With the opening six minutes tight they got a massive slice of luck as Adam Hunt found space down Biggleswade’s right and hit a fierce first time cross that cannoned off a defender and into the net.

With confidence high FC took quick advantage as Ryan Inskip and Alex Marsh exchanged passes before Inskip cleverly placed the ball in the bottom corner for 2-0 after only eight minutes.

The third came on 11 minutes – this time Owen Dixon and Marsh linked well and Tom Cookman cleverly let the ball run to Lee Northfield who found the top right hand corner.

Codicote, through ex-Wader Bobby Dance, saw a free kick go wide and new signing Dan Child made a good save from Leroy Williams.

Biggleswade got their fourth on 24 minutes, Northfield holding off three challenges before finding Cookman who blasted in his 13th of the season.

Ryan Inskip almost got his second as he clipped a post before FC added the fifth on 37 minutes, Northfield finding space on the left and his pass allowing Inskip the simplest of finishes.

The second half began with Codicote having two openings, another Dance free kick this time saved comfortably and a James Taylor shot that flew inches wide.

The sixth arrived on 55 minutes as Pat McCafferty and Marsh linked finding Inskip who netted for a deserved hat trick.

Codicote produced a quality move on 57 minutes that saw Williams beat Child but brilliant back tracking from George Riley saw him clear the shot off the line.

Biggleswade introduced Rhys Thorpe and Ian Rees and it was the two who combined as Thorpe fired home the seventh on 62 minutes. Thorpe grabbed his second eight minutes from time, Mark Franklin the instigator as Biggleswade got their eighth.
