AFC Emneth in seventh heaven at top of Cambridgeshire County League Senior A

AFC Emneth are flying high at the top of the Cambridgeshire County League Senior A and made it seven wins from seven with a thumping 6-1 victory at Hundon.

The Honey Badgers took the lead when a delicate chipped pass over the defence from Niall Burton was latched on to and fired home by striker Toby Allen.

Hundon equalised after a scramble in the box and it was 1-1 at the break.

But Emneth retook the lead in the 50th minute when a ball from Allen was flicked on by Niall Burton to Brendan Burton, who lobbed the keeper superbly from 30 yards.

A fantastic move between Josh Williams and Tom Hinton ended in Allen firing home his second to make it 3-1 and it was soon four when Williams set up Allen to curl home his hat-trick and his ninth of the season in just six games.

There was still more to come, however, when a ball straight through the middle was latched on to by last season's top scorer Joe Reed, who rounded the keeper and tapped home. Finally, Jake Miller slotted in Reed to score his second.

Outwell Swifts are top of 3B with six wins from six after a 2-1 victory at Hemingfords United A, Jack Brand and Adan-Jay Lewis' 15th in seven games doing the damage.

Hot on their heels with five wins from five are AFC Emneth Reserves, who thrashed Fenstanton Reserves 5-1.

The visitors deservedly scored first, but Jesse Hemmings equalised with a thumping angled effort to make it 1-1 at half time.

Ben Garner made it 2-1 from the spot after a foul on Bradley Kennedy and Ryan Dennis then scored from distance for the third.

Jamie Leet then dinked home a cheeky penalty after being brought down himself, and Hemmings rocketed home his second to make it 5-1.

In the Peterborough League Division Three Sutton Bridge United won 3-1 at Deeping Rangers Development in Division Three, Jack Lally, Craig Pack and Matthew Wayman scoring.
