Brimington doubled the lead thanks to a superb run from Dan Hawkins. His ball went to Chris Marshall, whose first-time effort flew in.

Club came out for the second half with a new determination and Richard Henson headed over at a corner befor Scott hit the woodwork.

But 17 minutes from time Gino Defazio makd it 3-1.

Club fought on and Dale Hegarty’s effort was cleared off the line and Scott Hegarty hit the woodwork before Shane Dickens popped up to slot the ball home at the far post on the final whistle.
