More news, no ads


Stamford Bels stretched their unbeaten run in the Peterborough League Premier Division to seven games with a convincing 5-1 success over Long Sutton on Saturday.

Josh Edmondson bagged a brace with Louie Roberts, Nathan Law and Josh Randall also on target for Bels who dominated the contest at Welland Academy.

They took the lead when the ever-dangerous Randall whipped in a cross for Law to give the hosts an early advantage.

The goalscorer was then forced off with a hamstring injury and was replaced by Bels player-boss Lewis Morley who had a hand in their second goal.

Morley's corner found the head of Edmondson whose effort brought a superb save from the Long Sutton keeper to force another setpiece.

This time Dave Atkinson was picked out from the corner and he squared the ball for Roberts to fire home a superb finish.

Bels added a third goal before half-time when Randall again beat his man and this time found Edmondson who flicked home his finish into the bottom corner.

The scoring continued after the break when Scott Toomey set off on a driving run before pulling his pass back for Edmondson to double his tally with Bels' fourth goal.

Randall rounded off the home side's scoring by rifling a shot into the roof of the net from a tight angle after a mazy run.

Sutton struck a late consolation through Jack Thomas but never seriously threatened to end Bels' fine run which will be tested this weekend when they travel to second-placed Stilton.

Player manager Morley said: "It was a very professional performance from start to finish. Everyone knew their jobs and stuck to the task superbly.

"To go seven games unbeaten is a huge achievement and the team we have now put together have really clicked as a group. Josh Edmondson was again superb as well as Josh Randall.

"We now go to title contenders Stilton on Saturday which is a huge game for us and will show us where we are against a top side."
