St Neots Town powered to their biggest-ever Southern League away success last night.
David Batch’s men blew away newly-promoted Bedworth United 6-0 in a Premier Division clash – and, for the second successive Tuesday, they encountered opponents reduced to nine men.
Ryan Hawkins earned and missed a penalty before Tom Meechan fired St Neots ahead midway through the first half.
Tom Ward doubled their advantage when heading in a Jack Wilkinson cross before Lee Clarke successfully converted a second penalty.
Debutant Isaac Galliford – one of two youngsters drafted in on loan from Luton Town – laid on a fourth goal for Connor Hall before the break with Bedworth already having seen Mark Albrighton dismissed for a stamp.
St Neots refused to take their feet off the gas with two further goals arriving in as many minutes early in the second half.
Substitute Guy Mailancol, a former Huntingdon player, announced his interval arrival from the bench with his first goal for St Neots before Meechan completed the six-goal haul with his sixth of the campaign. Hosts Bedworth collected a second red card when Nathan Haines received his marching orders with 20 minutes to go.
