AFC Kempston 0 Stotfold 8

Stotfold went goal crazy once again in this rearranged league fixture at their Bedfordshire rivals.

The first match in November was abandoned due to floodlight failure with the Rokermen one short of double figures with little more than an hour played.

Stotfold finished with eight on Saturday after Paul Garrett blasted in the first goal on four minutes.

Ricky Case's cross from the right flew over Joel Mason in the middle and was met on the left-hand side by Garrett running into the box.

Case and Lee Allinson both had good chances stopped by Chris Williscroft - son of Stotfold physio Ian - in the Kempston goal.
