Sunday football: Lamplighter hit by sense of deja-vu
TOM Young and Dave Humphries both netted hat-tricks as Blacksmiths Arms ran riot against Lamplighter – for the second time this season.
Blacksmiths thrashed the Cheadle-based side 9-1 on the opening day of the Division Three season and went two better this time around, racking up an 11-1 victory.
Young, who had scored twice on the previous occasion, and Humphries, who had bagged one, led the charge, while Ben Cross and Matt Bloor grabbed doubles.
An own goal completed the thrashing, with Lamplighter now having shipped 35 goals in their first four games.
