Andrew Ging fired Hemingfords to their first Kershaw Premier Division win of the season last Saturday.

Ging grabbed the only goal as the newly-promoted local lads triumphed at Gamlingay to boost their Cambs League top-flight survival hopes.

Fellow strugglers Brampton also picked up three valuable points after emerging victorious from a seven-goal thriller at Sawston. Harvey Millier hit the winner after being picked out by a Gareth Owens corner. Owens had earlier got his name on the scoresheet along with Danny Cain, who struck twice.

Godmanchester Rovers Reserves continued their fine start in Senior B Division. Farris Alston and Jake Burton hit the goals in a 2-0 triumph over Hardwick Reserves which lifted them into third place.

Needingworth are in the top six at the same level despite having to settle for a point following a topsy-turvy tussle at Comberton which ended 3-3.

The locals recovered from a two-goal deficit to hit the front courtesy of Ryan Potts, Dan Sherlock and Matt Cox only to be undone by a late leveller.

Needingworth Reserves were one of two local teams to roar into double-figures last Saturday. James Hodson slammed in six of the goals as they bashed Chatteris Town B 10-1 in Division Five B. Former Hemingfords boss Brett Swales also featured among their scorers.
