Steve Ramsay grabbed a brace, Scott Hardiman, Ryurik Izmestiev and Olivier Moreau also finding the net.
“It was a real morale-booster of a result”, claimed Malcolm Warren afterwards. “After our promotion, there was an air of anxiety in the dressing room, and a win today was the great help”.
He added, “It was a real boost for the club as a whole and helped focus us again ahead of Saturday’s league opener.
a-bot-team’s reward for the win is a Second Round home tie to Teddington Lightenings, demoted from league III.15 after loosing the qualifier.
