Dunmow Rhodes were crowned Braintree & North Essex Sunday League Division Two champions after beating Great Bradfords Reserves by a 5-0 margin.

They took the lead when Kennie Irving set up captain Christian Roles to fire home and it was 2-0 midway through the first half thanks to an excellent strike from Jake Sutton.

A third goal arrived before half time when Sutton’s cross was met by Ben Fisher, who fired into the net.

And Rhodes continued to dominate in the second half, with Irving and Sutton going close to adding to the tally before set-piece specialist Adam Griggs headed the fourth.

Lewis Roe impressed for Rhodes, who were passing the ball around well, and Fisher completed their nap hand with his second goal after excellent play by Irving.
