Chatteris Town boss Ashley Taylor has heaped praise on another of the club’s young talents after he had a starring role in the Lilies’ most recent Kershaw Premier Division victory.

The Lilies tied up their second straight league win with a routine 3-0 win over Foxton on Saturday thanks to a double from Craig Gillies and a debut goal from 17-year-old Matthew Walshe.

The youngster also set up Gillies for his second goal, and Taylor believes he has a bright future ahead of him.

“What a debut for the young lad,” he said.

“He scored with his first touch and set up our third goal. It was a great debut but I told him afterwards that the hard work starts now.”

Saturday was also Taylor’s last home game as Lilies manager, and he was pleased to go out on a high.

“Our home record has been good since I took over and it was good to see a lot of fans supporting us for our last home game,” he said.

“It was nice to go out with a 3-0 win.”

The Lilies travel to Linton Granta on Saturday afternoon (3pm).
