HOME debuts do not come much better than Matthew Glass’s for Whittlesford on Saturday.

Leading the line for second-ever time the striker pulled off a superb performance to net four goals during a six-one thrashing of Kershaw Premier Division basement club Hundon.

Whilst Glass, formally of Fulborn, will take the headlines for a virtuoso display, he was ably supported by a confident-looking Whittlesford who are sitting quietly mid-table with a few games in hand and could push towards the top over the coming weeks.

Matthew Bell scored the other two goals as United ran amok at The Lawn, the only blemish was a yellow card for the ever-impressive Martin Turner.

It was two-nil at half time and comfortable and United came out and showed the home supporters what they can do with a devastating display of finishing.

Joint player/manager Toby Dawson was pleased with his players’ efforts and has stepped up training this week with a premier league cup quarter final clash on the way against Ely City reserves.

“We have no reserve games this week so we have the entire squad to pick from,” he said. “This obviously gives us more strength and depth and we are eager for Saturday to come.

“We want to do well in the cup this year and we are very hopeful that we can turn Ely over and progress to the semi finals”.

Ely are placed one position above their cup rivals and will also fancy their chances. Both teams are in good form though and the clash should be one to savour.

Kick off is at 1.45pm.
