SAM PEARSON scored six goals as Wellington took full advantage of a limited fixture list to move three points clear in the Zzoomm Herefordshire League Premier Division summit with an emphatic 11-0 victory over Tenbury United.

With the Kensal Ground frozen due to the recent freezing temperatures, the match was moved to the SSAFA County Ground, where there were no such issues with the artificial surface.

Pearson completed his treble after the interval before Freddie Fox made it 6-0 to the Tangerines.

Alex Lancett extended the lead before Pearson scored his fourth of the afternoon.

Former Lads Club player Will Loughman added his name to the score sheet before Pearson completed the scoring with two further goals which saw the former Hereford Pegasus striker conclude the match with a double hat-trick.
