Jordan Keeble reaffirmed his status as one of the hottest striking talents in South Holland with an amazing ten-goal haul for Holbeach United under-16s on Sunday.

The young Tigers’ marksman went one better than last week, when he scored a treble hat-trick, to make it 19 goals in just two games.

It was the stand-out individual performance in Holbeach’s 16-0 win over Hungate Rovers under-16s.

Frontman Keeble bagged five in the first period, with Glen Woolmore, Sam Young, Ben Gibbons, Jake Hinton-Penta and Brandon Matthews (2) also notching to make it 11-0 at the half-time break.

A further five goals from the unstoppable Keeble after the break ensured it was his best-ever individual showing and eased the Tigers into the next round of the Knockout Cup.

• A man-of-the-match display from Ethan Withers and a treble from Dylan Evans guided Pinchbeck Predators under-11s to an impressive 5-2 win over Deeping Rangers Blue under-11s.

Although Deeping went ahead early on, Pinchbeck pulled level when the first of four Withers assists allowed Evans to net from a corner.

The duo combined again moments later when Evans buried another Withers cross.

Not done there, Pinchbeck went 3-1 ahead when Jack Forster headed in another Withers corner at the near post.

Rangers did pull one back after the break, but Pinchbeck striker Jack Petit soon latched onto a fine pass, beat a man and rifled his side 4-2 ahead.

The scoring was complete when left winger Evans lashed an effort into the roof of the net from just outside the box to complete his hat-trick.

• Depleted Spalding United Orange under-14s slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Parkway Eagles Red under-14s.

Despite a spirited team effort, Orange were always facing an uphill battle as they started with only ten men in very windy conditions.

With the wind at their backs in the first period, Parkway bagged both of their goals.

Spalding were much stronger after the interval and had their chances, but couldn’t manage a goal.

• Five-star Pinchbeck United under-14s breezed pastPeterborough side Phoenix FC under-14s 5-2.

Callum Clarke coolly slotted the opener, before a 20-yard strike hauled the hosts back on level terms.

United were soon back ahead though, when Tapi Shahwe’s super cross was buried by Josh Lawrence.

Not done there, Jack Withers showed great vision to pick out Kieran Hamilton, who fired home from 20 yards.

Although Phoenix pulled one back from a corner, Layton Maddison then produced the goal of the match to make it 4-2. Lawrence then nodded down to Shahwe to seal the win with a great strike.
