Argyle were in seventh heaven with a comprehensive victory in which Will Jenkins-Davies scored four times alongside two efforts from Joe Hatch and a late one from Oscar Halls.

Swindon were blown away in a whirlwind opening 11 minutes of this Youth Alliance League game in Wiltshire.

Destroyer-in-chief was Argyle's Welsh Youth International Jenkins-Davies who struck the first of his treble after just 52 seconds from a trademark free-kick. 

This was followed, six minutes later, by Jenkins-Davies arriving on cue to prod the ball home to make it two. 

It was not long before a clearance fell to him on the edge of the area and with a sumptuous left-footed volley, he completed his early hat trick. 

A fourth goal for The Pilgrims arrived on 18 minutes when Joe Hatch was brought down in area and he picked himself up to convert the penalty.

Jenkins-Davies came close to taking his personal tally to four as his free kick smashed against the crossbar before, near the half-hour mark, Swindon had their first real effort, with a header from a corner travelling over the bar. 

Their best chance came a minute before the break a Swindon striker appeared to be clear on goal, but a combination of goalkeeper Zak Baker and Halls ensured that Argyle went in at the interval with a clean sheet.

Argyle required just a minute of the second half to make it 5-0 with Jenkins-Davies this time scoring from the penalty spot.

The young Pilgrims did not ease their pressure on the home side, winning a third penalty, on 55 minutes, with Hatch again the man felled. Once again, he converted from 12 yards. 

The rout was completed four minutes from time when skipper Halls met a corner at the far post with a controlled right-foot effort from four yards.
