Barking eased to their sixth Essex Senior League victory in succession with a crushing 7-0 triumph at home to Burnham Ramblers on Saturday.

The Blues have been impressive form in the league this season, with 12 wins from 14 games so far, and took the lead after just seven minutes against Ramblers when James Peagram found the net.

Peagram added a second 12 minutes later before being joined on the scoresheet by strike partner Omari Delgado as the Mayesbrook Park outfit led 3-0 with just 26 minutes on the clock.

The hat-trick was complete for Peagram in the 28th minute, while Delgado also struck twice more before the break, in the 36th and 44th minutes, to finish his treble.

Delgado completed the rout with 21 minutes remaining in the game for his fourth of the afternoon as Barking raced to another big success.

The Blues continue to lead the way from Hullbridge Sports by four points, despite having played six games less than their closest rivals.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
