New signing Chris Francis hit a hat-trick in his full debut to fire Eynesbury Rovers into the semi-finals of the Hunts Senior Cup last night.
Rovers thumped Huntingdon 7-3 in a 10-goal thriller at Hall Road which also featured double-strikes from Lee Bassett and Matty Bannister.
Jack Jefferson struck twice and Aaron Petty also found the net for Huntingdon as they roared back from 4-0 down to trail 4-3 early in the second half, but Rovers regained the upper hand.
Godmanchester Rovers goal machine James Hall hit a hat-trick for the second time in four days as they breezed to Thurlow Nunn League Challenge Cup success.
The Premier Division title-chasers triumphed 7-0 at First Division strugglers Cornard in the opening round.
Hall made an early breakthrough before defender Taylor Parr doubled their advantage on the half-hour.
Their passage was secured by three goals in the space of eight minutes early in the second half – a Hall penalty, a Tom Spark strike and another from Hall as he completed an incredible fourth treble of the season so far.
