Former Clanfield striker Potter now has six goals in two matches after his four-goal show in Mob’s opening 12-2 victory over Rowner.

Rowner were on the receiving end of another heavy beating when they crashed 9-0 to Wymering.

Brad White - who scored over 40 goals for Wymering last term - led the way with a hat-trick. Hayden (2), McIntosh, Audin, Smith and Brett Farley were also on target.

Ollie Duncan netted twice as Portchester Rovers defeated Segensworth 4-2.

Goals from Whitcombe, Bailey and Singh gave Meon Milton a 3-2 victory at Burrfields, who replied through Jordan Shuttlesworth and Palmer.

A Jay Robinson double gave Carberry a 2-2 draw against Horndean United, who replied through Peters and Jamieson.

Two of the three sides with a 100 per cent record, Meon and Mob, meet this weekend.
