In the second half, Nathan Sinclair hit a low left foot shot into the corner and Warren then scored his second, to make it 4-1.

Two late goals from Sinclair, his second, and Ewan Simpson completed the rout.

Manager Kevin Bolam said: “It was very good performance and I was particularly pleased with the last two goals which were very well worked.

“We are a young side and I try and give them licence to play at all times. We have made a good start to the season and want to maintain that at home to Annfield Plain, on Tuesday night.”
