PDFL round-up: Struggling Sports hold Moulton Harrox to halt their perfect start

Champions Moulton Harrox dropped their first ChromaSport PDFL Premier Division points of the season on Saturday as they were held to a surprise 2-2 draw at previously pointless Leverington Sports.

Harrox had won their first five fixtures of the league campaign, but goals from Thomas Crowson and Louie Garner denied them.

Declan Earth and an own goal ensured Harrrox at least claimed a point, while Sports had Billy Fowler sent off.

Harrox are now just a point clear at the top after second-placed Uppingham Town romped to a 5-0 victory over Tydd.

There was better news for fellow top tier side Long Sutton Athletic, however, as they earned an eye-catching victory in the PFA Senior Cup.

The Magpies knocked off much-fancied Stamford Lions 2-1 at London Road to take their place in the next round.

Meanwhile, it was a tail of woe for the four South Holland sides based in Division One.

Crowland Town fared the best as they were edged out 4-3 by Oundle Town in a PFA Challenge Cup thriller at Snowden Field.

Peter Fox, Stephen Wells and the prolific Corban Oldham netted for Crowland, but it wasn’t enough to reach the next stage.

In the league, Moulton Harrox slipped to a 4-2 reverse at Kings Cliffe.

Jack Semmence and Ryan Wheeler were on-target for Moulton’s second string.

Also beaten were struggling Spalding Town, who were handed a 4-0 home beating by Stamford Belvedere.

That theme continued with Sutton Bridge, who were walloped 7-0 at Eye United.

Down in Division Two, there was a day to forget for Spalding Town Reserves.

They were annihilated 16-0 at Rippingale and Folkingham as James Ferrow helped himself to five goals.

Long Sutton Athletic Reserves managed to pick up a point as they drew 1-1 at ten-man Stamford Belvedere Reserves.

South Holland sides enjoyed a better time of it in Division Three, with Holbeach Sports 4-0 winners over Wittering Reserves. Josh Ling, Luke Fox and Jack Cunningham were among the scorers.

Tydd Reserves also picked up a 4-3 success over Whittlesey A with Ant Bonnett, Ben Gibbons (2) and Cameron Dunn netting.

In Division Four, Holbeach Bank lost 8-0 at Stilton Reserves.
