DOWNTON were back to full strength, as they beat Alton 3-0.

They made one change from last week’s win which saw Nathan Connelly come in and it was him and Shaun Prentice combine for the first chance of the game but Prentice’s shot was blazed over the bar.

The deadlock was then broken with a 35-yard screamer from Dan Telfer who’s left foot wonder strike flew into the top corner.

The Robins then started to dominate and both central midfielders Craig Tyson and Declan McGregor gave Alton no time to play their usual passing game.

The second half saw Alton come at the Robins and they had some early attempts but nothing Ben Smith and Ben Vincent couldn’t soak up.

The Downton strike partnership seemed to be in full flow with Prentice and Connelly terrorising the home side.

On 60 minutes after some fine footwork from Prentice as he skipped by two defenders and whipped in a pin point cross in to the far post to be met sublimely by the oncoming Harry Crisp to head home and put the Robins two up.

Paul Gulliver was then introduced and it only took him five minutes before he skipped by three defenders and then the keeper to make it 3-0.

Downton saw out the game with ease with what had to be the finest performance of the season.

Manager Ben Smith spoke after the game and told JournalSport: “Playing on the 4G surface is tough enough let alone playing an inform side on it and to come here and dominate in such style as we did was a real lift for everyone.

“Decky hit his 300th league game and him and skipper Craig Tyson were incredible for us today.

“From front to back we were superb. When everyone is available we can really hurt teams and we showed that today.

“The comradery amongst the lads at the moment is great and I think that’s what is making us tick we just have to stay together and keep doing it.”
