A fantastic hat-trick by Ben Stanley spearheaded a superb 8-3 victory by HUCKNALL SPORTS UNDER-10S RED against Toton Tigers in the Young Elizabethan League.

Sports feared a stiff test after Toton’s win over the best team in the division the previous week. But despite going a goal down, Sports romped to their fifth success on the trot.

They were 4-1 up by the interval thanks to Stanley heading home from a corner, Sam Watson blasting home a mighty volley and Rufus Astle and William ‘Spike’ Bird adding further goals.

Stanley slotted in number five, Bradley Mee lobbed the ‘keeper and Astle struck again. Toton pulled two back, but Stanley had ther last word with an easy tap-in.
