Trimingham Pilgrims visited Horsford and completed their first league double of the season with a convincing 3-0 victory.

They drew first blood when Ollie Bell received the ball on the left of the area from an Adam Johnson throw-in and played it into the path of Ryan Beeson whose stinging shot was parried by the keeper but George Crane followed up to score.

Two minutes before the break Beeson again set up Crane who slotted a low shot into the net.

Manager Antoni Fawkes used his five substitutes in the second half without breaking the rhythm of the play.

Twenty minutes from time Crane intercepted a Horsford goal kick and chipped the ball forward to Beeson and he expertly flicked the ball over a defender’s head, turned and shot into the bottom right corner.

A fine save from Pilgrim’s keeper Leigh Brown in the dying minutes kept a clean sheet for a 3-0 win.
