LITLINGTON went goal crazy at the weekend as they put seven past bottom side Steeple Bumpstead Reserves.

Paul Harris set the ball rolling, latching on to Liam Butler's pass before rounding his marker and drilling into the bottom left hand corner.

This opened the floodgates and it wasn't long before Athletic doubled their tally.

James Weir chipped a delightful ball into the path of James Evans who tapped home and it was 3-0 when Weir drilled home from Harris' cut back. Kieran Butler was introduced at half time but Litlington received a set back when Steeple Bumpstead pulled one back straight from the kick off.

It didn't take long for Athletic to re-establish their three goal cushion. Kieran Butler received a pass from brother Liam, ran at the Bumpstead defence and laid the ball off to Marco who rounded his marker and finished smartly.

It was then Kieran Butler's turn to get his name on the scoresheet with a great individual goal.

The substitute doubled his tally with a tap in to make it 5-1.

Marco grabbed the sixth blasting home from a tight angle and with only two minutes remaining, Harris completed the scoring picking up his own flick and smashing the ball home from inside the area.
