Dilham started the game well and had a goal disallowed before Jordan Rocastle put the home side ahead before half-time from close range.

That's how it stayed until the hour mark when Connor Delaney scored with a fine finish and then Roy Bevis added a third.

With the visitors reduced to 10 men, two goals in a minute saw Bevis collect his hat-trick and Delaney add another, before Jason Armes wrapped up the scoring in injury time.

In the other game played, Poringland Wanderers left it until the penultimate game of the season to record their first win, 2-1 over Farmhouse. Will Harrowing put the hosts ahead, before Farmhouse levelled. But with five minutes left, Jonny Causton headed home from a free-kick to nab the points.
