Stanton Ilkeston U14 made it four wins out of four in all competitions as they moved up to second in the table with a 6-0 win over Riverside.

After a tight opening ten minutes Stanton finally made the breakthrough when Regan Atkinson neatly steered home at the feet of the keeper.

Five minutes late Kairan Bryce-Moore doubled the lead, slotting home after good work from Adam Parsons and Daniel Stokes on the right.

Atkinson had another effort saved well by the keeper before Dylan Duke hit one over.

At the other end the Ironmen remained solid and Bradley Mitchell, with some excellently timed challenges and good covering from Harry Foster, Harvey Bull and William Ferguson, meant Stanton carried a two goal lead into the break.

A good strong first half was bettered by a four goal blitz from the visitors in the second.

Charlie Roach got in on the act, side footing home from ten yards and then doubled his tally for the game and for the season after Riverside gave away a softy penalty for handball.

Stanton grew in confidence and began to dominate in all areas of the pitch.

And, after a delightful through ball from Roach, Stokes nearly had his name on the scoresheet but dragged his shot agonisingly wide.

Stanton soon did make it five with the ever cool Bryce-Moore netting his second.

Atkinson completed the rout, smashing home from just inside the area.
