Priory Celtic’s senior side bounced back from defeat at Clifton by hitting fourth-placed Cotgrave for six on Sunday.

Cotgrave took lead when Mark Turner fired home after a goalmouth scramble, however in an end-to-end first-half Greg Wedge equalised for the home team with a stunning 30-yard volley.

Priory were in front before the break as Dec Smith’s looping header beat Cooper in the Cotgrave goal.

Priory came out showing great attacking flair in the second-half and scored three goals within the first 20 minutes.

Smith scored two to complete his hat-trick with Wedge scoring the fifth.

Cotgrave pulled one back through Gethyn Tustin but Priory added their sixth following a goalkeeping error as Wedge also completed his hat-trick.

The U11 girls once again put in a fantastic performance away at Holy Spirit and though they lost 6-4 they will take great satisfaction in the result – Bethany Garner scoring a stunning hat-trick with Hana Ahmed claiming the other.

The U12 girls saw off Toton Tigers 2-1 to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season, Chloe Stockton and Sophia Meakin amongst the scorers
