With the away side not fielding the full 11 players, this top versus bottom of the league match was always going to be one-sided and so it proved when Matty Wing opened the scoring on two minutes after a good run down the right.

Tom Lait then repeated the feat almost straight from the restart. Scotty Goodwin scored his first after good play by man-of-the-match Ben Smith. Goodwin was now getting into his stride and scored three quick goals from balls over the top. With good crosses from Wing and Smith, Goodwin completed his double hat-trick.

Mitch Weavers got into the action with a header from a corner to make the score 9-0. Lait and Wing each scored their second before Goodwin scored a further hat-trick, the best being an overhead kick from 12 yards, making the half-time score 14-0.

AFC made some changes at half-time and Brandon Wade quickly made his mark, slotting home after Daniel George and Matty Wing combined well on the right. Wade then rifled home his second from a rebounded shot. After a bit of a goalmouth scramble Bergholt were unlucky to concede an own goal while trying to clear their lines. There was then a period of sustained pressure from AFC, with chances being missed and some fine saves from the Bergholt keeper.

But the inevitable happened and when Bradley King finished a good move the floodgates opened again and Tom Lait completed his hat-trick.

Huge credit goes to Bergholt Heath, who only had eight players and could have forfeited the match if one of their players had gone off injured.
