AFTER a major set back with defeat to Great Shelford Reserves last week, Melbourn bounced back in style by hammering lowly Whittlesford.

Goal machine Kris Watters opened his team's account with two goals in the first 10 minutes - the first a header after bravely challenging the goalkeeper on a corner and the second straight from the restart when Ben Fox won the ball and hit a pass to Watters who beat the keeper to a 50-50 challenge.

Melbourn made it three on the half hour mark when a cleared corner fell to man-of-the-match Andy Richardson in his own half who played the ball to Andrew Morris before running 40 yards to collect the return and finishing neatly for a well deserved goal.

And a fourth came just before half time, with Morris this time the scorer following a good run through the heart of the Whittlesford defence.

Melbourn's second half was every bit as good as their first, although they scored one goal less.

Watters scored his 40th of the season when he ran onto a loose ball following a collision between Richardson and the Whittlesford keeper to complete his hat trick and he then scored his fourth 10 minutes from time when a deep free kick into the box by Andrew Gray found his head and then found the net.

The game was round up by Morris after some fine play by Watters and substitute Stuart Collen had left the keeper stranded.

Melbourn: Huzzey; Patman, A Gray, Bryan, Clarke; Richardson, Fox (Hill), J Gray (Collen); Wright (Wagstaff), Watters.
