Blackstones blasted five goals for the third successive Saturday as they bashed basement boys S&L Corby.

The 5-0 home success at the ALH Recruitment Stadium moved Blackstones into fourth place in Division One of the United Counties League as they took their goal tally to 18 in four league games since of the appointment of co-bosses Lee Clarke and Daniel French.

Ben Easson put Stones ahead after just 10 minutes of Saturday’s clash with Clarke doubling his side’s advantage eight minutes later.

Clarke’s second and Blackstones’ third eight minutes before half-time took the player manager’s personal tally to six goals in four games and put the home side in control of the contest.

Josh Edmondson then got his first goal for Blackstones with 10 minutes remaining before Jack Bates completed the scoring after 82 minutes.

Stones are next in action on Friday night when they travel to face table-topping Pinchbeck United.

Oakham United went down to a 5-0 away defeat at high-flying Buckingham Town.

They are in derby action on Tuesday night when they host Melton Town at Lonsdale Meadow (7.45pm).
