....in their second season as members of the Northants Senior Youth League.

Diamonds now possess a healthy ten-point lead at the top of the West Division after hammering both landlords Wellingborough Town and Cogenhoe United in their latest fixtures.

And leading the way is striker Jake Reynolds, who completed back-to-back hat-tricks.

He notched a triple against the Doughboys, and along with Zach Farden and Zak Moon, helped ease the Diamonds to a 5-2 success – with Pawel Aurzandniczek and Harry Ware replying for the `visitors`.

Reynolds then scored three more as Diamonds hammered Cogenhoe United 6-1, again at the Dog & Duck, with Farden, Blake Helsdown and Matty Smith also on target, with Luke Emery netting a consolation for the reigning West Division champions.

Yaxley`s lead in the East Division is five points as they maintained their unbeaten record.

Jake Sansby and Jake Gear each bagged a brace as third-placed S&L were beaten 4-1 at Occupation Road – Ryan Finnegan replying.

That outcome was total reverse of the young Foundrymen`s previous outing when they beat Stamford AFC by the same scoreline – again at home.

Ryan and Colin Finnegan, Kieran Malone and Conor Doncan were the hosts` on target.

Eynesbury Rovers are second in the East section after completing 2-0 wins at Rushden & Higham United and at Desborough Town.

Thrapston had a mixed week – enjoying a fine 2-1 win at Kiln Park against Kettering FC, but then losing 3-1 at AFC Kempston.

Against the newly-formed Red Kites, Thrapston came back from being a Lewis Carpenter goal down to win, courtesy of goals from Luke Stevens and a late Elliott Rowe effort, and could even afford the luxury of missing a penalty!

Jake Hankins was on target for the visitors at Hillgrounds, but Kempston responded with goals from Charisma Agyemang with two and Charlie Connelly.

Kettering`s next outing saw them gain a late point in and a 1-1 draw at Stamford, thanks to an 85th minute Jack Ash effort.

Elsewhere in the East section, Desborough won the derby at Rothwell Corinthians 2-1.

In the West, Woodford United won 2-0 at Whitworth, Irchester United shared a 1-1 draw at home against Northampton Spencer, with Cordell Francois-Noel`s effort being cancelled out by Callum Peach for Spencer, while Daventry Town inflicted a 6-3 defeat on Oxford City, with Taylor Orosz helping himself to four goals.

City recovered a little in their next outing, sharing a 3-3 draw at home against Cogenhoe United.
