Mareham United suffered a heavy defeat at home to table topping Wyberton, going down 7-0 in the Boston and District Saturday Premier League.

This leaves them in 10th place in the league, but still well ahead of Pointon in 11th and only two points off Old Leake in seventh. And Mareham will be looking to pick up points this Saturday at home to lowly Old Doningtonians.

In Division One Woodhall Spa United took a point from their away trip to Freiston Reserves, 1-1 the final score.

Coningsby meanwhile had a sorry trip to Wyberton Reserves as they were on the end of a 5-1 drubbing.

Coningsby sit 6th and Woodhall 8th and face Freiston Reserves and Skegness United Reserves respectively at home this Saturday.

In Division two Mareham United Reserves suffered a 2-0 away defeat to Spalding Harriers while Leverton were the visitors for Coningsby Reserves.

It was an energetic match from the kick-off with both teams manufacturing scoring chances, but the spectators had to wait 15 minutes for the first goal of the day, Gerrard Curry sliding in to put the ball past the visitors’ goalie at the edge of the box.

Just before the break Jamie Beamish was brought down within sniffing distance of the Leverton goalmouth and scored Coningsby’s second from the resulting penalty kick.

This was certainly a game of two halves however, to use the old cliche. After half-time both teams returned to the field with an obvious increase in

Four goals from Leverton including a penalty with the last kick of the game saw Coningsby Reserves defeated 4-2.

This leaves Mareham United Reserves rock bottom of the league, Coningsby Reserves sit in comfort in mid-table. On Saturday it’s Mareham’s turn to take on Leverton away while Coningsby have two weeks off from league action.

In Division Three table topping AFC Tetford faced a tough game away to fourth placed FC Kirton and slumped to a 4-0 defeat.

Tetford now trail Boston College by two points and College have two games in hand. AFC will be hoping to get back to winning ways this weekend away to Swineshead Institute A.
