Yunus Vaid said: "It was a perfect win as Leytonstone went into the break 3-0 and continued with another six goals after the break.

"More importantly, goalkeeper Adam Patel got on the scoresheet from a spot-kick. We hope for more of the same next Saturday.

"The most important aspect was the passion, the passing and the movement. It was magnificent.

"This is the kind of performance you always dream about but unfortunately it doesn't happen each week. We wish to thank our sponsors NSL."
