AIRBUS UK Broughton stormed to their biggest ever Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League win on Saturday.
Steve Abbott hit a hat-trick as Andy Preece’s rampant side returned to winning ways in emphatic fashion with a stunning 7-1 success at Newtown.
Tom Field and Ian Kearney – like Abbott – netted their first competitive goals for the Wingmakers, whose scoring was completed by Steve Tomassen and Chris Budrys.
Airbus boss Preece said: “It was a fantastic result. They have beaten some of the top teams in this league this season and one or two of the managers we spoke to said they were the best team they’d played.”
Abbott, Budrys and substitute Jordan Johnson picked up knocks and would have been ruled out of the Wingmakers’ League Cup clash at Penrhyncoch on Tuesday. The first-round tie was postponed, however, because of a waterlogged pitch.
Airbus host Aberystwyth Town on Saturday (2.30pm).
There will be no money-spinning FA Cup run for Vauxhall Motors this season after they fell at the first hurdle.

They then make the trip to FC Halifax Town on Tuesday (7.45pm).
Upton AA could count themselves desperately unlucky to go down 2-1 at Newton in West Cheshire League Division One on Saturday.
Andy Lloyd’s side dominated the first half but trailed at the break after the referee awarded a contentious penalty. Adam Bedford saved the spot-kick but the rebound was converted.
Upton equalised soon after the restart through substitute Simon Andrews and at that stage there looked to be only one winner. So it came as a cruel blow when high flying Newton went back in front late on.
A Chris McGann strike and an own goal ensured Christleton drew 2-2 at defending champions Ashville.
A poor defensive performance condemned Chester Nomads to a 3-0 loss at free-scoring Cammell Laird Reserves.
Nomads had won 4-1 at Southport Trinity last Wednesday with goals from Dale Harris, Dan Lloyd, Dan Farrell and Kieran Smith.
