League round-up - Sept 6

Match reports from Divisions One and Two.


Docklands played their first league game and felt they did enough to get at least a point from the game but it was missed chances that cost them in the end against a more clinical side in Sutton Bridge who went on to win by three goals to one with goals by Ben Partridge (2) and veteran Nicky Scott new signing Harry Bennett scoring for Docklands.

Retreat took on Terrington in a very tight game with both teams sharing the points as the game ended 1-1 and Retreat getting their first point in Division One with Liam Bowley scoring for Retreat, and K Beetlestone finding the net for Terrington in the 60th minute.

Englands Hope played away at River Lane, where the pitches are a lot better than last season, against Globe Bowls Club and it was Globe that took the lead with a goal by Aaron Proctor but Englands hit back with a goal by Matthew Dawson, then just before half-time Timmy Childs put Globe ahead. In the second half Globe Bowls Club hit three quick goals by Ashley St John, Steven Parkes, and a second by Tim Childs to be in control but again Englands Hope hit back with two more goals by John Reedshaw and John Collins and were getting on top at 5-3 and pushing forward. However, this let in Globe to score two more to run out 7-3 winners.

Splinters travelled to Southery for the first time to play White Bell in a game that both sides had the chances to win but the game ended in a 2-2 draw. White Bell took the lead with Splinters' goals coming from Substitute Timmy Kavangh and an own goal. Michael Gray and Caran Pennock-Halpin scored for White Bells in what was a really good game.
