Laburnum FC 7

Cresswell Rose and Crown 4

Laburnum extended their unbeaten home record with a convincing win over Cresswell Rose and Crown.

A bright start saw Laburnum race into a two-goal lead in the opening five minutes, with Paul Mellor and Jim Holmes scoring. Chris Toplis then added a third before half time.

Laburnum were now full of confidence and started the second half by playing some excellent two-touch football, anchored by an excellent performance from Jimmy Thompson.

The chances continued to come and further goals were added by Matt Haywood, Dave Whitworth, Chris Toplis and Paul Mellor.

Laburnum will hope that they can address their poor away form next week with a trip to Renishaw.
