A HAT-TRICK from Chris Hartley and four from Harry Cotton helped Spartans U8s to a convincing 8-0 win against Priory R.
In the early stages of the game, both teams competed well in an entertaining opening, but Spartans started to find space and room, courtesy of some pin-point passing.
Brampton opened the scoring when Rhys Everett showed excellent awareness at the back before putting a fine ball through to Cotton on the left who crossed for Hartley to neatly tuck away the first of a superb trio of goals.
After the break, Cotton found the net four times with Luke Fennell adding another after good work by Max Bradshaw Clifford.

RANGERS U14s played top of the table Ely City and, for the second game in a row, went down to a goal in the last minute of the game.
The clash between the two top teams in the league was an exciting one, with chances at both ends.
Bluntisham started quicker and a superb free kick by Edward Manchett was excellently saved by the keeper.
Ely applied some pressure themselves and only good play from the composed pair of Luke Robinson and Ollie Gautrey kept them at bay.
Bluntisham eventually made their superior possession count when Dan Sterna finished with style to give Bluntisham a 1-0 lead.
With one minute to go, Ely were awarded a free kick out on the right and from the resultant kick the ball evaded everybody and ended in the back of the net to make the final score 1-1.
DESPITE being without their regular central midfielder and losing their left back to injury after five minutes, Rangers U13s edged out Hornets to go back to the top of the table.
Histon were on top in a keenly contested first half but were unable to find a way through the strong Rangers defence.
After the break, Blunty showed more going forward with Robbie Read and Dominic Richardson linking well down the left and Tyler Manly just failing to get his toe on a couple of through balls.
As the game wore on it looked as though both teams would have to settle for a point but with two minutes left on the clock, Rangers broke down the right with Jack Gibbs whose low cross was helped on by Alex White, the ball cannoned off a Histon defender and fell to Robbie Read who controlled the ball and coolly slotted into the bottom corner to give Blunty the three points.
Rangers MoM was Adam Lee, who gave an outstanding performance filling in at left back for the injured Jonny Slater.
THE U12s a slumped to a 6-0 home defeat against Haverhill on Sunday at the Millenium, Somersham.
With the game finely balanced at 0-0 going into half-time, a dubious decision by the linesman was to cost Blunty dear when Haverhill took advantage to take a 1-0 lead into the break.
Blunty ploughed forward in search of an equaliser, but were caught out by the strong team from Suffolk, with the Haverhill boys converting all their chances.
Rangers produced plenty of good football but, on the day, just didn't have the firepower in the final third to trouble the Haverhill goal.
THE U9As started well by taking an early lead, with a goal from Kieran Carter in a friendly game against Stretham Sporting.
Stretham battled back to 1-1 at the break with some good counter attacking football. Blunty created chances but the Stretham goalkeeper was keeping them in the game, as they broke away to take a 2-1 lead.
Rangers kept on battling, with two chances cleared off the line. The post denied them another goal and the Blunty boys were getting frustrated with themselves as Stretham broke away with another counter attacking move to win 3-1 on the day.
THE U8As were narrowly beaten by a determined Willingham Wolves side. Blunty defended well in the first period and managed to restrict a powerful Willingham attack to only one goal.
In the second period, Rangers created many chances but found the Wolves keeper in inspired form. However, MoM Christian Wiggins-Browne slid in to score to draw Rangers level. Rangers pressed again but Willingham scored with a great long range strike to retake the lead. Harry Taylor replied almost immediately for Blunty with an opportunist strike from distance before a frantic last period saw Willingham snatch victory with a scrambled goal.
THE U13 Harriers swept away Willingham Wolves 3-1, with a great first half performance to progress to the second round of the cup competition.
Harriers' PoM, Ellen Clark, caused numerous problems for Willingham Wolves with her strong running. Miquela McDonald opened the scoring after five minutes with a strong run and shot. Molly Avery scored a good goal when she picked up a loose ball on the left hand side of the Willingham Wolves penalty area and slotted the ball away.
Wolves scored a consolation goal when a dangerous cross took a deflection off Harriers defender Lianne Griffiths and this was the last action of the game. Final score to The Harriers 3-1.

A DISAPPOINTING performance from the U10 Hawks saw them defeated 1-0 by K C Cougars. In a tight game, the Hawks never really got going and the lack of passing play meant they created few chances on goal.
The Cougars broke the deadlock late in the first half when the Hawks' goalkeeper was beaten at the near post and that was to be the only goal of the game.
MoM for the Hawks went to Seth Masters for a good defensive performance.
SQUAD: Ben Burton, Joe Cowles, Josh Draper, Alex Jewel, Matt Luscombe, Seth Masters, Lewis Medlow, Jordan Perry, Finn Salier, Will Starkey.
