Old Parkonians cruised to a comfortable 4-1 victory at Bank of England last weekend.

Parks broke the deadlock when Matt Hart cut back on to his left foot and delivered a cross to the back post where James Kelly sidefooted the ball home.

Bank equalised just before half-time from a free-kick just outside the box, after a foul by Alex Hope.

As the second half began it was clear the equalising goal had galvanised the hosts and they sustained a 20-minute period of pressure.

But Parks finally made a long clearance, which fell to Hart, and he bullied the home centre back and the goalkeeper to put his side back in front.

It was 3-1 as Alex Whelan whipped in a free-kick, where striker Gbolahan Ladipo did enough to stop the keeper from claiming it and the ball fell to Ash Silverman, who hooked the ball home.

And Senol Demirbala added the fourth after being left unmarked in the box.
