Double delight: Lavin on target in 3-2 win

Darryl Lee praised his South Manchester Sports side after they made it 10 wins from 10 with a 3-2 victory over Saints.

Two goals from Adam Lavin and a Laurence Newman strike helped the league leaders maintain their excellent start to the season.

Boss Lee is now targeting Sunday's Handicup semi-final against Village.

"To get to Christmas with a 100 per cent record after 10 league games and one cup game is unusual and something I have never seen despite 34 years in senior football," said Lee.

"I've heard a lot said about the league we're in but nothing was said last year when we struggled. We have scored 56 goals and conceded only nine, which is a good achievement as well.

"We've won nothing at all yet, but we have a semi-final of the Handicup next and I'd love the opportunity of taking this team to a final.

"More importantly, I've put together a really decent set of boys, where their efforts are all about the team and not individual targets."
