Peterborough and District Football League round-up





Mike Hasler hit a hat-trick as Bourne Town A opened up a 10-point lead at the top of Division Three of the Peterborough League on Saturday.

Hasler's treble and an effort from James Ferrow fired the Wakes' third team to a 4-0 away win at Long Sutton Reserves.

With the Magpies' first team not having a game, referee absence and four regulars not available, this had the making of an interesting game.

But all of Bourne's squad members performed admirably, providing performances that the badge deserves.

Apart from a few isolated counter attacks, Ben Asplin in the Wakes goal had very little to do. When called upon dealing very well with the situation in hand.

Throughout the first half, despite the away team's dominance, there were very few openings. Jack Durno and Ryan Baxter worked tirelessly in attack without any clear chances coming their way.

Will Hawkins, back from university and making only his second appearance of the season, was very dominant in the middle of the park.

From his attacking forays, one of the best efforts of the half was provided, firing narrowly wide of the opposition’s right post.

It then took a superb speculative 25-yard effort from Hasler to break the deadlock and give Bourne the lead at half-time.

Nathan Bills and Ferrow were introduced in the second half, to replace Baxter and Durno. Both continued the hard working efforts of their predecessors.

Bills’ running into the channels and Ferrow’s direct running started to stretch the opposition’s defence.

Bills had one penalty appeal turned down, but not long after was rewarded for his persistence after being hauled down in the box. Subsequently Hasler converted the penalty to make it 2-0.

Ferrow’s run down the right then found Hasler at the far post for the third goal.

Bourne's back four of Jake Dilley, Darren Halliday, Tom Ward and Sam Moore managed their responsibilities confidently, providing the foundations for the attacking play.

Ferrow completed the scoring for his team with a left foot power driver.

Luke Rudd, on as a substitute and making is club debut, had the ball in the net but was harshly ruled offside.

Manager Steve Bills commented: "With six league games to finish the season, nobody is getting complacent, the focus being one game at a time and see where that takes us.

"Whatever the outcome, it's been a very enjoyable season on and off the pitch with great togetherness in the squad."

Bourne travel to Thorney on Saturday, having been knocked out of the cup by their hosts on penalties earlier in the season.

Uppingham Town Reserves roared to their biggest victory of the Division Three season on Saturday.

They returned with a 6-0 victory from their Division Three trip to face Ramsey Town Reserves.
