League defeats for Pinchbeck United and Holbeach United

Pinchbeck and Holbeach United both suffered second half away day woes on Saturday.

The Knights were beaten 4-0 away at Sherwood Colliery while Holbeach lost 3-1 at Norwich CBS.

Pinchbeck had produced a superb first half performance as they held the United Counties League Premier Division North leaders at the break.

However, Sherwood struck four times in the second half to inflict a fourth successive defeat on the Knights.

Craig Westcarr broke the deadlock just five minutes after the restart before Jobe Shaw struck a second goal just ahead of the hour mark.

Harry Bircumshaw bagged the third goal as the second half approached the midway mark before Aaron Korpal sealed the win with 11 minutes remaining.

Pinchbeck - who have re-signed Jordan Neil from Blackstones - remain three points clear of the relegation zone but are without a game on Saturday as scheduled opponents Lincoln United have a rearranged FA Vase match.

Holbeach had found themselves trailing by one goal at half-time of their match on Saturday in the Thurlow Nunn League.

They then conceded two goals early in the second half to give their hosts control of the contest.

Although Jack Prentice pulled a goal back for the Tigers, they fell to their ninth defeat from 13 away games.

Despite picking up just two points from their last four games, Holbeach are still just a point outside the play-off spots as fifth-placed Harwich & Parkeston were beaten by Diss Town on Saturday with Sudbury Reserves lost to lowly Leiston Under 23s.

Spalding United's home match with Lye Town in the Northern Premier League Midlands Division was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Despite their lack of match action, the Tulips were boosted by third-placed Anstey Nomads losing at home to Cambridge City.

Ex-Spalding striker Dylan Edge was on target for the Lilywhites as their victory leaves third-placed Anstey two points behind the Tulips having played the same amount of games.

Deeping Rangers' trip to Melton Town and Bourne's match at St Andrews were also postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

The Wakes are back in action tonight (Tuesday) with a Division One trip to Holwell Sports.

Their lead at the top of the table was cut to nine points over the weekend when second-placed Clipstone defeated Blackstones.
