An important point gained in a top-of-the-table Cambs League clash came at a huge cost for title-chasing Offord United last Saturday.

They lost winger Greg Cooper to a broken leg, which will sideline him for the rest of the season, in a 1-1 draw at Whittlesford Reserves in Newmarket Motor Company 4A.

Cooper was injured shortly after Offord had seen Damian Sharp’s opening goal cancelled out. Offord remain 10 points clear of Whittlesford, who have three games in hand, in the race for the title.

Two more Arran Mackey goals helped to keep table-topping Hemingfords in the thick of the Kershaw Senior A Division title race.

Jack Prime also netted in their 3-1 success at Ely City Reserves.

Brampton claimed their first Kershaw Premier win for more than a month. Si Linnell and George Cresswell struck to sink Cherry Hinton 2-0.

Matthew Rothery hit the only goal as Brampton Reserves continued their attempt to escape from relegation bother in Newmarket Motor Company Division 2B with victory at Bluntisham Rangers Reserves.
