JFC Manton took all three points from a comfortable victory over Langold Old Boys in Worksop Sunday League’s Division One last weekend.

The visitors were apparently given a pre match lift when former manager Paul Illingworth graced the game with his presence and his inspirational team talk seemed to do the job.

A Thomas Mullen free-kick and an Ado White strike had JFC two goals in front within the opening minutes.

Mullen missed a what can only be called a sitter when through on goal before Man of the Match James Hall headed home a corner to make it 3-0 at the break.

The dominance continued in the second period.

Daniel Tyack was solid at left back while skipper Matty Thompson was pulling the strings in midfield.

Matthew Button got the fourth while Mullen got a brace when bagging the fifth from close range.

JFC now sit third in the Division One table, four points behind leaders Worksop Borough, who have also played seven games.

Division Two had all games postponed, which ruined Daniel Wiltshire’s debut for Shireoaks Sports, as the prolific striker put pen to paper with them in the week.

in Division Three Langold Lakeside and Woodsetts Welfae picked up comfortable wins to keep in a battle for the title.

FC United of Carlton overcame Swan FC 3-1.
