Pier took the lead on 15 minutes through a stunning volley from Martin Cooper, but five minutes later Tyson Stubbings went one-on-one with Pier keeper Chris Ferrey, faked a shot and rounded Ferrey to level for the home side.

Cooper had the ideal chance to restore Pier's lead five minutes later from the penalty spot but he fired his spot-kick, awarded for a handball by Kurt Henderson, wide, Edgehill taking the lead through a superb 30-yard lob by Robbie Scarborough before half-time.

A great finish from Richie Barker made it 2-2 on 69 minutes but two more Stubbings goals, the first from 30 yards and the second after fine work from Jackson Jowett, sealed his hat-trick and the win, as well as an unbeaten campaign, for Steven Clegg's troops.
