Jordan Matthews who failed to add to his 20 plus goals this season was replaced by Tom Hogan, who made an immediate empact as his cross was put away by Finnigan to make it 3-0 and the game was over as a contest.

Amesbury manager Chris Raymond said: "Following a tough week last weekend it was nice to get three points back on the board and with AFC Stoneham drawing 0-0 the title is back in our hands. A victory at Verwood next Saturday will secure it - it is now a massive game for us."

"I am extremely pleased with the lads going unbeaten at home the whole league campaign it’s great achievement for the boys but they know the real job is next week so hopefully we get the job done.

"A big thanks must go to chairman Gino Nardiello and the Amesbury Town committee their work this season has been amazing without them this club wouldn’t run as well as it does.

"We would love it if any local people next week can make it to Verwood to give the boys a boost and try push us over the line and pick up the league title for local area."
