Ely were put to the sword by their Cambridgeshire rivals St Neots, on Saturday.

City were looking to build on last week’s draw at Spalding II – their first point of the season – but were out of sorts against St Neots at the Downham Road ground and were soundly beaten.

The visitor’s Phil Johns needed only five minutes to break the deadlock and further goals quickly followed. Darren Coles and Daniel Sutton added their names to the scoresheet in the second half before Brett Nunn completed the scoring from a short corner.

Without a win in 20 games, Ely have already been relegated from East Division 3NW and face starting next season down in 4NW.

Elsewhere, Ely City I went down by a single goal at Dereham II in Division 2N.

The first team have also found life difficult in 2015 but can still avoid relegation with victories in their final two matches.
