EAST Preston Football Club extended their lead at the top of the County League to 13 points, with a 3-0 win at Shoreham on Tuesday evening.
Oli Lockyer’s stunning volley gave EP the lead on 35 minutes and Darren Boswell doubled their advantage six minutes later.
Liam Baitup headed home the third from a Matt Axell cross on 63 minutes and East Preston boss Dominic Di Paola said: “It was pretty routine and we got the job done. It was an okay performance and we’ve got a nice gap at the top now but there’s still a long way to go.”
Mussels manager Bryan O’Toole said: “We hadn’t played for a month and it was always going to be difficult. We’re missing people but I’m not going to make excuses. They are a good side and I think they deserved the result in the end as they had a little bit of quality.”
