In front of another bumper crowd, Craig Gillies hit a hat-trick. Jack Whiting, Josh Joyce and Richard Allen were also on target.

Manager Ashley Taylor said: “We won 6-0 and played really well! We needed a reaction after the Outwell defeat and the lads delivered so I’m really pleased.

“At the outwell game we had 168 people watching and I think the occasion got to us

“And we started forcing the ball and not doing what we do best which is moving the ball quickly and finding feet. Last night we did exactly that and was a massive difference

“We also had another 100+ people watching the game last night and I would like to thank all the locals for the support.”

Also in Kershaw Senior A, Paul Richardson’s spectacular lob meant Outwell Swifts made it two wins from two with a 1-0 win at Soham Town Rangers.
