THE last week has seen the Blues lose at home against total challengers Soham Town Rangers then travel away to add further gloom to struggling, relegation threatened Newmarket Town.

Against Soham the Blues could have little complaints against a side who clearly showed why they hold such a lofty position. Two goals up at the break the visitors moved into a three goal lead early in the second period before Neil Plaskett reduced the arrears. Although they improved in the second period the Blues could not further reduce the arrears whilst the visitors missed opportunities to add to their tally.

Prior to the game Bradley Hough had been presented with the Gary Bennett Driving School Player of the Month award for March.

Against relegation threatened Newmarket the Blues looked the better side throughout and took the points with a 4-2 victory. After falling behind the Blues levelled through Dale Cockrill to send the sides in all square at the interval. The second half saw Gary McGee put the Blues ahead only to see the lead cancelled out by the Jockeys. McGee again put the Town ahead with Ally McKenna's late header sealed the victory.

The Town went into both games without Jamie Godbold as he prepared for, and recovered from, taking part in the London Marathon

The Blues have a day off this weekend before entertaining Wisbech Town on Tuesday.

The Reserves are at home to Hindringham tomorrow (Saturday) with the slightly later kick off time of 3pm.
