Move over Will Grigg - Bradley Sach is after your song.
The on-fire Potters Bar Town striker bagged two goals in five minutes as the Scholars grabbed a deserved win in the FA Trophy at Margate.
It took his tally to four in two games, after his brace against Bishop’s Stortford last Tuesday, and booked their place in the second qualifying round.
His first on a gloriously sunny, if slightly chilly afternoon at Hartsdown Park came on 10 minutes as he profited from a Keagan Cole corner that caused mayhem in the Margate box.
And he was on hand again to gleefully tuck away the loose ball after Margate keeper Henry Newcombe had spilled a Dernell Wynter shot.
He could have even completed his hat-trick with seconds remaining but he was denied by a superb tackle from Jordan Robins as he burst into the box.
Sach had only managed three prior to the last two games and his new-found confidence in front of goal has come at the perfect time for the Scholars, who were rocked first by the departure of manager James Duncan and first-team coach Michael Murray to Chesham United who were then followed to The Meadow by defender Steve Brown and last year’s top scorer Eoin Casey.
But the remaining squad have shown their resilience and the two victories have both been well deserved.
They did concede on the Kent coast, Jack Paxman crossing for Frannie Collin to nod into the path of Joe Taylor on 37 minutes, but for the most part it was the yellow-shirted visitors who were on the front foot.
Cole and Wynter were combining well up front and Sandro Costa was terrorising the full-back down Bar’s left wing.
Both Billy Adcock and Wynter had chances in the first half and after the break it was the turn of Sean Grace to go close, meeting a Cole corner with his head but seeing his effort bounce of the artificial surface and clear the bar.
In the end though it didn’t matter and on this form both Bar and Sach will fancy their chances against anybody.
The Scholars next match is at home to Wingate & Finchley on Saturday.
