The visitors went 3-0 up when defender Oliver Hutchinson unleashed a rocket shot from 18 yards.

Into the second half, Greenbank battled hard but Ponton were unrelenting and added a fourth goal when striker Elliot Hutchinson turned in the area and struck home.

Man of the match was shared between Oliver Hutchinson, Elliot Hutchinson and defender Harry Willett.
