Achilles extended their lead at the top of the SIL Senior Division to eight points after comfortably beating East Bergholt United 6-2 away.

Early goals from Lee Grimwood and Danny Garrad set Achilles on their way before David Grimwood’s clever run and shot crept in past Gary Hammond in the Bergholt goal for a 3-0 advantage at the break.

Darren Van 0ene made it 4-0 Achilles before poor play between Ashley Smith and goalkeeper Chaplin allowed Heathcoate to slot home for Bergholt.

Achilles sub Gavin Van Oene came off the bench to score a double, one being a fine free kick from 25 yards, before Peck got another consolation for Bergholt.

Elsewhere, Henley Athletic saw off Leiston St Margarets 2-0, after a stalemate first half.

The deadlock was broken after 70 minutes as a move down the right saw Munson cushion a ball down off his chest for Connor Field to smash home a curling, dipping wonder goal from 25 yards to make it 1-0.

After defending a spate of free kicks, Henley broke again and Munson was brought down by the visiting keeper, with Clark Bruce stepping up to smash home the penalty.
