Saturday was a very positive day for CUP FC with the Reserves picking up a first victory of 2020, while results in the Kershaw Premier went in favour of the 1st team - who did not play as their match at West Wratting was postponed due to an unfit pitch.
It was a very solid and controlled performance from the Reserves claiming a 2 - 0 home win in Senior B against promotion challengers Eaton Socon Reserves. Mendes opened the scoring inside 15 minutes, before Townshend doubled the lead with less than 30 minutes played.
Further chances in the first and second half were missed to make the scoreline more comfortable. The visitors didn't take their opportunity to make it a nervy end to the match, with justice prevailing as a late penalty hit the post.
Both sides will be training tomorrow night, a 6.45pm start at the Cass, getting ready for the weekend's important matches. The 1sts make the short trip to neighbours and title challengers Cherry Hinton in the Kershaw Premier, while the Reserves host strugglers Wisbech St Mary Reserves in Senior B. Matches will kick off at 2pm.
