisbech St Mary, and the struggling Needingworth United lost 4-1 at Sawston United.

In the Peterborough & District League, Ramsey Town continued their rise up the Premier Division table with a 2-1 win at Coates Athletic – but bottom side Alconbury lost again, this time 6-2 at home to Deeping Rangers Reserves. In Division One Warboys continued their slump when they lost 3-1 at home to Peterborough FC Internazionale, and Sawtry lost their big derby game 3-0 at home to Stilton United.
