Baston have kept their top spot in division two in the Chromasport and Trophies Peterborough League after beating Guyhirn 4-0.

Even missing some key players, including Ben Cowles who has joined Deeping Rangers, Baston dominated to win the home fixture.

Starting slowly Baston keeper Aidan Finn had to make a smart save to stop the visitors from taking an early lead.

After 10 minutes Baston got going with fullbacks Laz Stewart and Jacob Parkin instrumental in taking the attack to the opposition.

It was Parkins’ burst forwards down the left which created the first goal, a cross into the box which Martin Holyoake got on the end of and powered his header in to the Guyhirn goal.

Baston punished a Guyhirn defensive error with Dan Flood then latched on to a stray pass in the Guyhirn defence and slotted home past the onrushing keeper.

It was soon 3-0 when another Baston attack resulted in a corner which Tom Horton swung in for Jason Gough to head home unmarked in the six-yard box.

Before half time Guyhirn tested keeper Finn on two occasions, but proved his worth by keeping them at bay.

In the second half Guyhirn created the better of the chances but Finn and the woodwork kept them out.

However Baston finished the game off when James Ward and Flood hassled a Guyhirn defender into a mistake which Holyoake tucked away for his second of the game.

Baston are on top with 14 points, one more than Peterborough ICA Sports A.

They face Gedney Hill at home this weekend and will hope to go one better than the 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture at the start of the season.

Baston: Aidan Finn, Laz Stewart, Jason Gough, Ciaran Reynolds, Jacob Parkin, Scott Collins, Dan Flood, Jimmy McDonnell, James Ward, Tom Horton (Scott Thompson), Martin Holyoake
