Lions bossed the early stages with good possession and forced the Evergreen goalkeeper into some smart saves. As the half went on, Evergreen got a foothold in the game and looked dangerous from set-pieces, but with five minutes remaining of the half, Lions went ahead after a good move involving Rinsler and Kennet allowed Max Kyte to hammer home his fifth goal in four games.

The lead was doubled within 45 seconds of the second half thanks to a neat finish from captain Josh KennetThe football at times was excellent and Lions were soon further ahead after a free-kick from the impressive Charlie Kasler.

Three soon became four and five after good work from the returning TJ Keterman, who rolled in Kennet for his second of the afternoon, and to round the day off, Keterman scored himself with a great finish into the bottom right hand corner.

Manager Andy Landesberg said: “That was the reaction I wanted after Tuesday’s defeat at Cuffley. I thought the boys were excellent and our second half performance was the best 45 minutes of the season. We had so many positives today with Jake Furman putting in another top display, he is very quickly becoming an important part of this team.

“The back four kept another clean sheet. The returning Kasler and Keterman both getting on the score sheet, Max Kyte and Kennet scoring again. It’s very early stages but things are starting to gel. We now have a very tough game away at Wingate on Tuesday evening.”
