The floodgates were well and truly opened at Jubilee Park as Jimmy Brattan’s men thumped Melton Town 7-0.

Five of the goals arrived in the first half with Liam Rodden’s opener being quickly followed by a Jonny Hall header. A Corey Kingston brace then sandwiched a Richard Baines effort.

Baines struck again in the second period before James Seymour completed a high-scoring success.

Eynesbury stretched their unbeaten United Counties League Premier Division run to eight matches with a smooth away success.
