The Huntingdon United boss has seen his new-look squad start the Cambs League Division 1B campaign with a bang.

They have recorded back-to-back 4-0 successes - the second of which arrived in a local derby last Saturday against St Ives Rangers.

Two of Milton’s new recruits - former non-league stars Jamie Blackwell and Carl Foreman - were among the goalscorers. Blackwell’s brother, Darren, and last season’s top-scorer, Dom Everett, also found the net.

Milton said: “We’ve made some good additions to the squad and started the season well.
