Witchford Colts 1
Newmarket Town 3
WITCHFORD put up a valiant fight against a strong Newmarket side but the visitors' clinical finishing proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Newmarket took the lead and, as Witchford pressed for an equaliser, they broke away to double their advantage before the break. Colts were back in the game immediately after half-time thanks to Harvey Cross' excellent finish but Newmarket netted again and , despite coming under a lot of pressure from the home side, they held for the win.

Witchford Colts 6
Cambridge Diamonds 1
WITCHFORD dominated the first half of this cup tie.
Davie Thompson and Matthew Loades both grabbed a pair of goals and Matt Ashman added a fifth as the Diamonds defence struggled with the pace of the Witchford attack. Diamonds responded with a goal just before half time.
The second half was a more even affair with both defences on top. Matt Ashman eventually broke through and finished well for his second and Witchford's sixth to take the home team into the next round of the cup.
WITCHFORD started the match brightly, creating a number of chances early on.
The deadlock was broken mid way through the first half with some good passing play from the visitors which saw the ball end up in the net. Witchford equalised soon after through Chloe Minall who lobbed the keeper from distance. The second half saw Sawtry come out stronger and they soon had the better of the home side, scoring two more before a corner in the final minute sealed the victory.
Shelford & Stapleford 2
Littleport Town 3
PORT came away with an important victory despite not playing their best football at Shelford & Stapleford.
Port started the better but could not find the net and it was the hosts who took the lead midway through the first half when Port's defence failed to clear.
Port got back on level terms when Alister Musa scored following a flick on from Will Crisp. Port scored again through Charlie Bowditch and very soon after a solo effort from Tom Beresford made the points safe.
