Newly-promoted Cleethorpes Town maintained their 100 per cent start to life in the Evo-Stik League South on Wednesday night with a 1-0 win against Stamford AFC at the Bradley Development Centre.

The Daniels travelled up with only one win to date, but gave a good account of themselves against a confident Clee outfit.

The breakthrough came just shy of the hour-mark when Liam Davis powered home a header from a good cross.

And that proved enough for Cleethorpes to record a seventh successive win at the higher level.

In contrast, Corby Town, relegated from the Premier Division last season, have found the going tough a league lower and were held to a 2-2 draw by another of the division`s new boys, Peterborough Sports.

A crowd of 326 saw Sports twice battle back from behind to secure a late draw.

The Steelmen led through a 12th minute Phil Trainer goal

The ChromaSports & Trophies United Counties League champions equalised in the 27th minute through David Femiola.

But 6 minutes before the break, Corby were back in front when the visiting `keeper Aaron Butcher came out to punch the ball but, in the process, flattened Sam Mulready and the referee awarded a penalty which the victim got up and duly converted.

It looked as though that was going to be enough – until the 88th minute when Josh Sanders popped up with Sports` equaliser.
