K& P recorded their biggest away winning margin since entering the Ridgeons League with a blockbusting 6-0 victory.

And as the K&P forwards brought their shooting boots, it ended a long line of poor results against teams at the bottom of the table, writes Stuart Baker.

It was Wanderers' golden boot winner Lee McGlone who had the first shot with a sizzler that Nathan Pauling saw late and tipped over the bar.

At the other end Luke Catchpole, in a swift raid, hooked the ball onto the top of the net.

Leading marksman Nathan Stone took 18 minutes to find the net for the first of his K&P hat-trick when from 20 yards he slotted his shot between a forest of legs.

For the next 15 minutes there was a dearth of goalmouth action until Scott Manning, playing in a more forward left wing role this week, was left isolated as he shot home from the angle.

Stone's second came two minutes later when he converted after being left in oceans of space and it was 3-0. Lee Hunter rounded off the first half scoring, which saw the ball bounce into the goal.

Wanderers, who looked to have given up, came out with renewed vigour and drive after the interval and McGlone had a good effort on 70 minutes. But after being booked five minutes earlier Symonds had an early bath.

K& P went on to a 6-0 win when Stone's third goal was headed in from a free kick before Hunter got his second running free and having a simple target past a beleaguered home keeper, Hammond, that condemns Wanderers to relegation.

Team: N Pauling, D Tacon, J Stokeld, J Jefford, R de Coteau, I Dawson, P Highfield, L Hunter, N Stone, L Catchpole and S Manning.

Subs: E Hunter, B Carter, J Blyth and R Durrant.
