THE age old rivalry of a Saints v Wigan derby came to Cheshire League football as St Helens Town took on Wigan Town at Ince Rose Bridge - with the visitors rattling in seven without reply.

The Marksmen were back to their old self after a rocky few weeks and Ryan Cook fired home from close range on four minutes to settle any early nerves.

The tide never looked like turning after that and further scores from Kenny Dixon after good work from right back Luke Diggle and a penalty from his brother Liam Diggle had Town cruising at half time 3-0 up.

Youngster Alfie Stott had continually troubled Wigan down the right and on 63 minutes he smashed in Town's fourth off the underside of the bar.

However, the star of the show was yet to be revealed. Debutants Ethan Danku and Scott Williamson were introduced from the bench by Paul Piert on 65 minutes and over the next mesmerising 25 minutes Danku would have the Wigan defenders at sixes and sevens, fire in an unbelievable hat trick and claim the man of the match award.

His first and third were clinical but his second was a sight to behold as he fired in from 25 yards after leaving a defender in his wake. Town are back at Ruskin Drive this Saturday with a 3pm kick off v Claybrow FC.
