Championship striker Brady increases his lead in tussle for men’s Golden Boot

Leading goalscorer Adam Brady scored only one of Cambridge’s seven goals in the WaiBOP Championship’s 7-4 win at Matamata Swifts but it helped increase his lead in the race for the club’s men’s Golden Boot.

His second-half effort for the champs provided his 12th goal of the season, giving him a four-goal lead over nearest rival Josh Clarkin who was ruled out of the first team’s match at Oratia United due to illness.
