SPORTING Club Inkberrow eased to a comfortable 4-0 victory against Long Crendon to extend their winning run to six matches in all competitions.

The home extended their lead before the break when Benson bundled the ball home from close range after good work from Gregor Guy and Calum Chitty.

And Emblem completed the scoring at the start of the second half after winning back possession before driving into the box and firing in off the post.

Long Crendon’s goalkeeper saw red for handing the ball outside of the penalty area with the home side unable to add to their lead in the remaining minutes.
