Three goals in eight first half minutes helped Unite MK to their first win of the season on Saturday as they thrashed Tring Corinthians 4-1.

With just a draw to their name after their opening two SSML Division 2 games, Unite had to wait until the 33rd minute before Luke Little opened the scoring, finishing off a well-worked move from the home side.

And it sparked a glut of goals for Unite. Two minutes later, Jamie Parker fired in the first of his brace with a fine strike from the edge of the box. Cole Rawson then made it 3-0 four minutes before half time when he caught the Tring defence napping at a set-piece to head home unmarked from inside the six yard box.

Parker made it 4-0 19 minutes into the second half, again finding the corner from range to beat the Corinthian keeper from range, before the visitors pulled a consolation goal back.

This Saturday, Unite head to Bovingdon.

Elsewhere in Division 2, Jacob Hack and Ross Butler were on the scoresheet as Old Bradwell beat Sarratt 2-0, while MK Gallacticos let slip a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to Mursley United. Clean Slate are bottom of the table after getting thumped 6-1 by Totternhoe.
