Ahead after just three minutes when following an inter-exchange between Adam Larsen and Andrew Hayday, Mark Franklin had the simple task of netting from just six yards out, that lead was doubled in the 21st minute from the penalty spot by Larsen after Paul Jones had been dragged down when looking certain to score by South Beds goalkeeper Lee Slocombe.

Jones however was to get on the scoresheet seven minutes later when set free by Larsen to make it 3-0 and just 60 seconds later it was game over when Jones became the provider for goal number four netted by Alex Woolston.

It was now all one way traffic and but for two misses in front of goal by Hayday and a Matt Le-Dell effort coming back off the crossbar it could have been 7-0 by half time.

The 80-plus crowd were to have to wait until the 66th minute before substitute Kai Griffiths-Shilton made it 5-0, with the rout being concluded by a second goal from Jones just four minutes from time.
