Poachers boss Gary Edgley labelled this as his side's "worst performance of the season".

After two narrow 1-0 defeats, they were buried in a goal avalanche.

Anstey Nomads, on their first visit for more than half a century, took all three points in a game which saw the home defence struggle throughout.

Edgley was without the injured Finlay Armond and Jack Fixter as well as the unavailable Alex Beck and Rodrigo Silva and long-term absentees Jordan Tate and Lori Borbely.

Luke White scored two excellent goals before the break and a fine second-half Richard Ford header from a Lee Beeson free-kick briefly gave the hosts a glimmer of hope at 4-3 - but that was quickly snuffed out.

White was named Man of the Match and presented with his award by birthday boy Dave Creasey.
