Foster’s was a good call for AFC H2O in a Hucknall derby against ATHLETICO T8’S in Premier Division One of the Notts Sunday Morning League.

Thirsty for goals, Ashley Foster provided the amber nectar in a 4-2 victory for the away side that lifted them to fifth in the table.

Foster crashed home all four of his side’s goals, with Ben Lewin and Max Thornley repleying for Athletico, who have now lost eight of their 11 games this season.

GOALS were also the order of the day in HUCKNALL TOWN SUNDAY’S Premier Section Cup quarter-final at home to Premier Premier Division rivals, Clumber. Unfortunately, no fewer than 12 of them flew into their net!

Town sank to a 12-4 defeat, despite strikes from Robert Needham, Tom Hubbard, Michael Temple and Mike Randall.

The scorers for resurgent and rampant Clumbert were Said Said, who smashed five, Cashel Walters (2), Jahred Russell, Joseph Onwughaly, Wes Burke, McKenna Daniels-Partonn and Richard Scott.

BACK to Premier One, and two more Hucknall sides, THE EMPIRE and BARFLYS H2O, suffered defeats.

Empire fell 2-0 away to improving Top Valley United, whose goals were scored by Dave Warden and Scott Drake.

While Barflys had no answer to the firepower of title-chasing Robin Hood, who swept to the top of the table with a 6-1 victory.

Keistan Williams hit the net for Flys, but the visitors stretched their unbeaten record this term to ten matches thanks to four goals from Adam Parkinson and one apiece from Luke Smithson and Adam Swietlinski.

A PENALTY shootout dumped BESTWOOD MINERS WELFARE out of the Senior Section Cup after a keenly-fought local derby against divisional rivals Bestwood FC had finished 3-3 at the end of extra-time.

Alex Carr, Reece Knight and Adam Price-Henson netted for the home team before they lost the shootout 4-3.

THE PROMOTION push by THE NABB INN received a boost with a 4-2 win at home to bottom-of-the-table Beeston Biz in Senior Division Two.

Nabb’s marksmen were Shane Brown, Karmane McIndoe, Shaun Monk and Gaz Wainwright.

FOUR goals were also netted by AFC DOWHAN in Senior Division Three. But they had to share the spoils away to Nags Head Bobbers Mill, despite strikes from Matt Murphy, Luke Parkin, Tom Coupe and Aaron Cotterill.
