A DOMINANT Littleport Town side stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games with an emphatic 6-0 win over Needingworth at the weekend.

Dave Cullum's men have been in irresistible form in recent weeks and their impressive run showed no signs of ending on Saturday as they eased past a spirited Needingworth side.

The win propels Port up into seventh place in the Kershaw Premier League although they remain some 22 points adrift of leaders Cambridge University Press following an indifferent start to the season.

Overnight deluges of rain made the pitch a tricky prospect for both sides as the game got underway, but it was Port who settled the quicker as Needingworth looked to organise their defence.

The goal sparked a flurry of goals from Port who stretched their lead to 5-0 at half-time. Andrew Lee notched a quick-fire brace, including a superb header from range, Sean Ambrose nodded home and Pryke completed his brace to put the visitors comfortably in control.
