St Neots toasted a weekend to savour as their five men’s teams enjoyed a clean sweep of successes.

Iain Moor, Garth Mooney, Phil Johns, Ant Holmes and man-of-the-match Bradley Forsdick fired the 1sts to a 5-0 victory at local rivals St Ives 2nds in Division Three North-West of the East Men’s League.

It was a triumph which lifted them up to third place in the standings ahead of a showdown against unbeaten table-toppers Cambridge South this Saturday.

The 2nds went three points clear at the top of Division Five North-West with a 7-0 drubbing of Cambridge South 4ths while their other three teams were all victorious in Division Six North-West (South).

The 3rds beat Ely 3rds 2-1 to remain a place behind the 4ths, who won 3-1 at St Ives 5ths.

And there was a pleasing successive for a young 5ths side, made up mostly of development players, as City of Peterborough 9ths were blown away 6-1.

St Neots Ladies 1sts were impressive winners as a Sue Glover hat-trick inspired a 6-0 victory over bottom side Lincoln Lindum 2nds in Division Two North-West of the East Women’s League.
