FOOTBALL: Caistor’s mixed fortunes
Caistor’s two football teams have experienced mixed fortunes this season, one topping the table and the other scrapping at the bottom.
The Saturday team, Caistor Tennyson, share the leadership of Division 3 of the East Lincolnshire Combination.
The club left the Grimsby League at the end of last season. They top the table in their new league after wins at Sutton on Sea,Ludford,Legbourne and FC Samuels from Louth.
The latest win came at North Somercotes on Saturday when they beat the village side 4-2. Goals came from Aaron Ford, Mike Kelly, Luke Clifford and through an own goal by a home defender.
Ford is the league’s top scorer with eight goals so far.
This Saturday Caistor are at home to Mablethorpe, kick off at Caistor Sports Ground is 2pm.
Caistor Rovers’ Sunday League side lie bottom of Grimsby League Division 2, but picked up their first point of the season on Sunday at home to Immingham FC.
Andrew Belt scored a first half goal when he was put through the middle and kept his composure to slot his shot neatly past the visiting keeper.
The visitors equalised when they built an attack of their own through the middle of the Rovers defence, the visiting striker slotting home.
Immingham were then awarded a penalty, but Andy French made a good save in the Caistor goal, diving to his left.
Stalemate then ensued, but the draw was enough to give Caistor their first point of the season.
