Having suffered two defeats in the league to Watford this season Central looked nervous prior to the game starting but once the whistle went they were anything but.

They raced into a 4-0 lead after just 16 minutes with a barnstorming and focused performance.

Jack Percy fired them ahead from a Calum Cornish cross after three minutes and within a minute Percy turned provider for Josh Penning who placed a great shot over the keeper.

Daniel Onochie-Williams made it three after a typically powerful run and the fourth arrived with Matt Roome crossing for Penning to hit his second.

Watford did get one back in the second half as Central tired in the heat but they were never going to let the lead slip and held strong for a thoroughly deserved win.
