PROMOTION to NE14 East Mens League Premier B for next season was secured for St Ives mens firsts on Saturday as they won 6-0 at Dereham seconds in Division One. After the battling draw against Old Southendians last week, Ives went into the game knowing three points would ensure a top-two finish and it was achieved thanks to Darren Coles hat-trick, a brace from Jonny Saltmarsh and a sole effort from Ben Scarrow. They remain top of the table with two games remaining, starting with a trip to Cambridge City seconds on Saturday, as they bid to cap a memorable season with Division One championship glory. On the ladies side, the firsts are in mid-table in East Womens League Division 1N after Abby Holland, Anne Selfe and Claire Young sent them to a 3-2 win at home against Ipswich thirds. This weekend, they face a tough home match against table-topping Wisbech Town. The mens seconds won 2-0 at March Town seconds in Division 3NW, Nicholas Beattie and Oliver Milner scoring, while the thirds, with Matt Keightley and Simon Rees making his thirds debut - on the scoresheet, as they defeated St Neots seconds in Division 4NW. Emily Skidmore and Laura Ball both bagged a brace as the ladies seconds won 4-1 at Huntingdon in the Cambridgeshire Ladies League: Premier Division. The thirds, meanwhile, were handed a Division One walkover win against Market Deeping seconds, who conceded the game.
