AFTER scoring four goals without reply in their previous outing, Ponteland United Reserves continued to find the net with ease on Saturday.

United’s second string hit Red House Farm for six in a comprehensive 6-0 victory in Northern Alliance Development Division.

The result was no surprise in the top versus bottom encounter, but the manner in which the league leaders went about their task was impressive.

The Black and Whites got off to a flyer, and were 2-0 up after just four minutes, with Sean McDonald and Jordan Allin registering.

Just after the half hour mark, Toy Spratt added a third, and in doing so, scored his second goal in as many weeks.

With the game already beyond Red House Farm, Ponteland were in no mood to take their feet off the gas.

Substitute Daniel Troughton went on to score a memorable hat-trick, with a goal on 45 minutes followed by another on 52 minutes, and a third in the closing stages of the game.

Despite Troughton’s exploits, Allin was named man of the match. Ponteland are now the division’s highest scorers with 68 goals in 20 games.

On Saturday, they travel to ninth placed Newcastle East End Reserves in another league encounter.
