Two minutes later, Luke Rees whipped a cross in only for the Scalby defender to poke into his own net. Scalby pulled a goal back which their work-rate deserved. Brandon Payne picked up a loose ball from 25 yards out and fired home the goal of the game.

In the second half Scalby pulled another goal back, veteran Dave Oxley played a lovely ball down the wing for his son 16-year-old Sonny Oxley, in his first men’s game, to slot home.
Edgehill then took control, Wilson scored from the spot. Ryder Greening grabbed a deserved goal, then Ted Edwards moved up front and hit a brace.
