St Ives Town 2 St Neots Town 0

LOCAL bragging rights went to St Ives as skipper Will Fordham scored a brace to consign St Neots to the relegation zone.

The scores were level at half-time for the morning kick-off but Fordham broke the deadlock after 63 minutes with a header from a Liam Kennett corner.

The home side continued to apply pressure as they dominated the second period with Kennett, Lloyd Howard and Graeme Thackray all going close.

St Ives finally wrapped up the win on 80 minutes when Thackray was fouled in the box and top scorer Fordham stepped up to blast home.

"I was disappointed in the reaction of some of the players and it looked as if a few of them didn't want to be there."

Meanwhile, it has been announced that St Neots have installed Bob Bridges as club chairman, taking over from Bob Page.

Young said: "The change in the boardroom has meant that the players won't be paid for two weeks and that did have some effect on the performance on the pitch."
