Newby's treble keeps Witham top of division one north
Witham Town maintained not only their unbeaten record this season, but also their place as the frontrunners in the Ryman League division one north with a 4-2 win at Chatham Town.
Garry Kimble's team warmed-up nicely for Tuesday's visit of Needham Market to the Village Glass Stadium by winning their fourth game on the road in the league so far.
They took the lead in the 34th minute when defender Tom Devaux headed home, but the hosts were soon level.
Kris Newby fired Witham back in front before the break, though, and got another the other side of half-time to provide a two-goal cushion for the visitors.
Chatham did get one back with 23 minutes to go, but Newby settled any nerves there might have been when he completed his hat-trick in the 79th minute.
The win kept Witham clear at the top of the division by a point from second-placed VCD Athletic.
