Jake Young said his relationship with Dan Kemp off the pitch is helping them on it

Jake Young said that living with Dan Kemp has helped them to forge the special relationship they have created on the pitch. Total Sport’s Joe Acklam spoke to the striker after Swindon’s 6-0 win over Crawley.

The 22-year-old scored four goals in the space of 25 minutes and laid on another for Kemp before Tyrese Shade added a sixth in stoppage time to complete the rout of the Red Devils.

Young said that the MK Dons loanee will have to keep cooking for the pair after he was in charge in the kitchen the night before the two ripped into Scott Lindsey’s side.

He said: “We [Young and Kemp] have a really good relationship, for anyone that doesn’t know, we live together, so that helps.

“We have gotten to know each other off the pitch and then it just works on it, and I feel like I have been playing with him for years.

“We know where each other are going to be, know what we want and things like that.

“Hopefully we can keep setting each other up and contributing to the team because I am really enjoying playing with not just him but all the other lads up front.

“He [Kemp] cooked a really nice, dry chicken pasta last night and this morning, so if that is what happens then he can keep cooking.

“If I am scoring four goals then I will eat his dry pasta all day.”

After scoring four goals in one match for the first time in his career, Young said he could celebrate the day but still had to remain focused on the next match.

He said: “I have got a couple of braces before, but that was my first hat-trick, so it is a great feeling, and I made a beeline over to the ref to get the match ball and that will be on the mantlepiece.

“It was a great feeling to do it in front of the fans, the feeling of that third goal going in I can’t really describe, but it was very special.

“Within reason I think I can enjoy this tonight; everyone was buzzing in the changing room and we have a day or maybe two days off now.

“It is good to get the win and everyone is in good spirits, but like the gaffer [Michael Flynn] said it is only one game and we have to look forward to Saturday.

“It is just three points and there are over 100 left to play for, so it is just a drop in the ocean.

“We can enjoy it, but when the next working day comes around, we need to be good to go, forget about this weekend, and look forward to Saturday.”
