WANDERERS came out on top of this action packed game as the fans were treated to seven goals on Saturday.
The visitors were first to settle and their early pressure brought a headed goal from Ashley after ten minutes. Continued pressure brought more chances for the Wanderers, but all were spurned.

The goal gave them confidence and they took the lead through Francis, following a strong run.
However, Warriors were not finished and Eldridge added his second with about five minutes to go.
Despite this set-back, Wanderers continued to press forward, gaining a free-kick just inside the opposition half. This was chipped into the box by Attwood and driven into the top left-hand corner of the net by Man of the Match Ashley, for a deserved away win.
On Saturday, Wanderers entertain Inn on the Green, at Verulam.
