Playing some of the best rugby seen at The Common this season, some sweeping moves from the backs stretched the Anstey defence time and time again with wing Martyn Allen, making his first appearance of the season, swooped across line to score a try and put the game beyond the visitors' reach.
Captain Vinny Tarbox said: "The club have performed well to finish third in the league and we are looking forward to playing the likes of St Ives and Stamford next season.
"The experience of this season should put us in a fine position to have a real charge at the title next year.
