Meanwhile, a clinical display of finishing by Haverhill Borough saw the visitors run out comfortable 5-0 winners against Team Bury on Saturday.

Haverhill took the lead on 16 minutes when Jarid Robson hit a somewhat speculative shot from the edge of the penalty area, which George Bugg in the Bury goal could only palm into the top of the goal.

Borough made it 2-0 shortly after as Luke Clark headed the ball back into the six yard box and, after Errol Durrell’s shot was blocked, Charlie Holmes bundled the ball in.

Holmes added his second on the half hour with a typical striker’s goal. Released with a ball over the top of the Bury defence, he outmuscled the retreating defenders before beating Bugg down to his left.

As the game approached half time, Clark opened his account for Haverhill, squeezing home a tight finish, before Holmes completed his hat-trick on the hour mark.

Holmes flicked the ball into an empty net after a quick throw in from substitute Ryan Kent had found its way across the six yard box, with keeper Bugg stranded.
