Gamlingay ensured that they ended 2015 on a high with an impressive 4-0 victory at home to Brampton on Saturday.

The hosts went into half time with a one goal advantage thank to the opening goal of the game which came on the half hour mark. Leo Churms forced the keeper into a good save from a free kick, but his parry fell to Conor Smith who pulled the ball back across goal for Sam Bonham rifle home from 10 yards.

With the wind at their backs, the home side continued to look the more threatening and doubled their lead on the hour when Joe Webb burst into the box on the left hand side and delivered a powerful cross to the back post which was met by a Harry Kennedy diving header.

Ten minutes later and it was three. Once again, the visiting keeper was forced to parry away a Leo Churms free kick and Smith reacted quickest to hammer home the rebound with his weaker right foot.

Churms completed the Gamlingay scoring with a quarter of an hour remaining when he picked the ball up 25 yards from goal, beat two Brampton defenders and slid the ball into the bottom corner.

Brampton had a late opportunity to pull one back when Harvey Millier found a bit of room on the edge of the box, however his effort came back off the crossbar.

Man of the match was awarded to Nathan Macrow.

Gamlingay now have a break for the Christmas period before returning to home league action on the 2nd January when they entertain Eaton Socon.
