The pacy striker took his Southsea United tally to a phenomenal 51 in just 21 matches with a four-goal show in a 14-0 Division 4 demolition job on AC Copnor.

It was the youngster’s 10th haul of three or more goals for Southsea this season, and he has only failed to score in two of his matches.

His goal haul is even more amazing when you consider a lot of Southsea’s post-lockdown matches have only been an hour long due to having to fit double headers into the fixture list.
