Huntingdon Town saved their best until last yesterday – by recording their biggest win of the United Counties League Division One season in their final home fixture.
The floodgates were well and truly opened at Jubilee Park as Jimmy Brattan’s men thumped Melton Town 7-0.
Five of the goals arrived in the first half with Liam Rodden’s opener being quickly followed by a Jonny Hall header. A Corey Kingston brace then sandwiched a Richard Baines effort.
Baines struck again in the second period before James Seymour completed a high-scoring success.
Eynesbury stretched their unbeaten United Counties League Premier Division run to eight matches with a smooth away success.
