Football: Goalden Cheyne; Highland League.
Boss Ronnie Brown insists he has never given the ex-Peterborough player his blessing to charge up and down the field, but he is not about to curtail his attacking instincts.
Brown said: "Jim is a worker and he deserved his goals just for the effort he expended.
"I don't know about him having a licence to roam - I think Jim Cheyne creates his own licence.
"But he is an inspiration and is laying down the gauntlet to the strikers and the rest of the team with the way he's banging them in.''
Cheyne's said: "I was pleased with the hat-trick because it helped break down any Rothes resistance. But, as for my attacking style, that's just the way I play.''
