Saturday 19 April
A LONG football season is fast reaching its conclusion in both the Cambridgeshire Kershaw and Peterborough Leagues.
In the Kershaw Premier, Needingworth needed more than a point that they gained in the 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers Wickhambrook.
Mid-table Eaton Socon fell to a 4-2 defeat against championship-chasing Waterbeach, while gameless Great Paxton know that the two games they have this week could take them out of the bottom two.
In Senior A, Somersham continued their crawl to safety with a 1-1 home draw against Foxton. Third from bottom Brampton had a disastrous result, falling 3-1 to bottom club Linton. In Senior B, Bluntisham Rangers sit safely in the lower regions of the table, but will have taken little pleasure from the 5-0 hammering they got from Saffron Crocus.

Things are getting very tight in BIS 1B, with St Ives Rangers and Great Paxton Reserves watching each other's results closely as they both try to avoid the drop. Rangers went down 5-1 to March Reserves and Paxton's 3-1 reversal at the hands of Fenstanton did them no favours. Fenny, along with Eaton Socon Reserves , Buckden and Gransden Chequers sit in mid table mediocrity but both Buckden and Gransden lost 3-0 at the weekend.
In BIS 2A, both Elsworth and Papworth seem to have a top six finish in sight, with the former getting a point against Whittlesford Res and the latter winning 2-1 against Wilbraham.
Hemingfords Utd Reserves won 3-1 at Milton and know a win in the final game will give them the runners-up spot in BIS 2B. Somersham Reserves have sixth spot to themselves after winning 3-2 against Vine and Needingworth Reserves and Godmanchester Reserves are safe even though Goddy crashed 6-1 at Over.
Brampton Reserves won 5-0 at home against Fordham and Bluntisham Rangers inflicted a 5-2 defeat on St Ives Town A in BIS 3B, but all are clear of danger. Not so Huntingdon RGE who still languish near the foot of the division. They will be grateful for three points from a super 3-1 win against high-flying Mepal that may prove a real bonus by the end of the season.
Things look good for Hemingfords Utd A in BIS 4B, but it could have been better. After a 2-2 draw against Vine Reserves they need to win their final match to secure second spot and Fenstanton Reserves finished the season on a high with a 2-1 win against Barton Mills.
Earith United will take the runners-up spot in 5B after a 7-2 win at Dataracks Elite, whilst in 5A Gransden Chequers Reserves won 5-3 against Fowlmere Res and will be content in mid-table.
There were few games in the Peterborough leagues but Ramsey Reserves will be pleased with their top five finish in Honda One. They took a 3-3 draw from the visit of Alconbury Reserves who are desperate for points to avoid the drop. Stewart Bailey, Adam Taylor and Ian Stokes were on target for the Rams whilst Lee Deane with a pair and Shakeel Tolcher gave the visitors some hope.
Champions Ramsey continued in their quest of an unbeaten league season in their penultimate game with an 8-0 win at Werrington thanks to Jamie Darlow's hat-trick, two from Olly Verral and one each for Chris Talton, Nick Kay and Steve Robson.
