Cambridge Ambassadors 4 Steeple Morden Reserves 1
FOLLOWING their cup defeat to Barrington Reserves last week, Steeple Morden Reserves suffered another disappointing result away to Cambridge Ambassadors despite an encouraging start to the match.
Morden took a lead for the first time this season when Mark Thorp collected the ball 35 yards from goal and with considerable assistance from the blustery weather floated a cross over the Ambassadors' 'keeper's head and in off the woodwork.
But Morden's joy was short-lived however, as they were behind less than 10 minutes later with goals from Oliver Smith and Justin Hayward.
Morden's Matthew Stubbs had an effort from distance saved well before John Birch increased the Ambassadors' lead to 3-1 on 25 minutes, and Hayward bagged his second of the game before half time.
Morden came out for the second half with the belief that they could still get something from the game.

Paul Geraghty and Thorp made way for Trevor Alexander and manager Andy Smith on the hour, and the battling Tom Pollard was replaced by Tom Holt late on.
Despite controlling possession for the vast majority of the half and a couple of good chances that should have been converted, Morden could not capitalise and were unable to reduce their deficit.
Steeple Morden Reserves: Tidey, Thorp (Alexander), Edwards, Geraghty (Smith), M Holt, Taylor, Carlton, Stubbs, Pollard (T Holt), Summers, McGee.
