St Neots Town 3 Cogenhoe United 0
ST NEOTS halted a run of four successive defeats with this win over an experienced Cogenhoe side.
Manager Marvin Johnson was pleased with the performance. He said: "The lads have stuck to their task over the weeks and deserved the points.
"I was just as satisfied with the way we achieved the win as the valuable three points that we gained."
The home side were good value for their win and had the better of the first half with a James Hall shot against the post giving the visitors a scare.

Luigi Rocco skipped past his marker and pulled back a perfect cross for Matt Bannister to volley home just a minute before the break.
Saints seemed to relax and were fortunate not to concede a goal a minute later when the crossbar came to the rescue to keep out Tom McGowan's 30-yard effort for the visitors.
Nine minutes after the break, Rocco fed Peter Okechukwu, who turned his marker before lobbing the ball home.
Keith Thomas was making his first start for the club in place of injured team skipper Jon Hoggett and having a good game and although the visitors made some half chances, a third goal for Saints seemed inevitable.
It finally arrived on 75 minutes when Luke Knight rode a fierce tackle to break through the Cogenhoe defence and slot home.
