SOHAM Under-18s impressive recent run of form continued last week with a comprehensive 4-0 victory at Wisbech St Mary.
The Greens went ahead midway through the first-half and never relinquished control as they secured their fourth win in five games over league newcomers Wisbech.
Manager Chris Gibson, said: "It was going to be a tough game. St Mary are a new outfit and they haven't got anything to lose this year, so could really come at us. They caused us a few problems, but a bit of experience and clinical finishing from us was a major difference.
"I think we dominated well and scored at the right times. I managed to rest a couple tonight and give a few run outs to lads that have been working and pushing hard. Next week is going to be a very hard game, but we'll go there with confidence."

Gibson was able to make a few changes to the side, to freshen things up after last week's hard fought extra time win in the FA Cup; the most notable change saw keeper Matt Phillips rested and Jamie Clark brought in for his first start.
Despite their relative inexperience in the Ridgeon's League set-up, Saints started brightly and showed no signs of being overawed as they set about Soham in the first 15 minutes.

After weathering the early onslaught, Soham began to launch attacking forays of their own and took the lead when Scott Davis found acres of space in the midfield and notched his first goal with an impressive flick round the keeper from eight yards.
A minute later and Davis was again in thick of the actions as his precision pass with the outside of his foot, split the Saints' defence and Tom Taylor muscled in to make it two with a controlled finish.
Kieron Wingfield made it 3-0 after the break and played a part in Soham's fourth as he earned a penalty, which was coolly dispatched by Dan Sterna.
