Sam Sherring played his part as Cambridge United penned a new chapter in the club’s record books courtesy of a 1-0 victory over League One rivals Crewe Alexandra at the Abbey Stadium.
Adam May’s superb goal on the stroke of half-time saw Cambridge register a hat-trick of league wins in the third tier for the first time since 1994 – six years before Sherring was born!
The 21-year-old defender has started all three games, Sherring also featuring in the 3-1 win against Doncaster Rovers in midweek and the 1-0 victory at Lincoln City on his debut.
And after May had bagged the only goal, Sherring went close to doubling their lead when his powerful header from a Wes Hoolahan corner flashed past the upright.
May settled in favour of the hosts a hard-fought encounter when his 25-yard piledriver flew in off the crossbar four minutes before the interval.
Ryan Glover helped Aldershot Town claim a share of the spoils from a 0-0 draw with high-flying Chesterfield at the Technique Stadium.
Glover, who last week renewed his loan with the Shots, made his 16th appearance and worked tirelessly as Mark Molesley’s team kept a clean sheet against the Spireites.
The Shots were forced to defend in numbers and were rewarded with a point as Chesterfield failed to score for the first time in 18 league games.
Both teams had chances to break the deadlock with the Shots going close when Harrison Panayiotou just failed to connect with Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross.
Glover was replaced by Mikael Ndjoli in the 89th minute as the visitors held on to extend to three games their unbeaten league run.
Luke Nippard made his fourth appearance for Eastbourne Borough as their unbeaten start to 2022 came to an end after they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Bath City at Twerton Park.
Two first-half goals from Alex Fletcher put the hosts in the driving seat at half-time before substitute Leone Gravata came off the bench to halve the arrears midway through the second half.
However, Danny Bloor’s team were unable to find an equaliser with Nippard replaced by Jake Elliott six minutes from time.

Owen Bevan continued his winning start with Truro City, helping the White Tigers to a 2-1 victory over promotion-chasing Hayes & Yeading United at Bolitho Park.
Bevan kept his place after starring in their 2-0 win over Hendon and played his part as the hosts made it a hat-trick of league triumphs.
He was booked towards the end of a low-key first half before second-half goals from Zac Hartley and Rocky Neal put Paul Wotton’s team in the driving seat.
But after Moses Emmanuel had pulled one back with 17 minutes remaining, Bevan and the Truro defence were forced to earn their corn as the visitors went in search of an equaliser.
Jack Seddon got another 90 minutes under his belt as Poole Town were edged out 3-2 by Hendon in an absorbing encounter at Silver Jubilee Park.
First-half goals from Joe White and Liam Brooks put the hosts 2-0 up at the break before Josh Carmichael netted twice in quick succession to make it 2-2.
The Dolphins were thwarted by a string of fine saves from Hendon goalkeeper Fred Burbidge and were sucker-punched when White bagged the winner 12 minutes from time.
