Sam Hyde, Jamie Bradshaw and Martin Cooper were also on target for Jamie Towse's rampant visiting side, Andy Noon scoring the only Bar goal from the penalty spot.

Towse said: "It was 7-0 by half-time, so the game petered out a bit in the second half. In the first half we were very good, knocking it about well and good finishing.

"Mikey Anderson and Tommy Barker shared the man of match award. This was a good response by the lads after being so disappointing against Newlands."
