In the first game honours ended even. Arms took the lead through Dean Skipsey only for Park to level through Dan Hart late in the game.

In the second game it was a stalemate in the opening half, but once Arms edged ahead in the second half they never looked back and ran out 3-0 winners. Arms goals came from their man of the match Dan Lovell (two) and Skipsey.

They had to play relegated club Marshalswick Rovers yesterday (Wednesday).
