TRINIDADIANS Stern John, Angus Eve, and Kamu Laird scored for their clubs in English divisional football on Saturday while their "big time" colleague Dwight Yorke was netting in the premiership for Manchester United.

In the first division, John scored for Nottingham Forest to break a four-game winless streak, while Eve and Laird were on target for Chester in the third division.

While Yorke scored a double in Manchester United's 4-2 win over West Ham, John gave Forest a 1-0 win over Crewe Alexandra, and strikes by Eve and Laird beat Halifax 2-0.

John, signed recently from U S. Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise Columbus Crew, got his second goal for Forest, when he beat Crewe's goalkeeper Jason Kearton in the 75th minute.
