The Parishioners couldn’t break the deadlock until three minutes from half-time but still went on to whack West Bridgford 7-0 to stay top of the East Midlands Counties League, Premier Division with eight wins from eight.

Bridgford sit next to bottom but, after seven straight defeats, they had recorded an impressive first win in midweek against Eastwood Community and defended stubbornly for most of the first period.
