The last time these two teams met, South Normanton lost to Barrowby 3-0 and it was only the second time in 16 games that Normanton had lost.

It was a totally different affair this time out as South Normanton cruised to an easy 8-1 win.

It took just 15 minutes to open the scoring after defensive errors allowed Shane Newman to open the scoring. The second goal came direct from the corner on 22 from Lee Sutton.

Newton made it 3-0 on 38 minutes after he pounced on a rebound for his second of the game.

Four minutes later he completed his hat-trick following an excellent pass by Sutton.

It was five right before half-time when Danny Roberts opened his account from 10 yards.

It took five minutes until Newton got his fourth at the back post from a Roberts cross to make it 19 goals from 26 starts this season.

Barrowby scored a consolation when McDonald chipped the keeper from 25 yard on the hour.

But Kyle Wadsworth extended the lead for South Normanton on 70minutes, before Rob Fretwell completed the rout with four mintues to go.

South Normanton: Kennerson, Granger, Keenan, J Carter (c), Motteshead, O’Reilly, Sims (Sims 60 mins), Roberts, Sutton (Fretwell mins), Newton (Greenhalge 50 mins), Griffiths
