Tom Crump converted a penalty flick to put the sixes ahead, but it was all square at the break after Duncan Knox converted at a corner.

Alex De Bacci, George Clift, Sam Horrocks, Sam Splisbury and Pierre Fleet shone in the second half, as Dean Stevens put the sevens ahead.

And George Winter fired in a corner to make it 3-1, before Wesley Manta added a late opportunist effort.

The women’s first team came from a goal down to beat Colchester 6-1, with two goals from Astrid Ainley and others from Renske Pesch, Karen Allan, Kirsty McLeod and Ailish Hendry.

And the eighth team ran out 8-2 winners over Old Southendian thirds, after also falling behind.

The men took a point from a 2-2 draw at Peterborough, as Ben Gregory struck late.

Harry Finster cancelled out Peterborough’s first goal, then set up Gregory from the final attack of the match.
