Reed, back to bottom of the diamond, and Woodgate were at the heart of most moves, while the very experienced and classy Paul Calver had a very good game at the back.
The game was won by two goals from Dixon, the first a drag flick and the second a one-on-one with the keeper.
The best performance of the day was from Max Underwood whose ball possession and tackling was outstanding. This performance was closely followed by Shyam Patel.
