Godmanchester Rovers clinched a second successive runners-up finish in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division last night.

A 7-0 drubbing of Kirkley & Pakefield at a snowy David Wilson Homes Ground clinched second spot with a game to spare.

It also provided an 18th victory during a 19-match unbeaten league run stretching back to December.

Rovers took command with two goals in the space of three minutes as Luke Brown’s opener was quickly followed by a Micky Hyem effort.

And they effectively sealed their latest success courtesy of another quick double just before half-time as captain Taylor Parr’s third goal was followed by a Brown penalty.

But Rovers weren’t about to take it easy in a second half played in the most unseasonal of weather.

Hyem struck seconds after the restart before Parr followed suit in adding his second of the night.
