STANWAY ROVERS manager Angelo Harrop described his side as “sensational” during their 6-0 romp at Haverhill Rovers.
The Hawthorns boss had called for a positive response after Saturday’s Thurlow Nunn League premier division defeat at the hands of Gorleston.
And he certainly got it, following a completely one-sided contest at the New Croft.
New signing Jordan Palmer, who recently joined from Heybridge Swifts, grabbed a hat-trick and he was joined on the score-sheet by Danny Slatter - with a 30-yard thunderbolt - Ray Turner and Richie Meadows.
“It was the best I’ve ever seen us play,” said a delighted Harrop.
“We were absolutely top drawer - literally sensational - and the contest was completely one-sided from start to finish."
Elsewhere, FC CLACTON manager Glenn Eldridge is adamant he can revive the club’s fortunes - when his depleted squad gets back to full-strength.
The Seasiders’ win-less start to the premier division season continued with Tuesday’s 5-1 defeat at home to Felixstowe & Walton.
However, Eldridge is convinced his side will start firing soon, when key players become available again.
“I hate to keep going on about people being injured and unavailable but it’s such a problem for me at the moment,” he said.
BRANTHAM ATHLETIC were pipped 1-0 by premier division leaders and near neighbours Hadleigh United.
