Hanworth Villa made it two wins in a row as they continue to climb up Isthmian League South Central Division with a 3-0 victory over Tooting and Mitcham. 

Following promotion last season, it has been a slow start for the Villains but nine goals in three games in all competitions has seen them catch fire. 

Goals inside the first ten minutes from Tom Bender and Jon Hippolite had the game all but won and then Sam Merson wrapped up the points late on against goal shy Tooting and Mitcham. 

Hanworth used the momentum picked up in the past week to come flying out of the traps as Bender notched his third of the season after just six minutes. 

Two minutes later it was Hippolite who turned home, now scoring in back-to-back games, to stamp the visiting side's authority on proceedings. 

These early goals shocked Tooting and Mitcham and it took them time to recover but failed to take an advantage, before four minutes from time the game was sealed when Merson scored. 

Hanworth Villa are now very much on the climb in seventh place but level on points with those in the play-off places. 

Next up they are moving away from league action and turn their attention to the FA Trophy with Littlehampton Town travelling to Rectory Meadow.
