The match was over as a contest less than ten minutes into the second half. We led 3-0 at half time then followed this up with a quick-fire double after the break.
Dylan Bull settled any nerves the side may have had with an early strike, before goals from Blair Bates and Paul Clout saw us three up on the half hour.
