Six-shooting Imps up to second spot
Rothley Imps flexed their muscles on Saturday as they climbed into second place in the Premier Division table.
Cottesmore Amateurs could find no answer to their goal power as the defending champions eased to a 6-1 victory.
Steve Hart continues to prove a thorn in the side of opposing defences as he scored twice. Aiden Black and John Goulty, however, ensured that it wasn't a one-man show as they matched Hart's efforts with a brace each.
It is Caterpillar, though, who continue to cut out the pace at the top of the chart, where they hold a three-point advantage over Rothley.
