A NON-LEAGUE club racked up FORTY GOALS without reply in a 16th-tier game – with one player scoring 13 times.
Peterborough Rangers swept aside Sawtry Reserves in a Peterborough & District League (PDFL) Division Five clash on Saturday.
Rangers’ player manager Dwayne Rankin bagged THIRTEEN of their goals at the Bushfield Leisure Centre to help keep them top of their local league.
They now boast a plus 77 goal-difference with Tiago Dias with 11, Chris Brown (7), Cameron Guest (6), Daniel Neto (1), Carlos Djalo (1) and Morgan Bartle (1) also on target.
It was 19-0 at half-time, and Rankin told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: “I’ve never known a scoreline like that in my life and I have been playing since I was ten.
“Fair play to them for keeping going but 40-0 – and I’m player-manager and chairman – is my greatest achievement score wise. I’ve never known anything like it.”
Rangers are new to the division and currently lead Nene Park Feeder by two points.
The result left Sawtry with a minus 61 goal-difference and second-from-bottom in the table after one win and five defeats from their six league games so far this season.

And there was another remarkable thrashing in PDFL Division Four on the same day as Thorpe Wood Rangers beat Parkside Reserves 35-0.
The FA’s results service shows that Michael Uff bagged 15 goals and Chris Down seven for Thorpe Wood, who trail league leaders Sutton United by six points, but with three games in hand.
A round-up of the results in the Peterborough Telegraph points out it is ‘not clear how many players the beaten teams fielded’, and comments on social media suggest they may not have started with the full 11.
