Burnham Ramblers went goal crazy as the long await for competitive action saw them fire five second half goals against Barkingside


Following four postponed games and one abandoned match - a run of 21 days without a game - The Ramblers showed that hadn't lost their touch in front of goal with a ruthless display.

And they also showed that they still have plenty of firepower despite the departure of top goal scorer Neil Richmond to East Thurrock.

A brace from Bradley Nobbs combined with goals from Terry Griffiths, Billy Hunt and Dan Williams sealed the biggest win of the season for the Ramblers.

After hard work by the Ramblers ground staff, the game was one of the few to go ahead in the Ryman League. But despite the standing water being drained, it was the wind which was seemingly playing its part in the game.

Barkingside, playing with the wind at their backs, had the best chances in the first half, but the visitors couldn't take any of their numerous opportunities.

And Ramblers certainly took advantage as they got their game together in the second-half with Barkingside chasing shadows throughout.

Nobbs started it off on 57 minutes with a great individual goal and then he doubled the score on 68 minutes after being fed in by Mark Sisson, playing on his debut for the Ramblers, with a well taken low shot.

The Ramblers third came on 79 minutes when Williams played in Griffiths with a wonderful pass, whose shot from 18 yards went in at the far post.

The lead was extended just moments later when Griffiths turned provider with a great cross to the far post which Hunt headed home.

Then, on 89 minutes, the Ramblers completed a poor afternoon for Barkingside when they made it five when a corner from Ricky Evans found William's who got his deserved goal after working hard up top all afternoon.
