Deeping United bounced back to winning ways by rediscovering their goal touch in Saturday's victory over FC Hampton Reserves.

They had lost their last two games without a scoring goal but netted six times without reply on Saturday in the Peterborough League Division Three match.

Daryn Whiteman struck twice for United with the returning Nathan Smith, Ben Catanach, Steve Jucikas and Scott Spearink also on target.

Joint boss Ian Abbott said: "Having Nathan back with us was a massive bonus and he made a big difference. He's dynamic and makes things happen.

"We had pace going forwards again with Jake Lyon on the other wing which was a big thing for us.

"It was good to get a win because it has been a testing time for us over the last couple of weeks."

It took United just three minutes to break the deadlock as Whiteman made the most of his new attacking midfield role.

Smith - who has been playing for Blackstones in recent weeks - burst down the wing and crossed for Whiteman who volleyed home into the roof of the net.

The early goal settled Deeping down but it took them until the 27th minute to double their lead as Jucikas squared the ball across the face of goal for Catanach to convert.

They continued to create chances but were unable to add to their tally before the half-time break.

A third goal did then arrive four minutes into the second period as Lyon produced some great work down the left-hand side before picking out Jucikas to apply a tidy finish.

Three further goals in nine minutes then sealed the success as United made some changes which paid off.

Jorge Barbosa was moved into midfield and he pinged a diagonal pass which picked out Smith who teed up Whiteman and his first-time cross was headed into the bottom corner by substitute Spearink for United's goal of the game.

Smith then made it five with 20 minutes remaining as he was sent clear by Barbosa's pass before finishing with aplomb.

Whiteman completed the scoring with his second goal and United's sixth with Smith this time the provider.

Stamford Bels saw their first half advantage wiped out in a 4-1 home defeat against Moulton Harrox in the Premier Division.

Kieran Duffy-Weekes had given Bels the lead against a Moulton side who then had striker Josh Ford sent off shortly after Ash Coddington had equalised for the visitors.

Bels goalkeeper Keenan Murphy saved a Dec Earth penalty early in the second half before Harrox hit three quick-fire goals through new signing Billy Smith, Gary Chappell and Earth to seal a 4-1 success.
