Holbeach United moved up to fourth in the United Counties League Premier Division table last night (April 7) when cruising to a 5-1 win at bottom-of-the-table Huntingdon.

Jack Smith’s goal four minutes into the second half wrapped up the points for the visitors and Ford took his season’s goal tally to 23 with his hat-trick goal three minutes before the hour.

Giuliano Staffieri scored a Huntingdon consolation after 65 minutes.

Holbeach had the last word with a goal from assistant manager Andy Tidswell after 72 minutes.
