Sports hit seven and top of table


Hucknall Sports Under 16s Reds went top of the Notts Youth League Under-16s Division Two after a 7-1 win at Toton — their 13th successive victory.

Sports’ last match is against third-placed Eastwood Community, but they require chasing teams to drop points to lift the title.

Sports took the lead following a good move involving three players and a fine turn and finish by Rob Sherwood.

Liam Cartledge made it 2-0 before half-time.

In the second half Sports were rewarded for good attacking play with five further goals.

Only a missed re-taken penalty and good saves denied then double figures.

Travis Shooter (2) and Oscar Ridley were on target and Cartledge completed his hat-trick.
