There were plenty of fireworks from Somersham Town last Saturday.
Their 5-1 win against Fulbourn Institute Reserves launched them five places up the Kershaw Senior A Division standings.
Justin Ives set them on the way to victory when opening the scoring after just 28 seconds.
Ben Beardsley, Paul Knight, Jake Asby and Lee Ashton also struck to earn the locals their third win of the campaign.
Richard Cosbey enjoyed the best result of his Godmanchester Rovers Reserves reign.
Mark Darlow, Pete Southee and Lee Bavester struck to earn a 3-1 success against table-toppers Red Lodge in Kershaw Senior B Division.
“We’re a very young side and we’re really starting to make some progress,” said Cosbey, who took charge in the summer.

Cooper struck either side of the hour to settle a seven-goal thriller in Rangers’ favour. Robert Read also bagged a brace of his own in the first half as Bluntisham won 4-3.
Needingworth mounted a late comeback to snatch a 2-2 draw at Lakenheath Reserves.
An own goal in the final minute earned United a point after new signing Lewis Besley had launched their recovery from 2-0 down.
