Hunts Senior Cup ---
St Neots Town 6-0 Alconbury
ST NEOTS Town advanced to the semi-finals of the Hunts Senior Cup with a comfortable win as Liam Harrold extended his scoring record to seven goals in three games.
Peterborough Premier League side Alconbury were looking to ground the in-form UCL leaders, but Barry Gregory's men found Saints in uncompromising form.
With manager Steve Lomas completing a Uefa Pro Licence training course, recently-appointed assistant Dennis Greene took charge of the team, but despite the change in the dugout there was no change on the pitch as Neots made it four wins from four in February.
Harrold bagged the first two goals, before strike partner Dan Jacobs killed the game before half time with the third. Tony Scully's second-half free-kick made it four before Harrold capped his hat-trick and Michael Hyem completed the rout.

Alconbury general manager Mick Tarft paid tribute to the Peterborough League side, but said they had been second-best.
"We conceded two early second half goals to go five down and we could have capitulated but the lads stuck at their task and played well against a very good team. St Neots fully deserve their place in the next round.
"At times we probably tried to play too much passing football given the conditions. Players got caught out with the ball not travelling, but it was a good learning curve for our young team and should put us in good shape for the future.
