PDFL round-up: First-half strikes send hot Harrox ten points clear

Moulton Harrox took a big step towards landing the ChromaSport PDFL Premier Division title on Saturday as they moved ten points clear at the top of the table.

The table-toppers defeated Leverington Sports 2-0 at Broad Lane to extend their advantage, while champions and nearest challengers Netherton United were held to a 2-2 draw by Whittlesey Athletic.

Striker Marcus Parry and midfielder Tom Panton netted the goals for Kev Nottingham’s Harrox in the first half, an advantage they maintained to secure a 20th victory from 24 league games so far this season.

This Saturday sees Moulton make the trip to fifth-placed Holbeach United Reserves (3pm).

Elsewhere in the top tier, the only other game involving a South Holland side to beat the weather was Sutton Bridge United’s 8-0 humbling at Peterborough Sports Development.
