This season is becoming a statto's delight for the Deres.

Harry Harding is leading the way, just as he's leading the scoring charts in the SCEFL second division.  After his hat-trick in the 6-0 beating ofd Lydd Town on Saturday (26 January) his stats are ridiculous: 32 goals in 27 appearances, 10 in the last 4 games, 4 hat-tricks in the last 10 games, and the second-earliest date in a season on which a Deres player has reached 30 goals. 

(He's behind Alfie May who reached that landmark on 6 January 2015, albeit from the same number of appearances.  But we shouldn't forget Deres' record goalscorer Colin Johnson, who in 1962-63 scored his 29th goal on Boxing Day, only for the worst winter of the 20th century to intervene and delay our next game and his next goal until 23 February!)
