Photographer misses Fenstanton goals but there are plenty around in the cups

IT was a cup weekend for many of the district’s teams with The Hunts Post’s photographer Helen Drake at Fenstanton for their Cambs FA William Cockell Memorial quarter-final against Soham United.

Unfortunately, it was Soham’s day as the home side went down 4-0, though there was better news for Great Paxton and Barry Clarke, whose two goals helped beat Fulbourn Institute Reserves 2-1 in the same competition.

In the Percy Oldham quarters, Bluntisham Rangers won 4-0 at Longstanton with Alex Woodhouse scoring twice from the substitutes’ bench to add to David White and Martin Cooper’s strikes.

In the second round of the John Abblet Cup Eaton Socon A went through with a 4-3 win at Wimblimgton Reserves, while Houghton & Wyton went to Little Paxton for a Hunts derby in the Reg Haigh & Arthur Peck Cup with John Morris scoring twice and Dan Davidson, Lloyd Howard and Marc Puckering getting the others in their 5-3 win.

Eaton Socon came out on top in their Cambs League Premier Cup game with Brampton.

Simon Wareing gave visitors Brampton a 1-0 lead in the 16th minute but a goal from Scott Kingsbury and two from Josh Sadler gave the home side their victory.

Brampton Manager Adam Burnley said: “Eaton Socon deserved the win, they out fought our side which, with a couple of exceptions, was lacklustre.”
