King’s Lynn Sunday League round-up: Wisbech CP8’s comeback win keeps up their fine start

Wisbech CP8 kept up their early season form by coming from behind to win 4-2 away at Pott Row Old Boys.

Gavin Proctor and Matty Anderson had given Row a 2-0 lead before Shaun Simpson's brace and goals from Sam Murphy and Wayne Morton gave newly-formed CP8 the win.

The Wisbech side's victory, their third in four games, moved them up to second in Division One ahead of England's Hope - who have played one game less and were without a match on Sunday.

Chilvers got back to winning way with an emphatic 8-2 win against struggling March Saracens. Joe Jackson notched a hat-trick, Mikey Woodhouse scored twice while Liam Bowley, David Yallop and Louis Gaughran also netted. Allan Setchell and Dwyane Moore replied for Saracens.

Lynn Napier are still searching for their first win of the campaign after drawing 2-2 at home to White Bell. Michael Ellwood and Sam Moses netted for The Nap but John Murphy's brace denied them all three points.
