A round-up of the weekend’s football action

Football Round-up

SOMERSHAM Town fell to a heavy defeat at home in the Kershaw Premier against Hardwick.

The final score of 3-0 to the visitors left Somersham in fourth place in the league but ruing a series of missed chances.

Brampton remained unbeaten in Senior A as they sent Sawston packing with a 3-0 result. Hemingfords United got the better of Wisbech Town Reserves with a 1-0 win. There was no luck for Needingworth who gave top-of-the-table Soham a real run for the points. Matt Cox gave Needingworth the lead, and Chris Havard and Mark Joyce.

Soham hit back with a penalty, and a scrambled injury-time winner saw Needingworth go home empty-handed in a 2-1 defeat.

Great Paxton will be hoping to sharpen up their act after losing 4-2 at home to Lakenheath Reserves in Senior B.
