ELY City's season continued to gather momentum at the weekend with a battling 3-2 win over Cambridge City 3.
The step-up to Division 2S of the East League set-up has proved a stern test of the all conquering Ely side of last season but, despite a slow start, the team have started to find their feet.
Despite the eventual outcome, Ely began in slovenly fashion against Cambridge and went behind early on as a home forward found space enough to fire home.
The visitors weren't overawed by the setback though, and set about exerting pressure on the home defence from the restart. Some good work on the left wing by Matt Holden forced a short corner and Chris Purllant was on hand to fire home the resulting move.

Cambridge increased their lead shortly after parity was restored from another well worked short corner routine but, after regrouping at half-time, Ely levelled the scores from a clinical short corner routine, dispatched by Stu Clarke.
Sustained pressure by Ely forced several other short corners in the ensuing minutes and it fell to Sean Gilmour to give Ely the lead and the win with a trade mark drag flick past the Cambridge keeper in the dying minutes.
