The Swags had early chances at Fryth Way, with Berry, Seeley and Benjamin all testing visiting keeper Jay Powell.

But they had to make an early change as Aaron Latta and Dan Cook went off with slight injuries.

Joe Berry opened the scoring after a great passing move and, after Benjamin fired over, made it 2-0 when cutting in from the right and sending a left-footed shot in off the post.

The Swags kept going in the second half, as Wes Bracey and Ollie Carter impressed on the flanks.
