Cambridge City IV 2
A SOLID performance saw the Vikings to a comfortable win.
Laura Matthews and captain Rob Wootton fired the Littleport club into a 2-1 lead at the break. Both players scored a goal each in the second half to add to efforts from Martin Brown and Sam Duffield.
Wootton said: "For the most part we were in control of the game but our play wasn't as fluent as it can be, so it was good to secure a win without playing particularly well."
Vikings junior team hosted a competition at City of Ely College, on Saturday, where they played six 15-minute games against a Norwich under-13 team.
