Chatteris Town manager Ashley Taylor celebrated the biggest win of his career as they put NINE goals past Paxton.

Craig Gillies carried on his phenomenal scoring run with a hat-trick, there were doubles for Josh Joyce and Gary Smith, and goals for Anton Kaval and Jermaine Watson, in the 9-0 Kershaw Semior A win.

Taylor said: “Paxton lost their first league game last week so I emphasised to the lads that we must get the first goal in the game which we did in five minutes.

“Once we scored there was no looking back and we took advantage of their lack of confidence. We were ruthless and to be honest it could have been a lot more.

“Right now the club is looking strong. We have introduced a fourth team and for the first time in ages we now have a reserve team where I can rely on any of those players to step up to the first team including some talented under 18s players.

“Competition for places is strong so this only has a positive effect on the players performances as they want to keep their place in the team.”

However, the Lilies are still five points adrift of leaders Outwell Swifts, who made it seven wins from seven with a 3-1 win at Ely City Reserves. Sam Hanslip, Luke Plumb and Stan Brown got the goals.

LADIES FOOTBALL

Park Ladies are through to the second round of the League Cup with a 3-1 win at Milton Ladies.

Park took a deserved lead which came from a lovely piece on inter play in the middle before the ball was shifted out to the left for Ward to cut inside her defender and from 25 yards unleash a rocket which clipped the underside of the bar before going in.

Park’s second followed on 35 minutes. A defensive block fell to Anderson who sent a 40-yard ball down the throat off the Milton defence. Newell controlled, burst passed the last defender and slotted coolly past the keeper.

In the second half, the hosts caught Park sleeping and scored with a clean low strike across the keeper. But Park regrouped and Newell made it three - skipping past the last defender for scroing with a low shot.
