On 18 minutes Rowley put the home side ahead with an easy header after the visitors' keeper got into a tangle with one of his own defenders.

Bradenham continued to create chances at the start of the second half, and Hobbs put them 4-0 ahead when he neatly headed home an excellent Seabright cross.
On 83 minutes sub Vanno volleyed home to finish a good Bradenham move, and immediately after Gamble was unlucky when he struck a post.
On 85 minutes Vanno scored his second and his team's sixth, and just two minutes later Hobbs headed home from a left wing cross to complete the scoring.
Bradenham still have a bit to do to if they are to end up as Division Six champions, but this comprehensive win will surely give them the required confidence to complete their ultimate ambition.
