Witchford Colts 0

Stretham Sporting 6

THE Easter break did nothing to upset Stretham's form.

Stretham's wide midfielders George Carroll and Michael Thomas were a constant threat and the visitors found themselves 5-0 up at the break, through a Will Crisp brace and goals from Carroll, Craig Lawrence and Harry Thomson.

Witchford hit a post with a penalty in the second half, but Carroll gave the keeper no chance to score his second and Stretham's sixth.

Bluntisham 2 Witchford 6

A CLASSY second-half performance saw Witchford to a convincing away win.

After conceding an early goal, leading scorer Sam Barbersoon struck twice to put the visitors in front, his first effort a stunning volley after a great first touch.

A very good Lewis Timbrell goal made it 3-1, but Bluntisham pulled one back before the break after a defensive mix-up.

Dan Butcher got the fourth after a great Paul Dewey pass and 15 minutes later Butcher scored his second after a fine set up from Ollie Kerridge, and Jamie Douglas completed the scoring after a good throw-in.

Waterbeach 1 Ely Crusaders 4

SUPER sub David Balcombe struck twice as Crusaders pulled away to victory.

Waterbeach scored a breakaway goal after eight minutes, but a Dan Simper finish and a cracking Chris Flemming volley put the visitors ahead by the 24th minute.

Balcombe came off the bench in the second half to secure the win, firstly heading in from a quickly-taken free-kick and fine Steven Nangle cross, and then smashing home after a Martin Collier pass.
