Awesome Owls in the hunt for a treble haul
CLEETHORPES Town's unbeaten charge is being waged on three fronts after they reached Round Four of the Lincolnshire Sunday Cup with a 6-2 triumph at Bottesford Town.
The Owls were unbeaten en-route to glory in Division Five of the Grimsby, Cleethorpes & District Sunday Football League last season.
This campaign, they are yet to drop a point in Division Three and are through to the quarter-finals of the Senior Challenge Cup.
Also undefeated in the Sunday Cup, Clee will face GTF Seas in the last 16.

The Owls took the lead when Luke Mascall scored from the penalty spot following a foul on Callum Robinson.
Bottesford equalised when a long ball caught the Clee back-line square and a striker capitalised to calmly fire home.
The Owls responded and were on top when they retook the lead in fortunate circumstances – Alex Flett's shot from the edge of the box hit a divot and bounced over the diving Bottesford goalkeeper.
Tommy Wright and Mascall were on target as Clee ended the first half 4-1 up.
Mascall bagged his hat-trick early in the second half and, after Bottesford hit back with two goals, Wright added a sixth.
Clee secretary Dave Patterson said: "We did the job against a physical Scunthorpe Division One side. It was a great win to see Cleethorpes through to the last 16."
On Sunday, Cleethorpes take on East Trans Pelham in the league.
Patterson added: "We beat them 3-0 a couple of weeks ago, but this will be a different game.
"They'll have Chris Ward back from suspension and he's a decent player."
"We're looking forward to it and will have a good side out because we are lucky enough to have a strong squad.
"We know it will be a tough game and they will come and have a go at us."
GTF Seas reached the last 16 by winning 4-2 against Brigg Servicemen's Club.
Ryan Rice's double, along with goals from Lee Allerton and a Tommy Hunter penalty, steered Seas to victory against an experienced Brigg outfit.
Seas winger Luke McLellan was impressive form and it was his trickery that led to the penalty.
DMS will take on Honest Lawyer in the last 16 after they enjoyed a 5-2 victory over Great Coates.
Simon Tuplin put Great Coates ahead and Anthony Boulter should have doubled the lead in the second half – but he was denied by a great save from Jamie Glover.
Danny Carter equalised with a powerful shot and then his good run set up Stefan Melin to tap home as DMS moved ahead.
Carter steered Jonathan Oglesby's home for his second, before goals from Carl Price and Melin assured victory.
Ryan Walker scored a late consolation for Great Coates.
Honest Lawyer needed a penalty shoot-out to see off Pattesons after the score was locked at 3-3 following extra-time.
Danny Hawkey and a Brad Wright double for the Lawyers had been cancelled out by goals from Peter Lynch, Matthew Riley and Connor McLean for Pattesons.
