WOMBWELL Town goal machine Gavin Allott’s hot streak continued with manager Karl Rose pleased the rest of the team are supplying him with chances and chipping in themselves.
Allott, who was once bagging regularly for the now defunct Shaw Lane Aquaforce, scored four of the goals as Town smashed Ollerton Town 5-0 last Saturday in the league. The other came from Owen Birks.
They faced the same opposition in the NCEL Cup on Tuesday and won 6-0 with Allott sitting this one out.
The goals came from Rikki Paylor, Gadhafi Kiwanuka, Freddie Russell, Matthew Thornton, Kane Reece and Brodie Cooper.
Rose said: “He’s a big lad at six foot three and a handful. But he’s also a great lad and he will be the first to admit that he wouldn’t be getting the goals if the players behind him were not supplying.
“His conversion rate is great.
“He was the missing piece of the jigsaw for us and he has been at the top of his trade at this level for a long time.
“He has worked very hard on his game and I have worked with him at a few clubs.
“Without the hard work of the volunteers and the money that has gone into it improving facilities, we wouldn’t be able to bring someone like Gavin in. But he has bought into the club ethos too.
“The pleasing thing is that we are not a one-man band. We had six different scorers against Ollerton in the cup.”
Wombwell sit top of the Division One table with Rose pleased with progress.
He added: “At the start of the season I was content with just climatising at this level. But something has clicked. We are going to enjoy the journey but we are under no illusions that there is a long way still to go.”
