You may not have witnessed a sixer away from home - and nor have I - but here's one that sent shock waves through tier 3

http://swindon-town-fc.co.uk/MatchCentre.asp?MatchID=19690118

I was at that Northampton 2-6 game with my dad. It was notable as all 5 Swindon forwards scored (in those days teams had 5 forwards ;-) )

Some well known players in the Northampton squad : ex England Ron Flowers and Bob Hatton, and ex-Town players Dennis Brown and Eric Weaver.

Kudos to you, Munich.

I'd never been aware that the Cobblers side had included such prestigious players - not to mention two very decent ex Town singers.

Looked like a great performance on Saturday based on the highlights. Attacking force seems to be gelling nicely and finally getting a decent number of goals. Letís hope we can string together some consistency. Williamsí absence will present an opportunity for the likes of Roberts and Reed to stake a claim, although for the latter to be included you would think a change of system may be required.
