Dunmow Town enjoyed a comfortable success to end their disrupted first season with silverware.
The 8-1 victory at Little Oakley over Stanway Rovers Reserves gave them the Covid Cup, a late season tournament in the Essex & Suffolk Border League.
Town had the game in the palm of their hand from the very beginning, taking the lead three minutes in with George Purcell latching on to a direct ball through from Patrick Ohman.
And by half-time they had stormed to a 5-0 lead.
Harry Hope had made it two on 19 minutes, Correy Davidson and Mack Miskin combining, and the former's free-kick allowed Kyran Clements to make it three
Purcell made it 4-0 before Dwade James nipped in on a bad back-pass to make it five.
The second half began with a sixth, courtesy of Kirtys Mackenzie, but Stanway got one back on 62 minutes, substitute Josh Rutter the man with it.
