NEEDINGWORTH United suffered a 6-0 home defeat at the hands of mid-table Littleport Town on Saturday, a result that did little to improve their plight at the wrong end of the Kershaw Premier League.

With only Fordham beneath them in the table, Needingworth needed the points but could not compete with Littleport, who extended their unbeaten run to 11 games. The home side found themselves 5-0 down at half time, and though they rallied in the second half, they could not find the net themselves.

Eaton Socon travelled to Fulbourn in the same division and will be disappointed to have been beaten 5-1, with Charlie Farmer getting Socon's consolation.

In Senior A, Brampton made it four wins from their last six matches with a 4-0 demolition of Debden, as substitute Stuart Harris bagged a hat-trick.
