There was a happy return to the dug-out for Chris Gibson last weekend.

Gibson, whose playing days were ended last year following a broken leg, returned to the dugout to take the reigns at Soham Town Rangers Reserves.

And he managed to guide them to a much-needed win in the Kershaw Senior A Division, with Will Gardner, Marcus Hall and Oliver Henderson finding the net in a 3-0 victory over Cottenham United.

Gibson will hope to add another win on Saturday when his men travel to in-form Fowlmere (2pm).

The second-placed side trail leaders Over Sports on goal difference and are yet to be beaten on home soil this season.

Elsewhere, in the Mead, Plant and Grab 1B Division, Littleport Town extended their unbeaten run to three games with a 2-2 draw at fifth-placed Houghton & Wyton.

Jon Bartlett and Michael Jorden found the net for ‘Port, who travel to AFC Barley Mow on Saturday (2pm).
