Hat-tricks in each half, first by Joe Gillan and then by substitute Kian Williams, shot HUCKNALL WARRIORS U13S into the final of the Young Elizabethan League’s Saturday Trophy.

Warriors raced to an emphatic 7-0 win over Breaston Park and now take on fellow Third Division high-fliers, Hyson Green Cavaliers, in the final at Hucknall’s Rolls-Royce Leisure ground on Saturday 16th May.

Gillan opened the scoring and soon fired in number two before Lewis Radford got on the scoresheet after his initial effort had struck a post. Gillan completed his treble before the break and then Williams repeated the dose after fine work by Jack Bradley, Radford and Camryn Walker.

And then Ernehale Colts went the same way in a match that Sports dominated with some fine football. Ciaran McBride struck twice, either side of a terrific volley by Jayden Goodman.
