The Singleton Roosters celebrated a 100-point win over Nelson Bay at Rose Point Park on Saturday.
The home side entered the first break with a 7.4 (46) to 0.0 (0) lead and never looked back.
Singleton’s star duo Andrew Scott (2019 Davey medallist) and Alex Mitchell (2016 Granland medallist) finished with six goals each.
“We needed to win by 60-points or more to get the percentage over 100 after our loss to Newcastle City,” Ellis-Cluff told The Hunter River Times.
“So did Zac Gayfer in only his second game for the club.”
The Roosters will now travel to Max McMahon Oval this Saturday for the Bryan Childs Shield memorial game against the winless Maitland Saints.
The match will be live streamed from 2pm.
