Hemingfords United hot-shot Jack Jefferson made quite an impact to launch his side off the bottom of the Kershaw Premier Division last Saturday.
The teenage ace hit a second-half hat-trick in his first Cambs League appearance of the season to inspire a 3-1 success at Fulbourn Institute – a result which snapped a run of three successive defeats.
“Having Jack back after holiday really helped,” said new Hemingfords boss Matt Peacey. “He is a goalscorer and that’s something we hadn’t been doing enough.
“We also brought in young centre back Sam Stevenson and he produced a man-of-the-match performance at only 17 years of age.”
There was a fine goalscoring feat in Kershaw Senior B Division as well last Saturday. It came from Bluntisham Rangers man John Flack, who hit four of his side’s goals in a 5-1 drubbing of Cambridge University Press Reserves as they collected a first win of the new season.
