Stamford Lions stormed into top spot in the Peterborough League Premier Division table for the first time in their club’s history with an emphatic 10-0 win over Warboys on Saturday.

James Sheehan’s side took full advantage of previous leaders Moulton Harrox being in cup action to take their place at the helm.

Tom Edwards gave Lions the lead after 16 minutes with Joe Lippett doubling the advantage 10 minutes later.

Top marksman Luke Ball got in on the goalscoring act after 34 minutes with Edwards and Dan Aust adding further goals before half-time.

The goal spree continued after the break with Edwards taking his personal tally to four with a quick-fire second half double.

Two goals in 11 minutes saw Ball complete his hat-trick with Tom Lees also on target for Lions who are now a point clear at the top, but Moulton Harrox do have two games in hand.

Stamford Lions Reserves suffered a 2-0 derby defeat at Ketton’s second string who had Paul Richardson and Nick Mainstone as their match-winners.

The victory capped a good day for Ketton as their first team were 2-1 Premier Division winners at Holbeach United Reserves with Seb Hood and Johnny Holmes on target.
