Top Bloke - Kyle Ludlow
Six goals is the most I've seen from one player in a game. After the match I told him he had beating Alan Shearer’s 5 goal record. (which he seemed quite pleased about)

There was plenty of debate on the whereabouts of last night's ground bagging destination. I got up in the morning expecting to go to Dronfield, but by the time I got down to Houghton-le-Spring, that had changed to Irlam in the NWCL. After getting picked up at 3pm by Katie & Lee we discussed it further and decided to go for the pending goal fest at Ollerton Town instead. It turned out to be an ace decision and topped off a great night which was preceded by a ‘Spoons tea at the Red Lion in Doncaster.
Also at the game was Squad#4 Jack Warner and also Filly member A30 Chris Berezai, who took a picture of the four of us sporting our splendid 100FgC hats. I was back home at twenty minutes past midnight, tired, but happy to have witnessed two of my personal match stats smashed!
