Godmanchester Rovers powered through the century barrier during their latest success last night.

Matt Clements’ promotion-chasers took their Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division goal tally for the season to 105 in a 6-1 drubbing of Swaffham Town at the David Wilson Homes Ground.

Young striker Luke Brown led the latest goal spree with a hat-trick while Micky Hyem struck twice. Tom Spark also found the net.

Rovers remain third in the standings, five points behind second-placed Stanway and 13 points adrift of table-topping reigning champions Norwich United. They have matches in hand on both of those teams.

There was an unwanted piece of footballing history created last night at the Riverside in Huntingdon.

AFC Barley Mow suffered their first-ever Cambs League defeat when going down 4-1 to Division 3B title rivals Upwell Town.

The loss arrived less than a week after the Barley boys had beaten the same opponents to win the John Ablett Cup and they meet again this Saturday in another league clash.
